Meet the team
Marie founded Paws for a Cause after years of volunteering for rescues. She has worked in Social Work for 15 years and has been heavily involved in animal welfare since 2008 where she started volunteering at the Ottawa Humane Society as a dog walker, and later volunteered with private rescues and sanctuaries. From 2016-2018, she worked as a kennel attendant where she continues to volunteer today.
International rescue organizations are also very important to Marie, and she has been involved with small groups who are fighting the dog meat trade, and stray animal issues where there are currently no animal welfare laws.
