Maddie's Candid Conversation with Ed Jamison 

12-19-2022 01:04 PM

Ed's philosophy of helping animals by helping people - and how important it is for leaders to be intentional and inclusive - was once an eye-opener to many in the field of animal welfare.

With a history of providing lifesaving care for homeless pets since 1976, Ed’s goal is to impact the most vulnerable shelter animals and that often includes the people who care for them.  Currently CEO of Operation Kindness, a lifesaving non-profit animal shelter in Carrollton, TX, Ed had previously served as the Director of Dallas Animal Services (DAS) where he was tasked with increasing public safety by getting loose animals off the streets, while also increasing positive outcomes once in the shelter. To accomplish that, Ed led a staff of more than 200 employees, maximized the relationships with the rescue community, rebuilt the volunteer base, and instituted new, progressive programming. For him and his team it was all about helping create a community where all people and animals are safe, treated with respect, and have access to the resources needed to thrive.
