Application Manager and Adoption Follow-Up Coordinator
Madelyn initially found Ruff Start Rescue when she adopted her current fur-baby, Luna-Shappa. However, she grew up around all sorts of animals ranging from dogs, cats, hamsters, guinea pigs and even bearded dragons!
Maddie not only has a personal background in caring for animals but also a professional one. Once a dog bather at a grooming salon, this position made her realize that she wanted to spend the rest of her career to helping those who cannot advocate for themselves – the animals!
Maddie started volunteering with Ruff Start in April 2020 and graduated from University of Wisconsin – River Falls in May 2020 before joining the team as an Application Manager and Adoption Follow-Up Coordinator in late 2021.
