Your contribution to Paws & Think provides life-changing programs to people and dogs in need! Our donors ensure we can evaluate & register even more therapy teams and help at-risk youth learn life skills while finding shelter dogs their forever homes.

heatherHeather Zoellick is the Marketing and Business Development Senior Associate at INHP, the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership, a local organization in Indianapolis. With a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and recently earning the Master’s Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Indiana University, Heather has worked in the nonprofit sector for over 12 years. Her love of animals started as a young child when she took care of every dog in the neighborhood and volunteered her summers at the local animal barn! She now has two cats and a Belgian Shepherd Border Collie mix named Cooper, who she rescued in 2008. Cooper is considering being a therapy dog (he’s just so excited he can’t sit still about the idea!) But until then, Heather participates in the Youth Canine Program and is involved in additional program development and event planning with Paws and Think. She is also on the Board of Director’s for the Girl Scouts of Central Indiana and has been a volunteer with Komen and Outrun the Sun.

Originally from the Chicago area, Heather has been in Indianapolis for 18 years. In her spare time Heather enjoys running, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
