Meet Our Team

Our team is second to none in every sense of the meaning. We couldn't have a group with more heart, dedication, passion and enthusiasm for what we do - SAVING DOGS!! Every one of them has jobs, families, lives, hobbies, etc and still manage to make time to volunteer with Releash Atlanta and work with our affiliated rescues, to help make adoption EASIER for you! We want NO excuses to not adopt, that is why we are here!

Kristin - Founder - Chariman of the board

I think I have had every different animal you can find, ride, adopt or catch since I was a kid. I have an extra soft spot for dogs, they're innocent and voiceless and often end up in the wrong hands so once I learned of this "rescue world" I never looked back. I have 8, yes 8 of my own dogs and there isn't a lot of times we don't have a foster thrown in the mix, too. I am happy to have found an amazing number of people that share my passion, and have a common goal of helping people adopt! I have a career in medical sales, I enjoy boating, attempting to cook, spending time with family/friends, hiking, biking and of course, getting dogs out of the shelter! 

DD - Board Member - Event Coordinator

I am a mother of three and a pediatric nurse of many many years. I have a huge passion for animals and for rescue. I started fostering about two years ago and now I am a board member for Releash Atlanta! I enjoy coordinating our vetting, events and matching needs! 

Amber - Board member

Growing up my family was always rescuing something- birds, opossums, squirrels, dogs, cats, you name it! My own personal love for rescue came about when I found a stray dog left for dead on a highway my senior year of college. That same dog is now my very own love bug, along with three other dogs, a husband, son and step daughter. I am a critical care nurse of almost 12 years, but my true passion is (and always has been) helping dogs!
