Vice President and Treasurer
Anna L. Juarez, a lifelong lover of animals, moved to Las Cruces in 1983 after graduating from law school. She shares her home with a variety of dogs including fosters. Anna and her dog Apollo make public appearances and are part of the Royal Court at the Dona Ana Art Council's annual Renaissance Faire in November.
Both Anna and Apollo also have participated in Wild West re-enactments, the best having been in Tombstone, Arizona where Apollo appeared in costume as "Dog Holliday, gunslinger." Anna is also an animal transporter, able to take animals to Albuquerque, Carlsbad and even Benson, Arizona, where she often transfers the traveler to another transporter and says "Animals that would otherwise be euthanized can sometimes enjoy a wonderful life if they can just hitch a ride with a willing human that can help them reach their new home or the rescue that accepted them." Anna considers herself an "animal advocate" and, now that she no longer practices law, is looking at needed changes in our New Mexico statutes and will be advocating for much needed changes in legislation.
Casey Jobling, a retired social worker/teacher/ travel agent and her husband moved to Las Cruces four years ago. Since then, Casey has been involved in animal welfare issues in New Mexico and is an ardent lover of animals of all kinds. At home, she is a pack leader of four precious dogs and one adorable baby turtle.
