Holly Davis is originally from Orange County, CA. She moved to North Carolina in 2015 with her daughter and husband. After seeing a dog chained to a tree in early April of that year, she started Holly'z Hope with the goal to unchain dogs in her community. Over the last 4 years she has successfully lobbied to change laws making it illegal to chain a dog. Holly'z Hope has grown from a handful of volunteers to over 500, raised funds needed to build fences, provide wellness vet care, educate dog owners and the public.
She has seen first hand the positive impact of giving to others with grace and understanding has on a community. Holly is forever grateful for the volunteers who have dedicated their time to making Holly'z Hope an organization she is proud to be a part of.
Karen Walden, an upstate NY native, joined Holly'z Hope because of her love for animals and desire to make a positive change in her community. She says her involvement has brought so many wonderful people into her life . Karen's memorable moments are seeing the look of joy and sometimes tears in the eyes of the owners as we released the pups into the fences.
Pam Alexander joined Holly’z Hope in 2016 to share her love of volunteering and helping dogs in the community. She is a core team member and enjoys working with other volunteers coaching them on how to build fences. She is currently employed by Ingersoll Rand.
