Prior to joining the DCSPCA, Audrey worked at the Mid-Hudson Animal Aid, Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary and Brother Wolf Animal Rescue where she created and launched a mobile spay and neuter clinic program, restructured the organization’s medical department and managed a No Kill Community Development program.
