Jane Gaidecski - Director of Gratitude (Memorial and In-Kind Donations)

Jane’s passion for animals began at the age of 10 when she received her first puppy, a little black Chihuahua named Pepe.  Although she has had many different breeds of dogs over the years, her first love is the Chihuahua.  Jane works full-time as a legal assistant in Center City and has two grown children and two grandchildren that all love animals.  Hmmm wonder where they get that from?  Jane and her husband, John, own seven dogs, four of which were adopted from One Love.  She began fostering in March of 2016 and has fostered about 30 dogs.  She says, “It’s such a joy to see their personalities shine through with just a little love, a good meal and a soft bed,"  In her spare time, you can find her attending adoption events, helping out at fundraisers, walking dogs and walking more dogs... The neighbors think her regular job is “dog walker."
