Director Valerie Pratt Owens Receives Gleason Grant for Big Dog Ranch Rescue Inc.

Please join us in congratulating Valerie Pratt Owens, Director for Bright Horizons at Abacoa, for being honored with a Gleason Grant. Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Inc. will receive a check for $250 in her name. Valerie walks, washes and feeds dogs while they wait for their forever families to come get them. She brings dogs to adoption events to help local families see the importance of adopting shelter dogs. She also brings dogs to fundraising events to increase the awareness and funding of Big Dog Ranch so that they can continue to rescue and care for dogs of all sizes.

Our special thanks to Diane Trister Dodge, Founder of Teaching Strategies, a member of the Bright Horizons Education Advisory Board and a friend of the Foundation. Her generous donation in honor of retired Foundation President, Dave Gleason, supports the Gleason Grant Program.
