Our People

Kristen Gottschalk

Executive Director

Kristen is one of the Co-Founders of Fetching Tails Foundation and is the Executive Director focusing on marketing, fundraising, and community outreach. She has been a dog lover her whole life, and is passionate about animal rescue. Some might say that she inherited that from her mother, who is also deeply involved with animal rescue, and is the President of Fetching Tails Foundation. Kristen has always dreamt about teaming up with her Mom in animal rescue, and was lucky enough to make her dream a reality.


Kristen enjoys spending time with her husband Chris and their three adopted retrievers, Wrigley, Oliver, and Norman. She also enjoys traveling, boating on the lake, completing house projects, and spending time with family and friends.

Fun Furry Fact

Kristen's favorite types of dog are Retrievers and pitbull types. She has adopted three retrievers, and primarily fosters older retrievers. These are two breeds that are highly found in shelters across the nation, often with high euthanasia rates as well, and so Kristen has always been passionate about saving these dogs.
