BOARD OF DIRECTORS
At this time, the Animal Welfare Project is a conception. Attempting to become a reality, a Board of Directors has recently been formed by community members. 501(c)(3) non-profit status has been achieved.
Vilma Frattone - Formerly head of “Terra Vision Foundation,” supporting a stewardship of the environment, Vilma is interested in saving open space & trail systems for future generations. This concept dovetails with the need for conserving land in order to train animals upon, so they can become productive again & be returned to the community.
