Molly Obert - Secretary
Molly is a passionate animal welfare advocate, who believes that every dog deserves a full belly, a warm place to sleep and a life free from physical harm. She grew up in a family of committed rescue advocates, with a myriad of dogs and cats with behavior issues. She also took great joy in helping her uncle, who was a quadriplegic, train his service dogs over the years.
Molly began working with animals professionally in 2011. She says that her experiences in companion animal work have made her even more determined to pursue her passion in animal welfare. She believes that the pet dog industry has promoted the idea that dogs are meant to provide humans with companionship and please their owners without a thought or consideration for their own needs or desires. Molly feels that this idea has clouded humans’ ability to see, appreciate and love dogs for who they truly are, which contributes to hundreds of thousands of dogs in the shelter system per year. She’s set out to help dogs better understand and navigate life as companion animals, and to help people understand and love dogs for the amazing, admirable and astonishing creatures they are.
