Jonathan Gootgarts 


Hey! My name is Jonathan and I am a lover of all things animals. I was employed as a veterinary assistant at Upper Bathurst Animal Clinic and am currently studying veterinary medicine at the Ontario Veterinary College. Working at a vet clinic, I was exposed to the many requirements of owning a pet. I aspire to make the adoption process for future pet owners smoother through contributions to various animal shelters and rescues in the GTA.

Executive Leader

Hi! My name is Dylan Keith and I am the executive leader of this organization. I am a huge lover of animals and have worked with animals for the past 6+ years in animal clinics and on farms. I also grew up with a Coton de Tulear, which interestingly enough originated in Madagascar. I aspire to become a veterinarian in the future and I look forward to helping out animal shelters and rescues!

Hey! My name is Jo and I am a medical school student at McGill University. Outside of school and playing sports with my friends, a passion of mine is caring for and helping animals. I love being able to contribute to Fur Your Friends Foundation's mission of making pet supplies accessible to shelters and rescues who need them!
