In Memoriam: Janis Jacobs

October 3, 2012

This memorial is dedicated to the memory of Janis Jacobs who died on July 31, 2012. Jan had a great love of animals. Whenever she was out and would see an animal, she would immediately gravitate towards it, enjoy petting it and talking to its owner if he or she was around. Jan often house sat for the beloved animals of her friends, forming strong bonds of attachment with friends and animals alike.

Prior to her death, she began volunteering at the Amanda Foundation. She hated to see animals suffer and was glad that there was a place where they were safe and could thrive. Jan loved to walk the dogs whenever she could, but also pitched in wherever she was needed. Jan would be gladdened by any support offered to the Amanda Foundation in her memory.
