FUR the love of animals
Rescue can be physically, emotionally and financially draining, but our dedicated team pours their heart and souls into it. They know that even on their worst day, it is still better than it is for the homeless animals needing our help.
Michelle Underwood Director / CEO
Michelle Underwood has been actively involved in animal rescue since 2014. She jumped in with both feet fostering a momma dog and her 8 puppies and has been hooked ever since. Before founding Furget Me Not, her experience in rescue included being the foster home coordinator, developing procedures for puppy fosters and medical protocol for Parvo puppies. Along with her daughter, Anna Grace, they have treated more than 300 Parvo puppies. Animal rescue is a family affair with her husband, Brett and son, Ian, helping wherever needed. Her son, Whitt Proctor, helps with event setup and transportation and daughter, Anna Grace, helps with the daily care while working at a vet clinic and going to college to become a veterinarian.
She has foster failed more times than she will admit and has a soft spot for seniors, allowing them to live out the rest of their lives in her home.
Sara Alavi Vice president / COO
Sara Alavi shares her home with her senior foster fail who has helped socialize (and boss around) the many fosters in their home throughout the years. Sara got into rescuing to make a difference, but has gotten so much more out of it, including the best life-long friends. In addition to animal rescue, Sara’s passions include talking (a lot!) and anything and everything sparkly.
Maggie Butler Secretary
Maggie lives in Huntsville with her husband, daughter and 4 fur babies. In her free time Maggie enjoys traveling, cooking and being involved in animal rescue. Maggie has a passion for rescuing animals and her favorite part of animal rescue is the transformation that is seen from the shelter to the animals new forever home.
Dawn Minor – Treasurer / CFO
Dawn Minor lives in Huntsville with her husband and two sons. She has great compassion for all animals and nothing compares to the joy of seeing an abused or neglected animal get placed in a safe and loving home, or seeing an injured animal nursed back to health. Dawn’s wish is to see that every animal has the opportunity for their best life whether they have chronic health problems, are in their final years or are just starting life.
