Anne Gurchick is a breast cancer survivor and a rescuer of Katrina Dogs. In the midst of her own battle with cancer she travelled to Louisiana to save some of the most forgotten and battered victims of Hurricane Katrina, her irrepressible spirit proves that saving oneself is often easiest done by saving another.


Anne Gurchick has been involved in animal welfare and rescue work for over ten years, having started in Austin, Texas. In 2004, shortly after selling her business, Anne decided to follow her dream and move to the mountains with the hope of working with animals. She relocated to Aspen, Colorado, and quickly became involved with Friends of the Aspen Animal Shelter (FAAS). Anne has served on the board of FAAS for over seven years and was appointed Director of the non-profit in 2009. Less than six months Anne, with her rescued dogs Max, Stryder, Haddie and Bella, after arriving in Aspen, she was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer and successfully battled the disease. FAAS kicked off an aggressive spay/neuter/rescue campaign in October 2007. Since that time, the campaign has resulted in the neutering of more than 7,000 dogs and cats in Colorado and beyond. In partnership with Seth Sachson, Director of the Aspen Animal Shelter, the non-profit has also rescued well over 1,000 dogs and cats off death row in shelters where they otherwise would be killed due to overcrowding.
