Our Board Members

PAWS is an entirely volunteer-run organization and our dedicated board is passionate about supporting the most vulnerable members of our community, so that people and pets may stay safe and healthy together.



Linda Armstrong

President and Board Chair

I’m thrilled to be part of an amazing PAWS team who all care so much for animal companions and the people who love them.

I am retired from business and live in London Ontario with my husband Paul and our pets.

Pets are an essential part of my life and I’m motivated to allow all people, regardless of income or circumstances, to have access to affordable veterinary care for their much-loved furry friends.
