Faith is the Shelter Management Advisor for American Pets Alive! and conducts site visits and responds to crises from other shelters. She began her journey volunteering for APA! in 2009 and in 2011 became the Operations Manager for APA!. In 2016, her role shifted to Facilities, Information, and Legal Services Manager. In 2018 her role shifted away from Austin Pets Alive to American Pets Alive so she could begin spreading the No Kill mission across the US. Faith has helped spread the word of the No Kill mission by moving temporarily to Edinburg, Texas and working as the temporary shelter manager at Palm Valley Animal Center for 3 months. She helped increase their live release rate to almost 50%, up from 37%. Since her return to Austin, she has been taking weekly trips to area shelters across the US to evaluate intake process, animal flow, and rescue efforts. Faith has personally helped several shelters facing the crises of depopulation due to distemper avoid the need for depopulation and has helped these shelters develop creative and useful alternatives to save the animals currently in the shelter as well as new animals coming in. Faith has also been invited to speak at many conferences to educate the rescue communities on proper intake, disease prevention as well as what to do if you have a disease outbreak. Faith and her family have fostered over 800 animals since the beginning of her time with APA!.
