Maleah Stringer is dedicated to the welfare of animals and to creating a society that understands that the way we treat animals is directly related to the way we treat people. She has launched award winning adoption programs, has been featured in national publications for her efforts, was awarded the Herald Bulletin "Person of the Year" in 2013 and voted the Best Civil Servant in the Herald Bulletin's Best of Madison County in 2019. An Indiana University alumna, Stringer has operated a personal training business since 1990 and has been a columnist since 2003. Her column, Animal Connection, has helped raise awareness in our community concerning the connection between animal abuse and human violence and encourages the community to treat animals with compassion. One of Stringer's proudest accomplishments is her work with the Indiana Department of Corrections and the development of programs including FIDO, Saving Max and the 9 Lives Cat Prison Program that save animals and help inmates give back to the community.
