Debi Tobin


Debi is originally from Spokane, Washington where she developed a love for animals at an early age and, as a child, always had one or more rescue kitties. After an unsuccessful attempt at becoming a rock star, she graduated from Eastern Washington University with a bachelor’s degree in professional accounting, which is pretty close to rock star.

In 2014, Debi was visiting a cousin in Spokane, who had just adopted a Chihuahua. It was all over at that point, and within a few months, Debi adopted a Chiweenie and within another few months adopted a Chihuahua to keep the first dog company. This is when Debi decided that she wanted to volunteer with a rescue organization and learned about FLPS. After meeting Luisa and seeing the sanctuary, Debi wanted to become part of the FLPS team and assist with the finance function.

Debi is a CPA with over 30 years of accounting experience. Outside the office, Debi spends her free time spoiling her dogs and cats, listening to music and working out.
