About Our Chapter

This chapter serves Veterans in Georgia.

Meet Chapter Director Barbara Blair
Barbara is originally from Ohio but has called Atlanta home since the 1980s. She shared her Alpharetta home with her two Labradors, Sam and Annie before they all relocated to Midtown.

She became involved with animal rescue when she fostered dogs for a local Labrador rescue group. After picking the dogs up at the shelter and giving them love and care, she found it incredibly rewarding to watch them become more comfortable and happy. Barbara took the process of finding the right home for each dog just as seriously as she took their care. Fostering also opened her eyes to the number of wonderful dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages that were waiting in Atlanta’s shelters for adoption, love and a second chance.

Since then, Barbara has supported several animal rescue groups in and around Atlanta, as well as national organizations such as the HSUS, ASPCA and PETA. She first became aware of Pets for Vets after hearing about the organization on NPR (WABE in Atlanta). She was immediately drawn to Pets for Vets because it combined two areas she is passionate about: animal rescue and helping Veterans to thank them for their tremendous service to our country.

When she learned there wasn’t a Georgia chapter of Pets for Vets, she jumped at the chance to start one. Barbara is using her 25 years of experience in sales and marketing and national account management to build Pets for Vets Georgia.
