In Memoriam: Dave Naclia

September, 21 2015


Our rescue lost a loyal ally, and co-founder Janet lost a a much-loved dad this week with the sudden passing of Dave Naclia. Dave was a volunteer, foster, adopter, and transporter for us, and we will miss his boisterous laugh, good nature, and kind heart more than we can say. It has been an honour and a privilege to have earned his support and friendship over the years and we are eternally grateful to have had the chance to get to work with him.
