About Us:

Our founder, AnneMarie (Cinardo) Albaugh,  is a CPA and is originally from New York.  She has worked at both small firms and large firms such as Morgan Stanley, Freddie Mac, Navy Federal, and Prudential Securities. She spent 13 years on Wall Street in SEC Reporting, and after 9/11 brought down her office at 2 World Trade Center, she relocated to DC.  She spent another 10 years in Banking, Capital Markets and Real Estate and married a military man while there.  She moved with her husband to Georgia due to her husband's assignments where she has spent the last few years.  Once she saw the neglect and overpopulation in Georgia, she got involved in fighting dog neglect and cruelty starting as a foster, moving on to volunteer and then forming a non-profit in 2019.


Her expertise is in Finance, Research and Writing.  Her goal is to use facts to fight the preventable problem of pet overpopulation and its inevitable consequences of neglect, cruelty, suffering and unnecessary death of healthy homeless animals by spreading awareness of its devastating financial effects on communities.  GCAA feels that Georgia can prevent pet overpopulation and spend these much needed resources on education, public safety, and community health and welfare instead.
