Abby Polek

In-Kind Donation & Sponsorship Coordinator

 

Abby Polek

Abby is a certified veterinary technician and a medical editor specializing in veterinary content. She is also a member of the Harcum College Veterinary Technology Advisory Board. In 2014 Abby was looking for an opportunity to do more for animals and found the perfect fit with Red Paw Emergency Relief Team. She first trained as a responder but soon became involved in transporting and reuniting pets with their owners, an experience she finds highly rewarding. In 2015 she became Red Paw’s In-Kind Donation & Sponsorship Coordinator, working with sites across the five-county area and New Jersey to collect donations of supplies for displaced pets.

Abby’s passion for animals extends to all species–she and her husband, Jim, had their property certified as a National Wildlife Federation Backyard Wildlife Habitat in 1996. They share their home with three cats, all rescues, including (Adorable) Dora, who was rescued from a residential fire by Red Paw in 2014.
