Founder, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer
Beth is the inspiration behind Pets for Patriots and in her leadership capacity is responsible for strategy, operations, development and day-to-day management of the organization. She founded the charity in 2009 when she felt called to address the urgent and complementary needs of shelter pets and veterans: companionship, acceptance without judgment and love.
DIRECTOR OF VETERAN OUTREACH
Ted is a Vietnam Marine Corps combat veteran. In 2011 he adopted a then three year-old Great Pyrenees mix named Bentley through our program, and soon after joined Pets for Patriots as a volunteer. Ted’s initial responsibilities included shelter and veterinary partner outreach, after which he transitioned to work directly with veteran applicants and adopters.
DIRECTOR OF ADMINISTRATION + PROJECTS
Susan is a lifelong entrepreneur, pet lover and volunteer. In 2011, she joined Pets for Patriots as a volunteer, during which time she managed all in- and out-bound writing projects, program print orders, administration of our Veterans’ Pet Food Bank Program and other critical tasks.
