SAID

"I have had the pleasure of working with Rebecca and cannot conceive of a more dedicated, knowledgeable or cooperative person. We are building our animal shelter now, a year ago this seamed impossible. I believe that without Rebecca's efforts it could not have happened. Divergent goals, personalities and historical conflict made the possibility of this event ever taking place doubtful. She handled some very difficult situations with tact, resourcefulness and a sensitivity to the concerns of both parties."   

Rae Welch, President, Blue Mountain Humane Association                    La Grande, OR USA

"We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your assistance in attempting to resolve our outstanding animal shelter issue. We feel confident that we can now move forward in a united approach to having a supportive and functional animal shelter."
