Meet The Team
Len is a lifelong dog lover and owner, originally from New Jersey and somehow found his way back home after serving 23 years in the Air Force. Len is safely home for good and works as a government employee in defense contracting where he and his team are passionately serve our brave men and women in uniform. Len's wife, who happens to be the founder of MatchDog, refers to him as the keeper of the keys... the one who shares the good news..."Yay! We got a grant!" And the bad news... "Sorry, we cannot fund that." Len makes sure we stay in the black and gets the many bill's paid. He doesn't remember signing up for this... he says he's not a volunteer, rather he's a "voluntold". Although he fancies himself as a comedian he takes his role very seriously (please don't tell him he's not funny) and knows that his efforts, like the efforts of all MatchDog volunteers, are saving the lives of so many at risk dogs. Having served in many war zones Len has seen the best and the worst in people- and dog rescue certainly tops the list in bringing out the best in people.
While stationed in England with the Air Force, Kerry’s husband recalls one of the first question she asked him was, “Do you like dogs?” Obviously, he got the right answer because not long after that they married in England where Kerry was a pediatric community nurse practitioner following a successful career in London as a commercial designer. Kerry, a life-long animal lover and dog owner, is a British firecracker when it comes to her passion for the welfare of dogs. Since her adoption as a Jersey Girl, Kerry has been a tireless volunteer in local animal charities and non-profits to “learn the ropes” of dog rescue, transport, fostering, and adoption. Now, as an empty nester, Kerry splits her time as an art teacher, writing honey-do lists for her husband, forcing her friends to look at rescue pups and working to go “prime time” with her co-founders and friends to launch the exciting venture- MatchDog Rescue!
