Our Story



Hi, I’m Sarah, the founder and CEO of LoveAnimals.org.

My passion in life has always been to help animals and prevent their suffering. I wasn’t passionate about solving one issue or helping one particular species. I wanted to help all animals on a grand scale, by doing something that could move the needle in the right direction for animals everywhere.

I began my career as an attorney in the UK, with the hope that I could impact animal welfare through the law. I realized however that the law was not enough - I wanted to do something more proactive that would help animals right now. Upon moving to the U.S in 2008 (my husband Scott is Colorado born and bred), I began working as the Program Officer for the Animal Assistance Foundation, one of the largest foundations exclusively funding animal welfare initiatives in America. For three and a half years I oversaw the charitable distribution of $1.2 million annually. $1.2 million sounds like a lot of money, but it was a drop in the bucket. I saw hard working non-profits doing fantastic work to help animals every day but they all needed access to more resources.

When I began learning about websites like DonorsChoose.org and Kiva.org, a friend and I asked the obvious question - why is there no website like this for animal welfare and wildlife conservation? And so Love Animals was born. After months of research and hard work we incorporated a non-profit in January 2012 and help our first board meeting. Next came more hard work – convincing the world that we needed LoveAnimals.org AND the money to get it off the ground. We were joined by many people who helped us raise enough to build the website and organization. In August 2012 software development began. The rest is…well…you’re on our website so you can see the rest! LoveAnimals.org was launched in Spring 2013. Check out our launch press release.

Through Love Animals I can fulfill my personal life's mission to have real impact to improve the lives of animals everywhere. Please consider joining me in this mission - follow our progress as we launch this new non-profit, tell your friends about LoveAnimals.org and please consider making a donation to help us grow.

Thank you
Sarah

Jon Patch

Graduated from Penn State University in 1983 and landed my first broadcasting job at the flagship station to SUN Radio Network in St. Petersburg, FL as a producer of talk radio. In 3 months advanced to a network producer, then on air as a national eventually local weather reporter for the Tampa Bay area. Held a position in management as a trainer to new hosts and producers and later Affiliate Relations Manager, eventually in 1990 started hosting, Talkin' Pets. Left SUN radio several years later and worked with USA Radio Networks for 1 year. I worked with Business TalkRadio & Lifestyle TalkRadio Networks for19 years under the title of V.P. Affiliate Relations and Programming, later worked with Genesis Communications until starting a new network ATRN.  Currently working with GAB Radio Network and with Josh Leng at Talk Media Network.  I am still hosting the largest and longest running pet radio and internet show in the country, Talkin' Pets, for the past 29 years... My one true passion in life is to help to educate the world through interviews with celebrities like Betty White, Tippi Hedren, Bob Barker, Linda Blair and others, authors, foundations and organizations like the ASPCA, LCA, HSUS, AHA, WSPA on the ways to make this world a better place for all animals and mankind whom all share this very fragile and mysterious planet called earth. This is the only home we have so we all need to learn how to share and maintain it so that life for us all continues and evolves forever...
