Shannon Strong is an Attorney at Law who is also a passionate, avid animal advocate. Shannon’s practice expertise is in Environmental Law, with experience also in Commercial Litigation and Family Law. Shannon has been a volunteer for many years with CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) where she has represented the best interests of abused and neglected children in the Texas court system, and also serves on the board of Saving the School Scholarship Fund for Reagan High School, an underprivileged high school in Austin, Texas.
Shannon lives in Austin, Texas with her daughter and her four rescued fur babies: Ryder (mustang), Bo, Boone and Jack (dogs). In her spare time, Shannon likes to volunteer/foster with Austin Pets Alive, spend time on the water (the lake or the beach), travel, or work at her ranch where she soon hopes to open an animal sanctuary. At the sanctuary, she intends to rescue mainly dogs and horses… and the occasional cat, chicken, pig, turtle, snake, rat, and/or you name it 🙂 Animal rescue is Shannon’s biggest passion in life. She strongly believes in protecting those souls that cannot defend themselves.
