I firmly believe that someone out there put Jordan in my path. We met when we were in our tireless search for Ruby through SCV Missing Pets and have since supported eachother in all our rescue efforts. Someone out there knew that we were just supposed to rescue animals together. I am very proud and honored to have her as not only as a friend, but as a member of our board.
Jordan’s father was notorious for bringing home stray animals as a child, and he introduced his wife and daughter to the idea of rescuing animals in need. Over the years Jordan, with the help of her family, has adopted and fostered dogs, cats, birds, snakes, rabbits, chinchillas and various other small animals. At the age of 21 Jordan went to Baldwin Park and made her first independent dog rescue as an adult. She took home a dog with an overbite, that nobody wanted, and named her Josephine. Eventually Jordan was told that Josephine had other congenital deformities, including a bad heart valve. Tragically, Josephine died before her 5th birthday, which drove Jordan to fully dedicate herself to rescuing unwanted dogs. Jordan has a Bachelors Degree in Deaf Studies and Special Education. She has fostered deaf dogs, and applies the patients and teaching skills that she acquired working with children, to fostering dogs.
