MEET THE TEAM
Founder and Head Honcho - Dog whisperer and manager of reminders
Shannon was a model, turned conservationist, environmentalist and humanitarian from Queensland Australia. Shannon started her journey as The Hottes Rescue in 2017, specialising in the rescue of abandoned puppy litters and finding their forever homes. In 2019 she decided to take things a step further. After a re-brand into The Hottes Foundation, Shannon now has an incredible team and with their paths aligned, they have dedicated their lives to providing the world with the education, inspiration and motivation it needs to create a healthy and sustainable future.
Co-founder and Director of happiness also flexing as an ecologist
From a very young age Abigail knew that her life would involve helping this planet and all who live on it. Her main passion is the conservation and preservation of the ocean and all of its inhabitants. After meeting Shannon and Kate in 2019 there was so doubt that joining the Hottes Foundation was the next step on her journey, bringing her knowledge and passion of the ocean and marine life to the organisation. Currently studying Maine biology Abigail is wanting to complete her masters degree. With all of this behind her she has already set out to bring her passion, knowledge and The Hottes Organisation to many places around the world, and has already got plans on where to go and what to do next.
RIKKI LEE FIELDEN
Super mum and wildlife extraordinaire
Rikki’s love of animals has always been apparent. One of her mothers favourite stories is about watching her sitting at the front door for hours one day, herding out the lines of ants so they didn’t make it to the kitchen to be killed by her dad. Her wildlife caring began after finding a Joey in the pouch of his dead mother while living in Western Australia. She ended up hand raising two joeys, and once she moved back to Queensland began volunteering with a local group rescuing everything from birds, to possums, roos, and even a koala. She does all of this while working part time, raising 3 children, 3 dogs and a cat!
