Karen Menczer loves animals. While traveling abroad as part of her work in international development, she was distressed by the situation for animals. She was also heartened by animal welfare advocates in poor countries doing heroic work on shoestring budgets. Upon returning to the U.S., Karen started Animal Kind International (AKI). AKI raises awareness and funds. The group also collects supplies for animal welfare advocates in poor countries. Karen will tell us why she feels the organization is needed.
