Stacy Rogers

Regional Director, Midwest & Great Plains

Best Friends Animal Society

Stacy Rogers is the Midwest and Great Plains Region director for Best Friends Animal Society. She works with shelters and rescue organizations in 13 states to help them improve lifesaving and reach no kill. 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 organization’s save rate hovered near 30 percent. She witnessed the dramatic changes in animal welfare that resulted in the no-kill movement coming to her community. After an inspiring visit to the Best Friends’ No More Homeless Pets Conference in 2012, she helped lead Almost Home to no-kill 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, three cats and three dogs.
