A Note from the Executive Director:

First of all I have to thank everyone for making FACF possible! This is an incredible organization that I am truly lucky to be a part of! I understand we have some interesting days ahead of us, but I’m looking forward to meeting all the generous people who have given their time and donations to help FACF and our mission. Please don’t hesitate to call, email, or stop by the office any time! or call 319-541-6390

A little about me, I was born in Iowa City, and grew up in Washington, IA. I attended the University of Iowa and eventually made Iowa City my home in 2015. My love for all animals has always been a big part of my personal life, but hadn’t found an opportunity to make it part of my professional life. Just days before finding FACF I told a friend in frustration that ‘my passion is animals, but it’s not like I can make a career out of it’. As it turns out… I can at FACF! The stars definitely aligned for me, and for that I will be forever grateful.

And of course, what is an intro without the furbabies! You will find a picture of my boys on the staff page, Enzo and Mantecore. They were dressed in their best ties for Monte’s Birthday party. Don’t worry, I’m one cat short of crazy! As for the horses pictured here with me, the girls Birdie and Bonnet. Sadly, I said goodbye to Bonnet little over a year ago at the ripe old age of 32! As a child I saved all my Birthday and Christmas money for a horse which ended up being Bonnet. My childhood dream of owning a horse and working with animals has finally come true. I am so blessed!

A big thank you again to everyone supporting FACF. We couldn’t do it without you!
