Bill Kubicek Founder/Executive Director

“What if?” and “Why not?” are powerful questions that continually offer new opportunities and challenges.

Jessica Slattery Martin Director of Operations

You never know when you’re having good luck.

Colin Mueller Communications Coordinator

I don’t have many regrets, not because I lived a perfect life but because life is a bunch of rolling hills, not mountains, or speed bumps, instead of stop signs, and so you come to a situation and it’s neither good or bad, it just is, and what it means to you is what’s your take on it. But the second part of the equation is what are you going to do about it. A lot of times I’m completely wrong, but all you do is back up and start over.

Lewis Director, K9 Affairs

Above all else, BE CUTE.
