Marlana (Gia) Perrett serves as vice president of a small 501(c)(3) rescue group in Central Florida. She has been around animals since she was born and worked in pet stores growing up. Because of her family’s pet supply store, Gia has developed a unique perspective on natural pet care. Over the past five years she has stepped up in rescue efforts, including TNR programs, and she is an active volunteer and foster. Since she has entered the rescue community, Gia has found like-minded individuals who often have the same goals and love for animals. An advocate for animals, she agrees that spreading awareness about the issues, humane education, and coming up with ideas will help make the future bright for both animals and humans.
