Holly Skalak

Senior Placement Manager

Holly got involved with Ruff Start Rescue® in 2016 after adopting a puppy. She had such a great experience through the adoption process she decided to start volunteering and fostering that year as well. In 2020 she joined Ruff Start® full time as an Adoption Application Manager and Adoption Follow-up Coordinator and accepted her current position of Senior Placement Manager in 2021. In her role as Senior Placement Manager, Holly oversees the adoption and foster programs at Ruff Start®.

Holly lives in Zimmerman with her husband Sam and their four fur kids; Zipper and Hazel the Aussie mixes, and Meeko and Zoey, their cats. Holly enjoys spending time outdoors whenever possible and in her free time, she loves to go hiking, camping, and traveling with her husband and their dogs!
