Jenna was raised in the California desert in a household of Boston Terriers. She began fostering senior dogs for a local rescue after college.

She began volunteering for Pro-Bone-O in 2019 and is thrilled to participate in such a meaningful mission.
Jenna is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst passionate about behavior science and mutual aid for people and animals. In her free time, Jenna eats spicy food and gets into mischief with her two best friends (her husband and their Boxer-Lab, Dora Bug).
Lisa grew up in Montana and relocated to Oregon in 2000. She was a die-hard cat person until 2008, when she met and fell in love with her heart dog, Macy, a gorgeous American Staffordshire Terrier. Over the next 14 years, not only did Lisa find herself becoming an advocate for bully breeds in general, but she realized she was, through and through, a “dog mom.” Over the years, Macy walked her through many life-altering events, some tragic, some not so much, but always with forgiveness, courage, and unconditional love. This is how Lisa came to understand the difference one dog can make in one person’s life, simply by showing up and being a true friend.
Although Macy is gone now, the lessons she left remain: animals are life-changing and deserve the very best we can give them. This is what led Lisa to Pro-Bone-O, which keeps her passionate about helping these angels on four legs live their best lives. Aside from that, Lisa lives in Eugene with her husband and their Mini Aussie, Blaze. They own a small business, and she actively tries to leave a positive imprint like Macy did, one day at a time.
