Lakeside's Courtney Smith Celebrates 1 Year Anniversary of Animal Rescue

Lakeside Group’s Courtney Smith has always been a passionate animal advocate. She had volunteered with other groups for over 8 years and had been involved in all aspects of rescue- from critical care to fostering to fundraising to bookkeeping and everything in between! Her and two fellow animal rescue lovers were inspired to start their own rescue when they discovered Betty Davis, a Pit Bull used as a bait dog in a dog fighting ring. After several local rescues refused to take in Betty, they decided it was the perfect time to start Voices in the Dark Animal Rescue. In August of 2013, they filed paperwork and officially incorporated the rescue.


This past August, Voices celebrated their one year anniversary. It was a black-tie dinner celebrated in the primate exhibit at the Cleveland Metroparks zoo. The night was filled with music, dancing and silent auctions. They even had a surprise guest, Cleveland’s very own, Dick Goddard, from Fox8 News!
