Circle Of Hope K9 Rescue would only be a dream if not for the wonderful volunteers we have! Meet the Heart and Soul of our Circle! We have all formed a special bond of friendship that spans the miles.
Phyllis is a full-time rescuer and Founder of Circle of Hope K9 Rescue. She is a companion animals hero. A matchmaker of sorts for adopters and our guiding star to keep going forward to help as many as we can. Working every day to save a lives of many that would die without her.
From Phyllis: " When my youngest son was 9 he sat in a kennel at the vet's office with a dog who had lost his will to live. The response was almost immediate - this injured dog is handicapped and living with a man in a wheelchair."
Phyllis is the proud mother of 7, grandmother of 16, and the wife of her soul-mate. She has a very close family and are very involved in their children's and grand-children's lives. Phyllis has devoted a huge portion of her time towards rescue efforts and the community.
Mom, grandmother and wonderful friend. Angie was essential in making Circle Of Hope K9 Rescue the organization it is today. The brief time we had together in TN (5 years) created an unbroken bond of friendship.
Pam is the Mom of 2 and all of their friends. She is a valued asset to Circle of Hope and helps with many, many aspects of Rescue. She is always there in for those that need her.
