Get To Know Johnny
How long have you been a part of ACS? Why did you get involved?
“I have been a part of ACS since April 2020. I previously worked for the local newspaper and always looked forward to covering Woofrock every year along with the other events happening at ACS, but whenever I visited sanctuary on the hill, I saw countless stories that deserved to be told and heard. So when the opportunity came to be the person to tell these stories, I jumped on it.”
Are you a dog person or a cat person?
“I definitely consider myself a dog person, though my preference has certainly become more balanced since joining ACS. Cats can be just about as awesome as dogs can be. Ultimately, it’s all about finding the right pet so you both can be happy.”

What’s your favorite part of your job?
“Telling the stories of the voiceless. Whether it’s a sad story to raise awareness for the plights of animals in need or the harsh realities of shelter life, or the always-joyful story of an animal with a rough start who has finally found its forever home with a loving family – all of these stories deserve to be told. And they all help forward the mission of rescuing animals in need.”
Tell us about your pets!
“My wife and I have a beautiful black cat, Liesl, whom we adopted from ACS a little over one year ago. She’s without a doubt become my best nonhuman friend.”
Sponsor a pet! Tell us about your best friend at ACS and why he/she deserves to be adopted!
“Lando our office cat is a super sweet guy who really deserves a quiet, loving home. He’s been with ACS awhile now, partly because he’s FeLV positive, which is not as scary as it sounds. It’s autoimmune virus that doesn’t actually make him sick, it just technically makes it easier for him to get sick. He has met many people and other animals every day for several months now and remains completely healthy. Raising awareness about this stigma will be a goal for ACS in 2021. He often sits in my lap while I’m working and if you follow us on Instagram, you’ve probably seen him in our Stories.”
What do you think ACS needs donated the most?
“As a nonprofit organization, monetary donations are always needed and appreciated. As for item donations, our new Amazon wishlists are full of donation ideas!
