    Cynthia-- SECRETARY/ FOSTER COORDINATOR
    "When I was younger, stray or lost animals would find me". Cynthia's passion for rescue comes from being around animals her entire life. After having volunteered for many animal shelters and working at different veterinary hospitals in the area, Cynthia co-founded East Bay Animal Rescue. As a dog groomer and as co-founder of the Bay Area Animal Rescue Crew, Cynthia looks forward to where this journey with BAARC will take her and is excited about all the lives that we can save.

    Florence & Jerry-- DIRECTORS OF ADOPTIONS (& HANDYMAN)
    Florence and Jerry grew up with both dogs and cats. They can't remember a time where they didn't have one or the other in their household. While they have always had an affinity for animals, they had a very special pet BellaBoo who they lost a few years ago. It was then that they decided to adopt through a rescue and learned about the joys of fostering and volunteering. Florence and Jerry couldn't be happier to be part of BAARC, where they feel they can really make a difference to help neglected, abused, and abandoned animals find homes.

    Jan-- PHONE/EMAIL MANAGER
    My husband and I have had various types of dogs over the years. When we went to dog shows we would look at the various breeds and I decided I wanted a pug when we were down on dogs as we each had our own dogs when we got married. After our miniature poodle crossed the rainbow bridge it was time to get a pug. She got us into pug rescue. I was with that rescue for 13 yrs. with me being president the last 4 years. I retired from pug rescue but had met Cynthia who worked with our groomer and she told me about this new rescue. We told her we’d like to foster and help this rescue. We actually missed fostering.

    Hannah-- Photographer & Social Media Consultant
    Hannah is the photographer behind Olive & Orange Photography. She has been a longtime advocate of animal rescue and hopes that her pictures make BAARC adoptables more adoptable! Her love of animals started young, but it took some time to convince her parents that she NEEDED a dog. On her 10th birthday, she and her mother went to pick up a young standard poodle, who was found in a dumpster, from a local rescue. She became obsessed with this dog, and her love of animals deepened. Since then, she has also adopted a fluffy mutt from a Southern California animal shelter, named Olive (the inspiration behind Olive & Orange Photography). Her love for animals, family and travel have all inspired her photography.
