Dallas/Fort Worth Area
Whitney Brown, a native of Fort Worth has been involved in rescue work since 2012, aiding in local rescue and volunteering with the Humane Society. After transporting many dogs, fostering and working with shelters, Whitney became aware of the vast animal welfare issues in the state of Texas. This drove her to become more involved in finding homes for abandoned animals through online avenues and educating others about affordable care.
Whitney graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington with a B.A. in History before pursuing a graduate degree in Museum Studies at Baylor University. After years of working in museums, she returned to her love of coaching women’s basketball. As a high school History teacher and coach at a college preparatory school, she found herself teaching Honors Government and was the staff liaison for student volunteer work with animals. This was a lightbulb moment for Whitney, as she realized her love of animal rescue and history could come together for positive change. She knew her knowledge would allow her to help enact legislation that would save Texas animals and sought out ways to become involved.
Whitney and her husband have made Benbrook their home for nearly eight years. They have a newborn daughter and have enjoyed watching her learn and grow. Whitney spends her free time hiking with her thirteen year old rescue, Fletcher. Together they have trekked nearly five thousand happy miles.
