Our staff and volunteers are highly dedicated to the New Life K9s program and work hard every day to help our mission. 

Jennifer Tate
Program Manager

Jennifer comes to New Life K9s with over 10 years of management experience. She has always had a soft spot for animals and has rescued several dogs and cats throughout her life. Joining New Life gave her the opportunity to combine her love of animals and desire to help others. When she isn't working, she is out and about enjoying family time with her husband and daughter.
