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 a FREE online software platform for animal rescues and shelters to find partners, and do many types of transports. So while Doobert is the technology arm, Chris’s mission for the ARPA is that it can help bring education 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, by the volunteers driving/flying them from high-kill shelters to no-kill organizations. We encourage you to sign up (it’s FREE) & help animals in your community!

Here’s a short 2-minute video to learn more about Doobert.
