AMY KNIGHT, DIRECTOR
I decided 9 years ago to create White River Animal Rescue, when I realized how many adoptable dogs were being euthanized in our country.
TINA SMITH FULMER- DIRECTOR & FOSTER MOM
I have been one of the Director's at WRAR since 2009. I foster dogs and puppies as well as keeping Amy in line.
SUSAN PERRY, CFO
I have been volunteering for WRAR for almost two years. I started out fostering but was quickly promoted to Chief Financial Organizer. I also will drop whatever I am doing at work to help deliver puppies.
HEATHER TUNG, TRANSPORTER AND FOSTER
I have been volunteering with WRAR longer than anyone. Before Facebook and even before "rescue" became a thing. I will drop whatever I am doing to help WRAR assist a dog in need. Whether that is driving to Logan airport, on a Saturday, during the summer when the Red Sox are in town or "retrieving" a WRAR dog for placement in witness protection. I, too, foster the behaviorally challenged dogs.
KATHY DAROWSKI, FOSTER MOM
Kathy has been fostering for WRAR since 2012. She specializes in fostering puppies between 2 and 6 months of age. She and her Great Dane WRAR alum Nova work on leash skills, basic manners, potty training, and crate training with every pup they foster. Kathy even brings the pups to work with her at a therapeutic horseback riding facility. This way all the pups are socialized with people of all ages, other dogs, and even adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs and arm crutches. Kathy is also known for taking and posting a ton of pictures of each foster pup she has.
MICHELLE BOLESKI, FOSTER MOM
I adopted a dog from WRAR 7 years ago and have been volunteering ever since. Over the years, I would often come home to a dog, stashed in my bathroom or sitting in a crate, in my Living Room, looking at me.
SYDNEY- FOSTER MOM
I started fostering for WRAR almost two years ago, when Luna, the babys' Daddy, and their nine puppies flew into Lebanon, NH on a Leer jet!
MICHELLE TIFT, ADOPTION COORDINATOR
I have been volunteering with the rescue for five years. Assisting pups find their forever home being an Adoption Coordinator. I enjoy spending time with my family, which includes five fur kids, and friends.
AMBER WERNER-TASK MASTER
Amber helps foster parents keep on top preventative medications for those in their care by sending out monthly reminders and charting when they have been administered. Ensuring all of our precious pups in foster care are properly protected against heartworm disease and flea/tick illnesses.
APPLE WIMOLSET- FOSTER MOM
KRISTI SALAMON- FOSTER MOM AND TRANSPORTER
Kristi started fostering for us in December of 2014. She exposes the dogs to as much as possisble including her Angora rabbits, dog, and her parents llamas and alpacas. She takes them with her to socialize them every chance she gets. Kristi also is an amazing fiber artist, who spins her own yarn, she even spins up dog hair!
CRYSTAL MOSES- FOSTER MOM
I have been fostering and volunteering for WRAR for 4 years. The reason I chose to volunteer is because Amy is the greatest. I mostly foster the difficult dogs which adopters have returned.
AMANDA BENOIST--TEXAS LIAISON AND PUPPY FOSTER
JULIE CHASE- FUNDRAISING & EVENT PLANNER
I adopted a pupper from WRAR in 2015. After learning about the many dogs that are in need of help, I decided to volunteer for the organization that saved my dog's life from the kill shelter. I primarily help with fundraising, event planning and administrative things, but also enjoy being able to see and interact with the adoptable dogs at adoption events
JAIMIE BERNSTEIN- EVENT PLANNER
I have been volunteering for WRAR for just over a year. I am an Event Planner Extraordinaire. I also foster in the summer time when it is not -30 outside.
LESLIE GILL MARTIN HOPE- TEXAS LIAISON
I have been a Texas Liaison to WRAR for almost two years. Most often, I am shanghaied into helping WRAR with pregnant dogs, as I love whelping puppies, cleaning up poop, and sneaking around people's yard, at night, looking for escaped, pregnant dogs.
Other ways to help us rescue dogs
White River Animal Rescue distinguishes itself by its ethics related to dogs’ well-being and by its exhaustive efforts to rescue dogs from euthanasia, sickness and mistreatment.
