Jme is the founder of Motley Zoo animal rescue. She grew up with small pets but never even had a cat till she was in college, after sneaking it in to her house. Her first dog came when she got married to Bryan, also a director of Motley Zoo. Their dog Jasmine was not socialized with other dogs, and went from the sweetest little thing, to a demon when confronted with another dog. The couple decided that this was not normal and that fostering might be able to help them work with their own dog, and save some lives. Jasmine learned to play and they now have four little dogs. After fostering for a couple different rescues, they believed things could be done a little differently- and they set out to do so. In 2009, Motley Zoo animal rescue was founded- and over 750 pets later, this rescue is known for it’s excellent service both to their people and pets as well as their unique approach to rescue. Their image and ideals are fresh, forward and innovative.
