The big-picture impact of ARLEP is what drew Leticia to the organization. She had always been an animal lover and wanted to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. After 16 years of volunteering with ARLEP, the organization has become like family to Leticia.

Terri was searching for an animal organization that had true heart. A chance meeting with ARLEP’s founder, Loretta Hyde, exposed her to the heart and passion behind ARLEP’s work. Terri knew she’d found what she had been looking for. In pouring her heart into the work at ARLEP, Terri has helped create a safe haven for abandoned and injured animals. She proudly cares for 10 beloved rescue dogs.
