Angie Friers

 

As Executive Director of the SPCA of Brevard, Angie has been involved with animal rescue and welfare for over a decade.  She firmly believes that we can become a “no-kill” nation with the community’s help and she chose to participate in “Dancing For The Space Coast” to promote what the SPCA does on a daily basis; which is save thousands of homeless animals as the largest no-kill animal welfare organization in Brevard County.  Angie is also a supporter of many other charities throughout this county, including the three amazing ones that she’s raising money for with this great event!

Angie is married to Brian, who is an Osceola County Firefighter/Paramedic, and they are the proud parents to four amazing boxers, Essie, Cabo, Nash and Grady, all who were adopted from local boxer rescues.  Two of her dogs are deaf and she takes a special interest in attending many local school functions and rescue events to speak of the importance and rewards of adopting a special needs dog. 

In Angie’s spare time she runs and is training for her third half-marathon this fall.
