Noelle Viny-
Event Coordinator

Noelle is a retired high school educator having taught 32 years in the Davis School District. She always dreamed of creating an organization to help unsheltered pets after her retirement and this summer she found her way to Ruff Haven. She has loved dogs her whole life and the longest time without one was nine days in 2020.


Noelle has volunteered with many organizations over the years and has experience with event planning at HUCC, Holladay Preschool, and Utah Pride Center. She is looking forward to planning community events to raise money and awareness to the importance of keeping pets and their people together in the time of crisis.


She currently resides in Salt Lake City with her husband Alain and her two daughters, Mikayla and Olivia, who live close by. She is also mom to Tiki who was recently elected as the new Salt Lake County Animal Services Deputy Mayor.
