Board Member, Director, Record-keeping and PACFA compliance
Responsible for adoptions in
Hi! I'm Casey. I'm originally from the South West suburbs of Chicago. I moved to Denver with my then boyfriend now husband Justin in 2014 . I joined the Board of Directors in July of 2018 but have been volunteering and fostering for APWGSPR since it's inception. We moved to Montana in Spring of 2019 and I now head our rescue efforts in the PNW.
My interest, turned love and passion, for GSPs began in 2014 when by chance I found a GSP roaming the streets where we lived in Denver's Ball Park District. Without hesitation I stepped into action-- Tia Torres style-- and some how managed to get this sweet and emaciated Pointer who had been on the run for 2 weeks into the backseat of my car! After caring for him we planned to keep him! As fate would have it we discovered he had a microchip and he already had owners that loved him. They were so grateful to have him found. Thus began our search for a GSP of our own!
After months of searching, I was days away from putting a large deposit down with a breeder across the country, when my good friend and now former board member Emily Ross introduced me to the idea of fostering for APWGSPR. We've since fostered over 40 Pointers from puppies to senior dogs since January 2017. We have eventually "foster failed" and adopted our GSP Reggie in September 2018.
We've been apart of so many amazing dogs' lives that have given us tons of great stories and left our hearts with the warmest of memories. I love what APW GSP Rescue stands for and am so grateful to do it with such an amazing group of ladies!
