By passion, she founded All About Animals Rescue (AAAR) in 2005. The organization has gone from primarily adopting out animals, from over 300 a year, to opening up a full time spay/neuter clinic in 2008. The operational budget has grown from $80 thousand annually to currently over $2.5 million; reaching more than 60,000 cats and dogs each year with care.
Amber transitioned the board from a working board to a strategic board and established collaborative relationships with local communities, governments and rescues in the interest of furthering animal welfare. She has successfully obtained grants in the tune of over $1 million dollars and developed fund raising and strategic plans for the organization. She has also created a pet food pantry, Spay Michigan; a Statewide toll free hotline modeled after SPAY/USA and a TNR program that is the first of its kind in Michigan.
