Meet Halfway There Rescue's Board Members
Get to know the people behind all the wagging tails!
Jessica Edwards came to Halfway There Rescue after an event in her life left her feeling the need for a purpose. A random post on Facebook about a Boxer needing a foster led to a phone call that started her journey into the world of animal rescue. Having two dogs of her own: Diesel and Zayda, her fourth foster was a "failure" and Cricket became a part of her family too. Jessica has never known a life without animals of some sort, but dogs have always been a constant source of happiness for her. She is currently vice president of the board. Jessica hopes her dedication to rescue work will help her educate others on the importance of spaying and neutering their pets and spread her belief that every shelter dogs deserves a second chance.
