Meet our Team
Chief Executive Officer
Cydny has been rescuing animals since she was a small girl dragging the neighborhood strays and wounded wildlife home. Opening an animal rescue with the mission of serving both the pet owning and wider rescue community has been a dream of Cydny’s since she began formerly working with animals as a veterinary technician 20 years ago. Excited to start a possible career path of helping animals, this field instead opened Cydny’s eyes to the realities of pet neglect, abandonment and mismanagement leading her to two decades of varied volunteer, disaster response, transport, foster and rescue efforts, all leading down a very different path than originally intended. SUSAN is a labor of love in honor of Cydny’s mother who taught her a deep respect for all life and the term “fur people” to reflect that animals are our peers, not our subjects. Cydny and her partner Mark are raising a beautiful, animal loving and rescue blooded toddler, Grey as well as caring for their nephew and rescue assistant Cameron and co parenting an awkward menagerie of 4 rescue dogs and 6 rescue cats.

Erica’s love for animals started in childhood. Her best friend in her early years was her first rescue dog, Lucky. As she got older, she nursed orphaned birds and bunnies back to health in the neighborhood. Rescue dogs and cats have been part of Erica’s family for her entire life. Shortly before the pandemic, she took in her first set of foster cats and has fallen in love with the rescue community. Erica now lives on a little farm with a yard full of kids – baby Mason is expected to make his appearance in June to join big brother and sisters Olivia, Austin, Lilah, Anna and Emma – along with a dog, three cats, chickens and ducks.
