Claire LoManto, Co-Founder, with dog

Claire LoManto


Claire LoManto graduated with a degree in Communication Studies from Bloomsburg University.

Shortly after graduating, Claire started her career as a Marketing Consultant/Client Support Rep at Harte-Hanks: The Agency Inside, where she gained marketing skills and hands-on project management experience.

Although she was successful at her marketing career, she decided to leave this role to follow her passion for animal welfare and took on a volunteer role at an animal shelter in Thailand. In this role, she worked alongside vet techs, and supported the organization’s marketing efforts.

Upon returning home, Claire started a job as the Volunteer & Community Programs Coordinator at Women’s Humane Society (WHS) animal shelter.  Her responsibilities varied day-to-day, but included educating the public, community outreach, marketing, recruiting and managing numerous volunteers.  While working at WHS, she met Lori Nanan and they worked closely together to further the shelter’s mission and enrich the lives of shelter dogs in their care.

Claire is now employed by Malena DeMartini, Inc. and has taken on digital marketing support and administrative duties to help in Malena’s efforts to treat separation anxiety in dogs.

Claire has a huge love of dogs, and has fostered several in the past few years, thus inspiring her continued efforts to support dogs & their people.  Her goal in life is to help dogs, owners & trainers, and to share the knowledge she has gained from her experience.
