Just like the pups we bring in, Devon Gerby has seen the sights of the world, including Vancouver, Argentina, Indonesia, Singapore, and the Netherlands. Along those travels she’s had three rescue pets two dogs, Poncho (poodle mix) and Fido (lhasa apso mix), and one blind male cat, Potato. That experience is what makes her the dynamite Foster Manager who handles and tracks our incoming pups with their foster families she is. We asked her favourite quote and you’d almost think we’re making it up but we didn’t: The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog (M.K. Clinton, Showstoppers).
Baby, Laura Sharkey was born to run, which is ideal because her perfectly naughty beagle Toby has bounds of energy, and has no problems chasing her around town looking for Toronto’s best croissant. One of her many goals in life is to live abroad by the ocean or somewhere in the mountains. Of note, her favourite place to visit in the world is Manasquan, New Jersey. As one of SOS’s Foster Co-ordinators, Laura welcomes new applications and guides them through the fulfilling world of fostering.
