Having worked in the nonprofit arena for many years as the Development Director and founding member from 1975 for A CHILD IS ADOPTED (an international aid and adoption organization), and also as the past Board President for Children’s Charities of America, Jodie possesses a skill set ideal for leveraging dollars into the most efficient action possible. She also arranged all transportation for children being adopted from 1969 until 2010. Jodie was Knighted in 2003.
Driven by a deep passion for animals, Jodie Richers founded Dogs on Death Row in 2006 along with the following organizations: Habitats for Dogs and Cats, Cats on Death Row, Horses on Death Row and Canine Heroes
Jodie is tireless in her efforts to rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for unwanted dogs everywhere. She is also committed to educating the public about the inhumane nature of gassing and heart prick as a means of killing animals.
Although Jodie is the heart of DODR, many people contribute their time, talent, and treasure to keep us going. We hope that you, too, will become a valued DODR supporter and friend. www.dodr.org
