Jenny 2

Jennifer Romesburg

Foster and Rescue Coordinator of Central Missouri Humane Society

Since 2009, Jenny has been responsible for overseeing 1,000 animals and 250 foster homes on an annual basis. In addition, she works with the feline and canine behavioral team to determine which animals are suitable for adoption or whether they are best in a rescue. This has led to over 5,000 animals placed into rescues when adoption was not a viable option.


Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fisheries and wildlife from the University of Missouri, Jenny has worked at CMHS for the past 10 years fulfilling her life’s passion of ensuring a loving, suitable home for all animals in need. This pursuit has resulted in the founding of Boone County Animal Care, the first cat-only rescue in mid-Missouri.


While Jenny serves as the President of this rescue, her efforts do not stop there. She also holds the distinction of being a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for the Missouri Department of Conservation. In this role, she rehabilitates and fosters everything from raccoons, deer, squirrels, and opossums, just to name a few.


Jenny Lives in Columbia, MO with her husband and three sons.
