Jami Hulsman

Jami Hulsman came to Rescue for North Bay Beagles almost two years ago as a prospective adopter of “Clive” now known as Hank the Tank. Her husband and two daughters fell in love with our beagle/basset hound from Kentucky, and he is now a wonderful part of their family. Since then, Jami has worked on many aspects of our administrative and fundraising activities, and she continues to introduce new ideas to help our rescue continue to grow.


Dianne Snater, is currently the Human Resource Manager for a structural steel fabricating facility in Southern Minnesota. Her beagle rescue efforts began with social media; sharing and networking dogs in urgent need; those that were scheduled for euthanasia. It was during this first venue of rescue that Dianne met up with an exclusive group of individuals which included Pamela Rosenthal, and a working, rescuing relationship was formed. Dianne was able to secure the safety of sheltered beagles through rescue commitment, arranging vetting and their transportation to California. In January of 2016, Dianne began fostering for Rescue for North Bay Beagles and that year fostered a total of 45 beagles/hounds all of which were sent to California to find new homes. Dianne has her own pack of misfit canines that include 4 beagles, one chihuahua, one doxie, one shih tzu and one of an undetermined breed. Rescue is her passion, the range of which includes knowing the emotional trauma that an animal has had to endure, to the greatest joy when the dogs are being given a new chance at life….a good life, a deserving life!
