OUR BOARD MEMBERS
Annette Hernandez founded Lost and Found Pets of Grant County, WA in 2014. She has rescued animals her entire life and has made rescue a life-long mission. She is the current board President, pet foster, and active rescuer. To her, pets are more than a possession, they are family; so a top priority for her is getting lost pets home safely.
Angie Albertson Bicondova
Vice President and Secretary extraordinaire. Angie is also one of the friendly voices on the phone checking references and speaking to potential adopters, as well as serving as a rescuer and foster parent. Having a bad day? She's your gal - she always has a smile to provide and an inspiration to tweak your heart. Along with being the co-Adoption Coordinator, she is also the co-grant researcher, and one of the Foster Coordinators.
Raised caring for farm animals and numerous pets, Erika has been an animal lover her entire life. She has been involved with animal rescues since childhood, which helped inspire her to create and run the Moses Lake Police Department’s Lost & Found Pets Facebook page. Fostering and rescuing has become a way of life for Erika, her husband, their children, as well as their two dogs, aka “canine foster sisters.” Cultivating in her children compassion for God’s creatures is imperative to her. Erika is the co-Adoption Coordinator, Website Coordinator, one of our Foster Coordinators and is the main grant researcher for the group as well.
Jose has always loved animals, so when his wife started LAFPOGCW in 2014, he was not only happy to help, but he was a huge support of the cause. He finds it fun and very rewarding to save these lost and found critters. Jose is truly a kind soul, so it is no surprise that he has a soft place in his heart for animals. He and Annette always make a great duo during their rescue missions, even when she drags him out of bed in the middle of the night to do so!
Kailyn has been rescuing animals of all kinds since she was a young girl. She believes that every animal deserves an advocate of their own and she doesn't hesitate to take on that role. Even with many animals of her own, she always has room to add a rescue/foster to her pack. Kailyn serves as a Registered Nurse in our community and her love for medicine and care giving play an important part in our organization. As our Medical Coordinator, she oversees, keeps record of and administers necessary vaccinations, microchips and medications that each of our rescues require. She also serves as Treasurer and one of our Foster Coordinators.
Lori is the owner and head canine behavior specialist for Fetch Please Dog Training in Moses Lake. Her training journey began with volunteer behavior modification to help shelter dogs become more adoptable, so joining the LAFPOGCW board and fostering was only natural. As a behavior specialist and a foster mom, Lori hopes to return to her roots and help our foster dogs become their best selves for their new fur-ever families.
Debbie has been involved with LAFPOGCW for years, serving as a volunteer and transitioning into the role as board member. She serves as our Secondary Treasurer.
