Meet the Interviewer!

Chris Roy is a technology professional in his day job. He is also the creator of Doobert and founder of the Animal Rescue Professionals Association.

Doobert.com is an online technology platform for animal rescues and shelters that helps to find and connect with other organizations, submit transport requests, manage foster programs and so much more! While Doobert is the technology arm, Chris’s mission for the ARPA is that it will bring education, transparency and certification to the animal welfare industry.

Doobert can be explained as a combination of Match.com and Uber. The idea is to bring volunteers and organizations together to save animals. We encourage you to sign up & help animals in YOUR community! Here’s a short 2-minute video to learn more about Doobert.
