She has been involved with several rescues over the years and felt now was the time to branch out on her own. She sought out the most compassionate, like-minded and dedicated people to join her on this adventure. She is passionate about educating the public about breed discrimination, the importance of fostering, spay and neutering and saving the seasoned dogs who may not have as long on the earth to teach us what they know. This is why the Senior or Senior Program was created.
Co-Founder & Board Officer
Kristen Nicole Gamble
Kristen is a Social Worker for the County of San Bernardino for the last 9 years and counting.
She has been a dog advocate most of her life. She grew up wanting to be a vet but took a different turn in school when she realized science was not her forte. But still greatly felt the need to help animals. When she moved out on her own 13 years ago, that's when she started to get into rescue. She was an independent rescuer until she decided to join forces and open her own rescue. She has fostered several cats and dogs, rescued her own animals and helped whenever she could. She enjoys giving to those in need to help their animals stay in a loving-home, and rehabilitating dogs to find a new forever home. Her goal is to help educate the community about the importance pf spay and neuter in order to help reduce the overpopulation of cats and dogs which will ultimately lead to less euthanasia of animals.
