Laura Honeycutt

Laura Honeycutt

Dog Program Manager

Laura grew up in Wake Forest, NC, and her first love (other than her parents and sister) was her pet dachshund, Kappy. Even now, at 29, she asks if she can pet every dog she sees. Laura studied Economics & Entrepreneurship at UNC-Wilmington, then served in the Peace Corps in Nicaragua as a Small Business Volunteer. It was there that she started rescuing dogs after seeing so many street dogs in need. Laura adopted 4 dogs while living in Nicaragua and brought home 10 foster dogs when her service was over in 2014.

After struggling to find good homes for her fosters, she joined Franklin County Humane Society, who took in all 10 and found forever homes for them. Since then, Laura has fostered for FCHS and, in 2015, became Dog Team Leader. While fostering dogs, she worked as a bi-lingual Employment Specialist at the U.S. Committee for Refugees & Immigrants.

Since jumping head first into rescue, she’s dreamed of finding a full-time job dedicated to saving dogs and is ecstatic that her dream has come true with Second Chance!
