  Roxanne Harvey - Founder/CEO Founder/CEO - Roxanne Harvey

Roxanne is the founder of Freedom’s Last Chance.  She has been involved in animal rescue most of her life. She has saved untold numbers of animals around Franklin County.  She also provides pet food for those people having economic challenges that find themselves unable to provide food for their pets.  She is an avid proponent of spaying and neutering pets. She believes, "All animals have a right to life…free from harm, fear, and abuse."  She provides a Sanctuary for her animals that are not adopted. The animals roam her yard during the day and retire to their comfy homes at dark.  It is truly an animal paradise. The history as to How We Became Freedom's Last Chance is very heart warming and will give you more insight into Roxanne's heart and what motivated her to undertake this endeavor.
