Since college Lauren has been working to help cats and dogs, even creating a spay/neuter transport program for people without vehicles while attending UGA in Athens. Over the past ten years she has worked with other local shelters and rescue groups in fundraising, marketing, and managerial roles. “Planned PEThood tackles pet overpopulation from all angles. It isn’t just a band-aid. We are actually solving problems which I LOVE!” When she isn’t working Lauren spends time with her four dogs, two cats, and young daughter. They are big movie enthusiasts, and Dawg Fans!
