Public Relations Coordinator

Marissa DeGroot

Marissa has served as the Public Relations Coordinator since 2015, but she has been an animal lover all her life. She was raised alongside a herd of dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, goats, reptiles, birds and a horse, which is why she is comfortable bringing on all manner of critters to local television and radio pet segments.

In addition to being the DCHS 'pet lady,' Marissa is the shelter contact for any questions or comments on the website and social media. She is also the media contact for the shelter.
