Our team is comprised of 5 dedicated animal lovers, a volunteer Board of Directors who provides strategic guidance for OFOSA, and hundreds of volunteers who contribute their time and talent to virtually every aspect of our operation. Without these volunteers we would not be able to fulfill our mission.
Chris Hill – Director
Chris found her passion for rescuing animals a little late in life and now serves as president and managing director for OFOSA. She manages the finances, interacts with the public, helps to set policy and whatever the rest of the staff wants her to do, including answering the phone. You might run into Chris at an adoption event or at Fido’s World’s First Dog Tap House counseling and processing adoptions. She is married with two grown daughters, a dog and two cats.
Arlene Murray – Dog Coordinator/Adoption Lead/Foster Coordinator
Arlene has been an integral part of OFOSA since 2010. She handles ‘all things dogs’ from selecting them for rescue at high kill shelters, intake and evaluation once they arrive, foster coordination, adoption event lead, data entry, and surgical prep/set-up. She pretty much wears A LOT of different hats. She is married and currently has 3 dogs of her own, 3 that came from OFOSA, and one foster dog.
Anne Haynes – Director of Development
Anne is a life-long animal lover and has one rescue dog of her own, Murphy! She spent the majority of her career in radio and television sales and sales management before ditching the corporate world to help rescue dogs and cats. Anne has been with OFOSA since May 2017 handling fundraising, donor relations, marketing, and communications. Anne has a partner, two grown daughters, and a son who is a college student.
Christy Schwarz – Cat Coordinator / Medical Team
