Constance Knox has loved animals since primary school.
.And she’s devoted her adult life – on and off the clock – to caring for them in a wide variety of ways.
She wore the most hats at Best Friends Animal Society: as a dog handler, veterinary assistant and foster-home/adoption counselor (she still volunteers with them at events).
One of those hats turned out to be search and rescue. When Katrina hit New Orleans in 2005, Constance (and several other Best Friends folks) went down there to start finding and treating the dogs and cats the storm had stranded. It was a formative event in her life and career, which often overlap.
Her day job is, of course, here at Spoede, with Dt. Yavitz. But her days of animal care don’t end when she leaves the office.
If she’s not at a shelter, helping staff and volunteers place dogs – or train them, or both – she’s working with Central Aussie Rescue and Support. Constance cofounded that 501(C)(3) Aussie Rescue Group and still serves, again, in a variety of roles. Among them: regional coordinator, trainer and adoption/foster counselor.
