Victoria Cowper, VP of Operations
Victoria’s 22+ years’ experience in animal welfare is wide-ranging and vast. While much of her career has been working for animal shelters and spay/neuter organizations in Arizona, she has spent the last several years traveling the country to provide leadership and executive-level support for animal shelters and spay/neuter groups in transition. Her experience in open admission and limited admission animal shelter management, disaster response, spay/neuter services in rural and metro areas, and managing county and city animal care and control contracts make her an ideal leader for developing programs and collaborations to advance our mission in the community. Her expertise in implementing lifesaving strategies also brings a unique perspective to the ongoing management and future development of our new Pet Support and Resource Center.
