Jill Angelo

Founder / Chief Dog Lover

Jill Angelo is a longtime animal welfare advocate with extensive experience working in an open-intake shelter, helping animals recover from injury, trauma, and abandonment. She saw firsthand how rescue services transformed the lives of countless animals in severe need. In 2016, Jill founded The Moon Dog Farm, a 501c3 U.S. non-profit that has rescued and nurtured numerous special-abled sanctuary dogs, fostered medical and hospice dogs, and placed hundreds of rescued guinea pigs and rabbits into adoptive homes. Accordingly, she spends many days in fur-ridden and muddy paw-printed clothes, loving every minute of it. Jill is also an Animal Chaplain dedicated to helping "Honor Animal Lives and Heal Human Hearts."
