Krystina Van Meter
Office Operations and Dispatch Officer
My name is Krystina Van Meter and I am the Officer Operation and Dispatch Coordinator at the shelter. I graduated in 2015 with my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and I have been with the shelter since September of 2015. I have always had a compassion for animals of all kinds. Working at the shelter has given me the opportunity to help the dogs of Fairfield County in finding their homes. It is truly amazing to be able to take part in this experience and I couldnít imagine being anywhere else. As you can see, the two dogs in the picture are the dogs I come home to. While our house is hectic with having the dogs, 3 children, and other animals, we wouldnít have it any other way.

My name is Courtney, and I have been with the Shelter since April 2017. I have one dog of my own her name is Leia (Princess Leia). She is very protective of our family, and best friends with my 4 boys. My passion is helping others, and being at the shelter I am able to help both people and dogs of the community. Some days can be more challenging than others, but nothing beats seeing the excitement between a shelter dog and his/her new family. I believe every dog deserves love and compassion, and being here I am able to help them find that.
