Angie Tidbury HOMING COORDINATOR
Every dog deserves a loving, safe home and I’m so happy to play my part in rescue. I have 3 Rommies and a Brit. I met Kate 4 years ago when she kindly transported my first Rommie, Mica, from Romania. The rest is history and I’m now part of a fantastic rescue.
Hazel Crouch ADMIN COORDINATOR & DOG WHISPERER
I answer Facebook messages, but mostly work to help the dogs gain trust in humans and learn how to be a loving pet, ready for their forever home. I have 3 dogs, 2 of which came from similar shelters in The Balkans. I didn’t know much about kill before. When I heard about DWTWR I volunteered to help other dogs find love. It’s challenging but so rewarding.
Deb Archibald FOSTER COORDINATOR
Some of our dogs need a little more work before they can go into permanent homes and so our foster network is vital. Fosterers get dogs used to family life, living in a home and how to be social. My job is to support them.
