A South Carolina native, Jane Stewart began her career in rescue as a foster parent and volunteer. She was shocked by the number of animals that lost their lives simply because there was no place to put them. From that moment, she made it her life’s passion to help animals in need. Jane has worked in animal rescue for the past thirteen years serving as the Executive Director at the Georgia SPCA and Athens Area Humane Society.
Jane has been married to Tim Stewart for 30 years. Together, they have two children, two cats, and three dogs. They even have three grand-dogs and a grand-cat! Though she is a Clemson Graduate, her family are strong UGA Dawgs Fans. They spend most of the football season in Athens at Football games. Jane loves the DAWGS as much as the Tigers (she says).
Jane said, “I am very excited to work with a group that approaches rescue as a problem solver and not just a band-aid.”
