Trish Smith, Adoption Facilitator

Trish grew up in small Tennessee towns, spending childhood days outside riding her bike, climbing trees, and playing sports. She has had dogs and cats all her life, even helping her mother care for a pregnant stray dog at the young age of 5. Six years ago she was able to fulfill a childhood dream of owning a horse, which she describes as “one of the best experiences of my life”.

Trish worked for 20 years in the investment business, and then in the home building business for 3 years. She had been searching for the next journey in her life, and knew that had to involve animals. She has a heart for helping dogs that have had less than a perfect life and need an advocate.  Rescue work was a great fit. Trish has been a supporter of Agape since it started and had watched it grow, until in 2013 she felt the calling to be a part of the process as a volunteer. She has done countless adoptions of all sorts to wonderful families and has loved the experience! Trish looks forward to putting in rescue work alongside Agape for years to come.
