Sherry Thomas: Adoption Coordinator

“I have been involved in rescue for over 10 years. I have always loved caring for pets. As a teenager in high school, I would play hooky from school just to go volunteer at the local animal shelter.

I fostered with Mostly Mutts for five years. Most recently, I have been organizing adoptions for the Cherokee Humane Society. Each year my team adopts out 400 to 500 dogs. Without our volunteers I could not run adoptions, and without foster families I could not save lives. I pull from about 10 different animal control shelters in GA; some have a kill rate as high as 98 percent! These dogs come to me in need of love and medical care, both of which I give.

I have a wonderful husband who supports my rescue obsession. I also have a teenage son who helps a lot around the house cleaning up after the dogs. Without him I could not do this rescue work.”

Dr. HOWARD ASHLEY

“I was raised in the south, and I did my veterinary training at Auburn University. I pride myself on being very down to earth and straight forward. And yes! I even drive a pickup truck - a red one! All Animal Care is in the northwest Georgia farming communities, so our Doctors see a wide variety of animals and pet challenges in day to day work.”

“I have always been an animal lover but never really had too many pets as a kid. Our family has had several pets in the past 16 years. We are all animal lovers.

We got into fostering when my teenage daughter wanted to help in order to earn her Girl Scout Silver Award. And we have continued ever since. My daughter helps out at the adoption events on Saturdays and I post all the adoptable dogs online. I also work on this website and take photos when needed.”
