Bruce Foster

Bruce Foster is our Chairman of the Board. He has recently retired after a lucrative career as an entrepreneur. His expertise at creating a business and making it profitable is tantamount to making Mazie’s Mission successful. He currently owns a mixed breed dog he adopted from the pound, Josh, and could not imagine his life without a pet.
