Who We Are

Tim Yeaglin, Great Plains strategist

Born in Illinois, Tim Yeaglin found himself living in Indiana and Iowa before permanently settling down in Kansas. 

Tim's decade-long journey into animal welfare began by volunteering his master photographer skills to take pictures of the adoptable cats and dogs at various Kansas City area animal shelters. His love for shelters and their work led him to take a marketing position at a local shelter.  He became the director of operations at a fledgling shelter and helped restructure it one department at a time. 

Tim is particularly good at teaching shelter dogs household manners for their adoptive homes. He is passionate about reducing the fear, anxiety and stress of all animals and loves to strengthen the human-animal bond.
