Susan joined GRRA after moving from the northeast in 2006, where she was a volunteer with DVGRR. She started doing home checks and fostering. Roux was her first GRRA adoption "foster failure", later to be followed by Teddy and now Bradshaw. Bradshaw and Susan are a registered team with the Alliance of Therapy Dogs thru CAREing Paws. To date Susan has fostered over 40 dogs for GRRA. She has also worked on the annual GRRA "Rescue Romp" celebration. Susan took on the role of Adoption Day Coordinator in 2008 and continues to enjoy meeting the GRRA foster dogs and the potential adopters each month. She was appointed as Secretary for GRRA in 2022 with the death of the secretary and was elected to the board as secretary for 2023.
