Board Member/Adoption Committee/Event Committee Chair
Having had dogs all her life, Cindy had no idea of the impact that the little white English Bulldog puppy her daughter received as a college graduation present would have on her life. Wally stole her heart completely and inspired her love for and devotion to this very special breed. A decade later, coping with his passing, and encouraged by her trusted Veterinarian, Dr. Rush, Cindy decided to check out Georgia English Bulldog Rescue. One of the first events she attended was a Meet-Up at Dogma Dog Care held on what would have been Wally’s tenth birthday. Experiencing the joy of being in that room full of so many bulldogs and the comfort of being with all those people with a common passion, Cindy immediately knew she would be involved and began volunteering. Recently retired from a career in the Multi-family Construction, Cindy initially volunteered for transports, soon joined the Events Committee, and later added the Adoption Committee. Cindy was a first time foster failure and adopted Abe, one of GEBR’s “Mill Monsters” rescued from an illegal puppy mill. When not busy with the Bulldogs, Cindy, an Atlanta native and avid sports fan, along with her partner Joe, enjoy spending their time attending Atlanta Falcons, Georgia Bulldogs Football, and Atlanta United games, traveling, and spoiling their twin grandbabies.
