Our Board of Directors

The founders and directors of Mazie's Mission are passionate about animal welfare. Their primary goal is to end unnecessary euthanasia and ease animal suffering.
Driven by their passion for saving animals, every board member serves their 2-year elected terms in an entirely volunteer capacity.
