Animal Activist Re-emerges In New Role

One of DFW’s best-known animal-welfare activists has a new gig. Jonnie England has been named director of communications and animal advocacy for the Metroplex Animal Coalition. The position was funded by a grant from the Mitchell Family Foundation. England, who resigned in January as executive director of Operation Kindness, says her new role will include providing PR, marketing and development services to a variety of animal shelters and humane groups. She may be best known for her 2006 efforts on behalf of Mercy, a pit-bull mix that was stabbed and set on fire by its owner.

    Saw this on Readlarrypowell.com this morning. Good to see a champion of animal rights getting a high profile spot around here.

    She resigned after Russ Martin pulled her hair, kicked her and threaten to shoot her after not calling the SPCA regarding a dog.

  3. Don Powell says:

    Marcus obviously does not know Russ or Jonnie.

    While I’m sorry that she left OK, I’m glad she has what looks like a much better position with an organization that will appreciate her.
