Keri Goldman - President & Founder

Paws 4 A Cure was created in memory of my Chow Chow; Nikko who lost his battle with cancer in 2007.

"When Nikko was diagnosed with cancer there were not any organizations out there available to me for assistance with his veterinary care. I sold my personal belongings, ate from food banks and went without so that Nikko could have multiple surgeries and follow-up veterinary care over a 5 year period of his cancer that returned several times. After Nikko received his angel wings, I knew what I had to do, help others facing the same situation. No animal should go without veterinary care because their parent cannot afford it. Being able to re-focus my attention on assisting other pet parents in need of veterinary care has helped me through the tremendous grief I feel of Nikko's passing and Chee as well. They will forever live on in my heart and through the Paws 4 A Cure dogs and cats that we are able to help. This is all for you"

Keri does ALL of the daily administrative activities. She volunteers all of her time on Paws 4 A Cure when not at her paying job. Paws 4 A Cure is a labor of love for Keri. She is determined to make a positive difference in this world. "Making a difference, one paw at a time".

Dave Maldonado - Vice President

Dave has been volunteering since 2011 at events and became the Paws 4 A Cure Vice President in 2014. He is the dad to Curtis, a rescued Pit Bull, and cat; Brady. In October 2013, Dave’s Pit Bull; Patches received her angel wings and went to the Rainbow Bridge. 

"It's all about keeping our pets healthy and in the home. Without organizations like Paws 4 A Cure many would have to give up their pets due to medical expenses and that to me is unacceptable."

Dave volunteers at events when he is able to.

Debbie Bresnahan - Secretary

Debbie has been a Paws 4 A Cure volunteer since 2008. Debbie's beloved dog Dutchess lost her battle with cancer in 2007 and Griffin in 2014. Debbie is the proud mom to her mixed breed, Pedey. 

"I originally got involved with Paws 4 A Cure when my dog was diagnosed with cancer and they were helping pets with cancer. I am now involved because I am fortunate enough to be able to afford pet insurance for my dog and also have the means if anything happened to take care of him. This is something that could change at any time, and it is reassuring to know there is an organization that would be there to help if I needed to ask for it.'

Debbie volunteers at events when she is able to.

Joelle Corbridge - Treasurer

Joelle joined the Paws 4 A Cure board of directors in March of 2015. Joelle is a former Paws Recipient that has been helping with the Paws 4 A Cure taxes. Joelle is a great asset to Paws 4 A Cure. She is the loving mom to Rocky.

"Paws 4 A Cure helped save my Rocky's life. Being involved is a way to help give back to a wonderful organization!"

Joelle volunteers preparing the annual taxes for Paws 4 A Cure.

Cameron - Event Volunteer

"I started volunteering for Paws 4 A Cure because I wanted to get involved and spend some of my free time making a difference. I started out doing small tasks to help out whenever I had time during my school year or during the summer, because even offering a little help here and there can really help out. The more time I spent working with Keri and Paws 4 A Cure the more I noticed the impact this organization has to helping families in need and has driven me to continue to lend my support. The support that Paws 4 A Cure has given to families all across the country is amazing and makes me proud to be a volunteer."
