Speaker Bio
In her role as executive director of Better Together Animal Alliance, Mandy created a supportive culture that honors the human-animal bond. She sees a world where people are inherently good and where animal welfare advocates work upstream to help people care for their animals. She believes in giving humans the benefit of the doubt, removing the “shame barrier”, and shifting organizations away from transactional approaches to ones committed to supporting both sides of the human-animal bond.

By eliminating the fear-based, often people-shaming, transactional approach from her organization's culture, Mandy and her team increased the number of animals assisted by over 500%, reduced length of stay in the shelter by 77%, and reduced owner surrenders by 31%. Mandy is the founder of the rehoming program, Home To Home. She enjoys the opportunity to work with animal welfare organizations throughout North America learning from their experiences and supporting each other.
