Roni is pictured with Libby, one of many mama dogs with puppies that H4P has rescued over the years. Spaying and neutering is so very important to prevent unwanted litters and overcrowding in municipal shelters. Happily, Libby and all of her puppies found fantastic homes!
Roni began volunteering in 1998 with SPCA of Texas where she learned about shelter life, animal care, fostering, and adoption counseling. She trained and mentored new volunteers, photographed pets for the website and found her passion and purpose, earning volunteer of the year and other awards while there.
In 2006, Roni had a unique opportunity to co-found another rescue organization where she served as Director of Operations. Roni supervised and managed the shelter, overseeing the rescue and adoption of over 1,250 dogs and cats in just four years.
In 2010, a renewed rescue vision gave Roni the opportunity to found and grow Habitat 4 Paws, an organization dedicated to responsible care of its animals and their placement into forever homes. The love and passion for animals is what keeps her going no matter what obstacles may come in her way!
Professionally, Roni worked as a legal assistant for 27 years combined with 17 years of shelter and rescue work. She is currently an underwriting assistant for SureTec Insurance Company.
