Carole Feeny, Co-Founder
Carole is Co-Founder of Project Blue Collar. She is a lifelong animal lover and rescuer. Although her career path was always in Business Development, the majority of her career with American Express, she always spent her spare time working with animals. She has studied conservation around the world and travels to Africa frequently as a “voluntourist.” She is also a foster mom for Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP) and has fostered hundreds of pups. So many that she calls her place the PBC Puppy Hostel. She finally decided that she needed to turn her passion into a full-time job and launched PBC in 2012. Carole has many talents, but finding the perfect home for the many rescues she fosters, is perhaps her greatest one. Ask any of her friends, both two legged and four legged and they will tell you that it was Carole who helped them find each other. Carole holds a B.S. from Eastern Kentucky University.
