Erin deems - executive director

Erin has been extremely passionate about the animal welfare world since she was a young girl. She graduated from Olds College Animal Health Technology Program, and went on to enforce humane handling and transportation as an inspector for the provincial and federal government. After 6 years of inspection, she moved on to become a Peace Officer for the SPCA. Throughout her experiences she realized there was a gap needing to be filled in the animal welfare world, and decided to devote 100% of her time to starting a rescue, a rescue that would be a 'Saving Grace' for animals that would historically go through auction, or be euthanized.

amanda mcclughan - development director

Amanda has always been an animal lover since she was a little girl. She has been actively involved in the rescue world for about 8 years now and enjoys volunteering with the Alberta spay and neuter task force crew. She volunteered previously for over 5 years with another rescue organization as Adoption & Events Coordinator and has always opened up her home to fosters. Upon the birth of her 1st child, her little animal lover Maylin she took a small break from rescue only to realize it was always drawing her back in! Event Planning & Fundraising has always been something she has enjoyed & excelled at and when she met Erin and realized their was a need for someone to fill that spot with Saving Grace she jumped at the opportunity.
She is ecstatic to be a part of the Saving Grace Animal Society team as the Development Director and continue to follow her passion for animals and advocate for change in the rescue world!
