Dogs have always been an important part of the life of Micki Lockhart, founder of the Lockhart Foundation.  The activities she participated in with her dogs gave her many hours of pleasure, and she enjoyed the unconditional love a pet can give.

Micki’s desire was to help animal related organizations provide needed services in the community to ensure people are able to keep their pet during bad times rather than give them up.

Educating the public as to the benefits, as well as the responsibilities of pet ownership is an important part of the Lockhart Foundation.

They were instrumental in raising the funds and building a state-of-the art animal shelter in Ardmore, Oklahoma.  Their tireless efforts to education the public in the beneficial relationship animals can provide led them to helping form A New Leash On Life, Inc. We are forever grateful for their encouragement and support.
