Rescue and Marketing Coordinator at Georgetown Animal Shelter
Jessica Pierce has been working at the Georgetown Animal Shelter for over 5 years. She started off as a part-time receptionist in 2012. In 2013, she became a full-time receptionist and was asked to be the shelter’s Spokesperson and Rescue Coordinator. She founded the Unique Breed Club in 2013 where she created unique dog breeds for the newspaper to promote adoption and emphasize that every dog is an individual. Jessica has been a board member of the Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter since 2013 and served as Secretary from 2014-2016.
In 2015, Jessica was promoted to Marketing Coordinator. She currently manages the shelter’s social media platforms, press releases, and public relations. She designs promotional graphics and materials for shelter specials, adoption events, and fundraising events. Jessica builds and maintains positive relationships with rescue and adoption partners. Jessica manages and transports shelter cats for adoption to the PetSmart in Georgetown and trains volunteers. As rescue coordinator, she feels that it is her job to see rescue through and many times, Jessica herself is the person transporting animals to the safety of different rescue groups on her days off.
Jessica has a passion for senior and geriatric animals. She owns a 17 year old Blue Heeler named Little Bit, a 13 year old Shepherd mix named Sargent, and an 11 year old Spaniel mix named Alfie. She is also owned by 2 cats (because you don’t own cats…they own you). When she’s not at work, Jessica is likely spending time with her husband and pets or playing Ultimate Frisbee.
