Mandy Evans

Executive Director

Home To Home/Better Together Animal Alliance

As executive director of Better Together Animal Alliance and the ever-growing Home To Home™ network, Mandy sees a world where people are inherently good and where animal welfare advocates work upstream to help people care for their animals. She believes in giving humans the benefit of the doubt, removing the “shame barrier” and shifting organizations away from transactional approaches to those committed to supporting both sides of the human-animal bond. Thanks to this philosophy, Mandy and her team have increased the number of animals her organization assists by more than 500%, reduced length of stay in the shelter by 77 percent and reduced owner surrenders by 33 percent. She hosts the podcast People are Animals Too, Darn It, consults with shelters throughout the nation and speaks to groups to share the importance of a positive, no-shame culture and how it can translate into all areas of our lives.
