RedFosa Members

Kathie Jenni


I'm an animal ethics professor at the U of R, but not the "ivory tower" type. I love to get students together with animals of all kinds and help them learn how to respect and protect them. I've lived with many beloved canines and felines over the years--currently with a number of cats that shall go unspecified! 

Rachel Harriger


 Mother of 3 fur-babies and occasional foster family for animals in need. Lover of all things vegan and volunteering time toward making the lives of homeless animals better. 

Mark Deaton


 I'm a crazy cat dude and unrepentant computer geek. In my spare time, I like to ride my scooter around town and attend REDFOSA meetings.

Melody Lemos


 I'm a lover of craft breweries & concerts, but my ultimate passion is
Networking and attempting to save homeless animals.
As a mom to 3 dogs and 2 cats, I believe people who haven't adopted or rescued are truly missing out.
