Christina has been passionate about animals since she was a child.  She's been involved in animal welfare for over 27 years, including serving as the Vice President of the Rescue and Humane Alliance of Los  Angeles. She shares her home with several furry and feathered "kids."


Renae Distasio - Vice President/Treasurer

Renae has been volunteering in animal rescue for the last 10 years. She is the proud parent of a rescued dog (and a rather mental rescue dog at that...)

Jesse McCann - Director

Jesse is new to the nonprofit world, but he is an avid animal lover and wanted new ways to help. He is owned by one of the cutest dogs on the planet, Jansky.



Krista Schnabel, VMD - Veterinarian at VCA Arden Veterinary Animal Hospital
Scott Mann - Technology Consultant
Larry Bosma, DVM -Veterinarian, and owner of North Valley Veterinary Clinic




Jessica Stansell-Aiyegbusi - Secretary

Jessica served on our Board for almost 2 years before she lost her battle with breast cancer. She was somewhat new to professional rescuing but had been doing animal rescue on her own for several years. We were thrilled to have her and her endless enthusiasm on our team! She was the mother to 5 children and a variety of furry creatures (not to mention all the neighborhood kids she took in!)
