Staff and Advisory

Carol Fraley - Administrative Assistant

Carol brings many years of office administration and volunteer work and is excited about using her skills for CVAR operations. Carol spent summers on Grandma's hay and dairy farm loving the smell of fresh turned hay and being in the barn for the five a.m. milking. The farm taught her to value and respect dirt - that you don't put anything in the earth or water you don't want to eat.
When not at work Carol grows flowers, meditates, reads, and plays with her Yorkie companions.

Chance Horton - Animal Care and Project Assistant

Chance grew up in rural Texas spending much of his youth working in hayfields with sheep, goats, cows, and dogs. After spending his college and young adult years in busy Austin, his desire to return to a rural lifestyle led him to the Olympic Peninsula. Placing an emphasis on respect and appreciation of nature and all animals made volunteering at Center Valley Animal Rescue a natural fit. Chance is excited to offer any beneficial sweat or insight into an important and needed community service.
When not at the ranch Chance is rarely separate from his rescue dog and partner, Shade. He also works seasonally as a tour guide with Kayak Brinnon, doing bio-ecological kayak tours on the Hood Canal, as well as the Duckabush Mushrooms farm in Brinnon.
