President and Founder of The Last Resort
Nancy has been a Veterinary Technician and Animal Rescuer for 20+ years. She has vast experience with all animals and has rescued and rehabilitated many homeless, orphaned and injured animals over the years. She is an expert in animal care, behavior, and nutrition. From a young age, it was clear that she had a divine connection with all animals. She has been saving them and protecting them since she was a child.
She realized very early in life that she was given a gift, although to some it would seem a burden, she has embraced her gifts and talents and employed them for the sake of all creatures that have crossed her path. Combined with her experience in veterinary medicine and wildlife rehabilitation she has saved hundreds of animals.
She has operated a rescue out of her home and also with the help of local foster homes and barns for over decade. She has dedicated all of her time, love and money to the welfare and well being of animals and has the skills and experience necessary to ensure all the animals in our charge get the care and rehabilitation they so desperately need and deserve.
Vice President and Co-Founder of The Last Resort
There are many people who love animals, but few are born with such a love for them as Samantha. She has been an animal lover and advocate since she was old enough to have a voice. She has helped many animals and been a voice for all that she encounters. It has been her lifelong dream to rescue animals. A year ago she never imagined that she would be the vice president of her own rescue organization.
Samantha is a very special person who cared enough to rescue a special needs dog "Mr. Magoo" who suffers from the many complications of a head trauma , along with her 2 other dogs (both rescues), Abbie who is a lab/pit mix and Nalu (above), a husky mix. In wanting to help save more animals she signed up as a foster for the rescue but ended up falling in love with her new foster child and has permanently adopted him.
It was instantly very clear that combining our strengths and skills, working together we could do so much more good for so many more animals. She has been instrumental in the coordination and founding of The Last Resort and is dedicated to carrying out her life's mission by saving the lives of animals.
Adoption Counselor / MD Chapter Administrator
We first met Mindy when she applied to adopt a husky from us in November 2011. And since then she has adopted 2 more from us! She was one of our favorite adopters of all time and a fellow lover of huskies! Mindy wanted to pitch in and help wherever she could. She offered to volunteer in whatever capacity she could from a distance. Because Mindy lives in Maryland, there wasn't too much opportunity to help with hands on stuff here in NJ. We started working with Mindy to help us with screening adoption applications. It was immediately clear that Mindy was more than capable of doing that and that she was ready, willing and able to do so much more! Eager to save lives and committed to the rescue cause, Mindy wanted to focus on saving some of the dogs in her local high kill shelter in MD. Since then Mindy has single handedly built a localized foster base and has worked diligently to develop and administrate a whole new division of The Last Resort in the Metro MD area. She has saved dozens of dogs already. She has quickly become a very crucial member of our team. We are so very grateful to have her on board as our Maryland Division Administrator and as our friend! We look forward to many more years of working together to save many more lives!
