Painter named new director of Ark

LAGRANGE — Yancey Painter is the new director of Ark Animal Sanctuary in LaGrange.

Working with and for dogs most of her life, Painter joins the staff from a local pet store as the manager for the grooming department.

“I have not seen such passionate people when it comes to helping animals as I have seen at Ark,” Painter said. “This is what drew me to the job. I want to work with those people who have the same desire and passion I have. Making life better for an animal, to give it a second chance is a win-win situation for both dog and owner. Ark has gone so far in such a short time it will be interesting to see how much further we can all go together.”

Painter hopes to educate on the importance of spaying, neutering and dog ownership.

“Any change for the positive is a good change,” she said. “If I reach only one person that one person will reach another and so on. Ark gives animals a chance that would never have happened for them.”
