Midwest Regional Director
Stacy Rogers is the Midwest regional director for Best Friends Animal Society. In this capacity, she works with shelters and rescue organizations in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and West Virginia to end the killing of dogs and cats in shelters. Before joining Best Friends, Stacy was the executive director at Almost Home Humane Society in Lafayette, Indiana. She began her career in the kennels of Almost Home at a time when the organizations save rate hovered near 30 percent and witnessed the dramatic changes in animal welfare that resulted in the nokill movement coming to her community. After an inspiring visit to the Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Conference in 2012, Stacy led Almost Home to nokill by focusing on gap analysis, working creatively with a small budget and collaborating with human service agencies to keep pets out of the shelter. Stacy lives in rural Indiana with her husband and their menagerie of pets, including three dogs, four cats and three llamas.
