Kat Fisher, Founder of Mr. Jojo’s Rescue, has always wanted to save the world. That might explain her background as a social worker. After many years in the field she moved into Human Resources. She was eventually able to run the HR department for an amazing non-profit organization. But let’s face it…working in human resources field is a lot like dog years. Almost fifteen years in the field can feel like 105! Even though she loved her job, that little voice in the back of her head kept nagging at her. That little voice was telling her to stop her career, and save dogs. She ignored the voice for years, but with the amazing support of her spouse (and without that support Mr. Jojo’s would not be possible), she stopped ignoring and started listening. The original plan was to open a small rescue, saving and adopting dogs out. As part of the preparation, she volunteered at some local shelters. What she saw was that senior dogs were almost always passed over for younger dogs or puppies. She also realized that in overcrowded county shelters, seniors were at the highest risk of being euthanized. Especially those with special needs. Kat always had a major soft spot for senior dogs with special needs, even adopting a few of her own over the years with each one older than the one before. Seeing senior dogs lingering alone in shelters, or being euthanized when space was needed broke her heart. Then one day it hit her….why not start a sanctuary where really old dogs could live out their amazing lives in a comfortable home environment ….and that is exactly what she did.
