Meet Our Staff

KWAS is blessed with a dedicated group of staff and volunteers.  Each person who works with KWAS makes decisions and takes action with the best interest of the animals as their first priority.  Each person brings unique skills and talents to the shelter.  Together, we operate as a single team, all sharing in the many duties required every day: cleaning, caring for the animals, mobile adoptions, education programs, working with adopters, spay and neuter programs, vaccinations, transportation and being animal welfare role models to the community.
