Ann Knight, Co-President

Ann emigrated from the UK in 1987, enrolled in the South Texas College of Law, then graduated with her JD in 1992. Ann presently practices law in Houston specializing in civil litigation. Ann has always loved animals and has been involved in THLN since 2010 because animal welfare issues and speaking up for the voiceless is - and always will be - important to her. Ann volunteers with several animal rescue groups in Houston, including Scout’s Honor Rescue and Rescued Pets Movement and it would be unusual for her not to have a foster dog or cat in her home. In addition to fostering, Ann is a committed fundraiser for the Rescued Pets Movement. 

She also owns and manages a pet boarding & daycare facility in Cypress, Texas, and serves on the board of her HOA. Ann has 4 dogs, Scrappy, Frank, Nevada, and Calvin - all rescues from the Houston area.

Shanda has been volunteering with THLN since 2008, having previously served as Southeast Texas Chapter President and committee chair. In her day job, Shanda is a pharmacist at a cancer center. When not working and volunteering, Shanda loves to spend time with her rescue dog and cat, Tundra, and Raven.
