Martha Kirk is one of the founders of Animal Rescue of Crosby County, and is passionate about animal welfare, having rescued and adopted three dogs of her own. She has three more dogs and one cat, plus houses two of her son's dogs. The dogs range in size from a miniature Dachshund to a massive Great Dane, and everything in-between! Martha serves as president for the organization and sees a big part of her job as an encourager for recruiting volunteers in all capacities to assist with animal welfare in Crosby County. Martha has a diverse past in that she has been an Assistant County Extension Agent in Lubbock County, lived in Saudi Arabia and authored a book, "Green Sands", taught reading and writing in Crosbyton and Idalou schools, worked at Texas Tech, but most importantly serves as Mom to three wonderful grown children, along with a son and daughter-in-law.
She currently assists her husband Terry on the farm and in their cow/calf operation, plus helps in their crop insurance business.

The whole family are big Red Raider fans!
As one of the founders of Animal Rescue of Crosby County, Sandy Adcock has been around dogs, cats and horses all her life. She has shown Champion Irish Wolfhounds, trained AKC Obedience Champion Collies and worked with therapy dogs.
She saw a need for Crosby County to have a respected Animal Rescue and the need to be able to work with the City and County Law Enforcement on cases regarding animal neglect and abuse. Sandy taught nearly 30 years in the Crosbyton school system and today is the Chief Juvenile probation officer for Crosby County. She lives with her husband Jack, and her beloved Yorkie, Minnie May and seven Texas Blue Lacy Dogs.
As a director, Sandy fulfills many needs of this organization including administering vaccinations to our rescue dogs and puppies as well as answering questions and messages on our social media pages among many other jobs.
