Kristen Elrod

Shelter Manager

Wenatchee Valley Humane Society

Kristen is the shelter manager at Wenatchee Valley Humane Society in Wenatchee, Washington, where she lives with her partner, Kennedy, and their four beloved fur kiddos: Cooper, Moby, Moony and Winnifred. Originally from Newnan, Georgia, she began her animal welfare career in Nashville, Tennessee. Her background is in law but her passion for animal sheltering led her to Agape Animal Rescue, PEDIGREE Foundation, Nashville Humane Association, and then all the way to Washington state! Some of the work she is most passionate about at the shelter include playgroups, enrichment and behavior modification. When she’s not at the shelter, Kristen is usually with her dogs enjoying all the great outdoor activities that the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
