Angie Lombardi | In Service to the VBSPCA for 9 Years
As a lifelong animal lover, Angie Lombardi began volunteering at the Virginia Beach SPCA over a decade ago. Once she learned more about the organization, she jumped at the chance to serve on the Board of Directors. “I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of the pets and be their voice,” said Lombardi. Nine years later, she remains an engaged member of the board. “The VBSPCA can’t take care of these sweet souls without support from the community it serves.”
Lombardi provides the VBSPCA with expertise in marketing. She has 20 years of experience in marketing and sales, including her current role as Vice President of Marketing at The Franklin Johnston Group. In addition to her service to the VBSPCA, Lombardi volunteers her time on the board of the Virginia Apartment Management Association.
While she connects very closely with the VBSPCA’s overall mission, Lombardi is most passionate about the level of compassion provided to both the animals and their families. “Seeing how the team works with family members who need to relinquish their pets, partnering with other animal welfare organizations and rural shelters that need more support – the love and care that is put into the animals that end up at the shelter is remarkable.”
Lombardi focuses on getting the word out about the many ways the community can support the VBSPCA. “Adopt, foster, donate (money or supplies), attend events, sign up to be a volunteer, share our stories on social media… It’s truly amazing how much goes on within the shelter and clinic and how many animals are cared for every single day.”
Dedicated individuals like Lombardi ensure the VBSPCA can continue working towards its mission of ending animal homelessness. We are grateful for everything she does to help our animals!
