Meet Our Team


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 veterniary training at Auburn University. I pride myself on being very down to earth and straight forward. An yes! I even drive a pick up truck - a red one! All Animal Care is in the northwest Georgi farming communities, so our Doctors see a wid variety of animals and pet challenges in day to day work.”
