About Shelby Hoetker

Shelby Hoetker is the Foster Coordinator for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and is a mother of four kiddos, and married to her best friend Drew. She has worked in dog rescue for many years, and when she experienced cleft palate puppies for the first time, she came across Fuzzy Texan. Her goal is to break the stigma that clefties needed to be euthanized, and that they do not have a good quality of life. Growing up her younger sister had a cleft palate that required reconstruction surgery. Her son also has a hole in his palate that has required years of speech therapy. Clefties have a special place in her heart due to my life experiences nd we are glad to have her on board!
