MEET OUR TEAM

The Arni Staff is a dedicated team of individuals with one thing in common – we all love animals!  Arni has no paid board or president or directors.  The only paid staff is our vet techs who work in the kennel and our thrift store managers.  It’s a difficult and dirty job, but we all love it and the animals make it all worth it!!

MEET OUR TEAM IN PERSON

NIKKI LINN

Nikki started the Arni Foundation almost 20 years ago as a tribute to her mom “Arni.”  20,000 animal rescues later, she still does weekly rescues.  When not working with the animals, Nikki is likely to be found paddle boarding or mountain biking and spending time outdoors.
