“Most people don't realize that more than 50% of all pets taken to shelters are killed there. After a friend's death, the family sent her pet to a high-kill shelter because they thought it was safe. I realized then that there was no service that rehomed pets when an owner moves and can't take their pet, or when an illness or death mean the pet no longer has a home. That’s when the idea of PetNet came to me.”

Brenda Collier, PetNet President

Before co-founding PetNet, Brenda Collier spent 35 years as a business lawyer in her own firm CollierLaw advising entrepreneurs. Her passion is animal welfare law. Her mission is to ensure companion animals have homes if an unexpected life event happens to their owner. As a lawyer, Brenda has worked with animal rescue organizations, the City of Austin,Texas and other political organizations providing legal expertise to improve the lives of companion animals. Brenda was a member of the Austin Pets Alive legal team that saved the life of Neville, a dog wrongfully designated as "dangerous" by a court and sentenced to die. In late 2015, Brenda co-founded a non-profit organization called Animal Association of Texas, which works to protect vulnerable animals in the State of Texas through legislative action. In 2016 Brenda Collier, her husband Roger Collier and their son and daughter-in-law, Rob and Mary Mockley, co-founded PetNet.
