New Animal Care Manager at BENCHSbenchsmedia
In mid-January, the Board successfully filled the Animal Care Manager position with Lauren Wensmann. Lauren has volunteered with different rescue organizations, providing transportation, foster coordination and fostering cats and kittens. Lauren graduated from University of Minnesota-Crookston with a degree in Animal Science. She has experience with different humane societies and also rescue organizations.
Lauren likes to spend her spare time with her fiance Tanner and their friends. They have two rescue dogs (Rascal and Mylo) and two cats (Thor and Leo) in their family. Lauren loves gardening even though she might not always have the best results, but she says she tries, but the green thumb might not be green all the way!
Lauren’s favorite inspirational quote is “ You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” Lauren believes that you can always reroute your path as long as you put the time and effort into it. The animals she sees everyday are the biggest motivation that keeps her going. The moment that a shy dog or cat starts to come out of their shell and wants attention gives her the biggest smile!
