Meet Anel

During the day (and often the night) I am a corporate attorney, but like Lizzie, Jenna and Charlotte, my true passion is animals. I have always had an interest in animal rights, including those of farm animals, as well as cats and dogs. After my first year of law school, I adopted a cat (Tinka) from the North Central Animal Shelter in Los Angeles, and Mara joined our family from the South LA Animal Shelter a few months later. I joke that it’s their house, and I’m just their devoted live-in butler/nanny/cleaner. I started volunteering with the West LA Animal Shelter in late 2015, and when I found out Lizzie Lewis, my colleague, also volunteered there, I jumped at the chance to learn from her and her close group of fellow animal lovers. In 2016 I started fostering kittens, and so far have fostered seven kittens. My lifelong passion for bettering the lives of animals, together with the wonderful opportunity presented to me by Lizzie and Jenna, has brought be to The Rescue Team, and I couldn’t be more excited.
