Janet Peppler is the owner of The Peppler Agency, an independent insurance agency located in Harper Woods, Michigan. Her experience with hands on daily business activity puts Ms Peppler in the productive role as President of Detroit Dog Rescue, given her knowledge of running a successful business and her compassion for dogs. The agency’s mascot, “Miley” can be found at work on a daily basis.
As Detroit Dog Rescue’s Executive Director, Kristina worked closely with Detroit Mayor, Mike Duggan’s administration to create Detroit’s first animal welfare committee. This partnership resulted in new leadership and policies for the city’s municipal animal shelter. Detroit now works harder to find alternatives to euthanasia due to overpopulation, while focusing on public safety. Kristina has been a part of several documentaries, news stories, and reality shows highlighting Detroit’s stray dog epidemic and she has raised millions of dollars to fund initiatives that support animals, especially ones who are victims of violent crimes.
In the past, Kristina has been the recipient of the Mackinac Humanitarian Award, Beaumont Hospital’s President Award for Community Giving, and has been named WDVD’s “Woman of the Year” for her ability to create solutions in underserved communities.
