Senior Director, Animal Rescue Team
Ann Chynoweth has worked in the animal protection field for over 20 years.
As senior director of the Animal Rescue Team (and formerly of the Animal Cruelty and Fighting campaign) for The HSUS, her leadership has helped secure passage and enforcement of a long list of important animal protection laws.
Under her oversight, The HSUS has rescued thousands of animals from situations of illegal animal cruelty and fighting and, equally importantly, has secured successful prosecutions in these cases, many of them groundbreaking.
Chynoweth’s comprehensive approach to tackling the epidemic of animal abuse in the U.S. has constructed the nation's most sophisticated, all-encompassing program to assist law enforcement in enforcing animal cruelty laws.
