Please share a particular area of interest that is important to you.

Before coming here, I did a little advocacy at my high school. I handed out papers outside of the local KFC, and sat in the halls during dissection week. But being from a small hick town, it seemed as though I stood alone. Since coming to the Phoenix area, I have turned my focus when I learned that I live in an area with the 2nd highest euthanize rate for shelter animals. Breaks my heart.


Recently moved to Arizona from a small town in Wisconsin. To says its a change would be an understatement.

    Hi Alyssa,
    Welcome to the group! Congrats on your baby girl. Feel free to come to our events in the meantime while you wait for her arrival. Our Mom's Night Out events are really fun. We have one coming up on April 5th! And this Friday we are having an Easter potluck. Hope you can make it. :) Looking forward to meeting both of you.
