Meet Marilyn!

The Pet Project is 100% volunteer-run. Our administrative volunteers help get our AniMeal deliveries ready, call our patrons to let them know it’s their pickup week and more!

Meet Marilyn Cornelius:

Area of Des Moines:
I live in NW Des Moines

What’s your day job/what do you do outside of The Pet Project?
I am retired from Better Homes & Gardens Test Kitchen. I spend my time training my dogs for obedience shows, quilting and cross-stitching.

How many and what kind of pets do you have?
I have a two and a half year old Muggle, Sheltie and 11 year old Denali, a Keeshond.

What made you want to get involved with The Pet Project?
Three years ago, Carole invited me to help decorate the tree for Kristkindlmarket. I’ve been here ever since!

Thank you, Marilyn, for all that you do to support The Pet Project!
