Cassie Millar

Assistant Director & Foster Coordinator

Cassie has been working for All Aboard since February of 2023. Her involvement in animal welfare has been a long time coming! Cassie had a heart for animals from a young age as most animal lovers do, but only broke into her passion in recent years, specifically during the pandemic. She thought, “Hey, if the world is gonna end, I need to be doing something important!” These days you can find her coordinating all of your foster needs and helping Madison and the crew make AAAR everything it can be! In her downtime Cassie loves to rollerskate & spend time with her two dogs, Calluna and Woody in the mountains. Cassie’s favorite part of working in animal rescue is helping the shy dogs come out of their shell and find their special someone!
