started as public relations assistant in november 2021 and have taken on a variety of responsibilities from designing graphics to writing biographies to creating social media content to handling dogs on local news segments! special skills learned in this position also include dog-friendly cake baking, see photos below ︎

︎︎︎ kennel cards

redesigned kennel cards to follow brand guidelines and make text easier to read when walking around the kennels. this has helped people more quickly access information they typically want to know when adopting a dog or cat. 

another important change has been creating an easily-accessible way to learn more about our heartworm positive (HW+) dogs through their kennel cards. previously, potential adopters would have to go to a completely different building to ask our adoption counselors for more information, but now it can be found by just scanning a QR code on the dog’s kennel card! this is helping to combat the negative stigma around HW+ dogs and give information to people who may be interested in adopting one of these wonderful pups.
