Kate Rengel

Kate’s passion for animal welfare began over ten years ago when she adopted her first dog, Riley.   After graduating with a bachelors degree in Finance from Florida State University in 2010, Kate and her husband, Stephen, settled in Marion County.  Kate realized through exposure to community shelters that there were many animals being discarded and euthanized, simply because they had no where to go.  With a focus on growing VOCAL’s community outreach programs, Kate’s biggest objective is to keep pets healthy and happy in their homes, and to keep them out of shelters.
