Shannon was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Luckily, her husband is a dog lover too because they entertain and love seven beautiful rescue dogs in their home in Braselton, GA. While having a career based in insurance, her true compassion is helping homeless, helpless and abused dogs. After working with various rescue groups, she (with the help of her husband and brother-in-law) founded Great Rescue Dogs to be of assistance to small- to mid-sized rescue groups in Georgia by promoting and helping them network together for the common cause.
Exposure, funding, fostering and transporting are daily events that every group needs help with. Educating the public and supporting efforts to pass spay/neuter laws is vital to cut down on the overpopulation and needless killing of the pups. Shannon is working on Great Rescue Dog’s Mobile application to provide a listing of rescue groups, their partners and events to promote a community-wide effort. While she and her partners love their work, they hope that one day there will be no need and all doggies will have safe, secure and loving homes.
