Deb Shapiro, Northeast Adoption Volunteer
Deb has always had a love of animals since she was a very young child, ask her parents about the cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, worms, turtles, injured birds that ended up in their home while she was growing up. She has been fostering animals for over 20 years and for the past 10 + directly involved in animal rescue.
Deb loves to travel and has been to 46 states and over 20 countries. She has lived in Atlanta, Washington DC, and is now living back home in Boston, where she was born and raised. She works as an IT Project Management consultant and loves her job, but works to support her habit of rescuing animals.
She currently lives on the waterfront in Boston with her three dogs, two of who are Two by Two rescues, an 18-year-old cat and a fish named Freda.
From Sonya’s Heart: Deb is instrumental in expanding our territory of influence. The Northeast has so much to teach the South on humane care. It is with great excitement that Deb joins the team to help us move more animals from the South to the North where the overpopulation is not an issue. She certainly has a heart for the animals so now we will train her love sweet tea!
