This weekend I had the pleasure of speaking with Chris Harris, shelter director of the Animal Adoption Center. The Animal Adoption Center, or AAC, is a non-profit animal shelter in Lindenwold, NJ that rescues both dogs and cats. The AAC prides its self in being a no-kill shelter.

Working at the AAC is a dream job for Chris, who has had a strong love and passion for animals since he was a kid. After years of working for Fortune 500 companies, Chris quit his cozy corporate gig and decided to pursue his love of rescuing animals. After quitting his job, he began to work part time at a local animal shelter in Phoenix, AZ. Chris then made his way to New Jersey and joined the AAC family in February, 2015.

Chris loves animals of all kind, but he especially has a strong love for bully breeds. Although the breed has often been misunderstood, Chris has found them to be a sweet and lovable breed.

During my interview with Chris, he discusses many things such as his personal journey, the challenges of running an animal rescue, and his experience with pit bulls.
