What We Strive For

What We Strive For

Molly, Sarah and Jasmun all came together through connections in the animal rescue community. Through the years we have all done a lot to further the cause of animal welfare - fostering, adopting, rescuing, behavior training andworking with people to improve the lives of companion animals everywhere. We strongly feel that every companion animal deserves a home and want to help shelters get more animals in homes.

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.

Sarah began her time in animal welfare as the Director of a small foster home based rescue called A Soft Place to Land in Ft. Collins. ASPTL began as a puppy mill dog rescue, but soon morphed into a senior and special needs focused rescue. Sarah has worked with a few of the larger open admissions shelter in the area through the rescue, as well as several smaller rural shelters from surrounding states. After seven years Sarah needed a break from rescue and moved into the dog training field in order to help dogs stay in their homes and out of shelters. She is currently an associate trainer with Summit Dog Training in Ft. Collins. Sarah shares her home with her squad of misfit rescue dogs and her two cats.
