Heather Owen

Executive Director

One Tail at a Time

Heather Owen co-founded One Tail at a Time, a Chicago-based animal rescue organization, in 2008. She left her career in litigation in 2015 to run One Tail full time, and since has focused on finding creative ways to keep pets with their original families, rescuing big dogs, and bringing the community together over a shared love of pets. When not working, Heather tries to spend as much time as possible outside with her rescue dog Trout.
