Meet our Board of Directors

Vikki Smith
Founder / Executive Director
Kylar Kemp
Vice President
After a 24 year employement with Hewlett-Packard Co., My husband, myself, and our three dogs moved to Oklahoma for a  job relocation in June 2015.  Shortly after arriving, I realized the dire situation with the animal overpopulation and the methods of Euthanasia still legal and practiced every day here in our State (heart stick, gun shot, and gas chambers).  I decided someone needed to do something so I founded Fetch Fido A Flight and started doing what I could to make a difference in the lives of our precious shelter pets.  Fetch Fido A Flight is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Charity. 
As a Nurse and founder/director of Single Dog Seeking. I've been in rescue almost 7 years.  Starting with fostering and transporting for other rescues but kept thinking  there still aren't enough resources for all these animals, someone should do something.  Then I realized that someone was me. SSD has saved over 100 dogs from kill shelters in Oklahoma. Fetch Fido a Flight has helped us in saving those dogs and gave us an additional outlet.  FFAF makes a way for the dogs here when there are no other options and is the golden ticket for these animals.  At least a dozen of the dogs SDS pulled would be dead if it weren't for FFAF.

​Nicole Howard, CPA
I have worked in the accounting/finance industry for 24 years and have been a CPA for 17 years. I was also the volunteer Treasurer for a small non-profit for 6 years and currently volunteer for a cat rescue. I am excited to join Fetch Fido A Flight as the Treasurer because it combines two of my passions - animals and numbers! I'm proud to say that I am helping to save Oklahoma dogs' lives even though I live in California. 
I am currently the Medical Director for Obstetric Anesthesiology at Integris Baptist Medical Center.  I was also the Past President and am a current member of the Oklahoma Board of Medical Licensure and Supervision as well as the Past President of the Oklahoma Society of Anesthesiologists.  I am an instrument rated private pilot currently working on a commercial pilot rating as well as multi-engine rating.  I have been a volunteer pilot for Pilots n Paws since 2014 and during that time have personally flown over 600 dogs to rescue.  I am passionate about saving dogs and am excited to have been asked to join the board of Fetch Fido a Flight.
I met my husband while I was a critical care nurse.  I’m now a stay-at-home mom, realtor, and business owner.  I fell in love with Fetch Fido A Flight when my precious foster went on a flight to Idaho.  I always knew dogs were at risk in Oklahoma, but I never imagined we could send literally plane-loads to safety. It’s amazing to be a part of such an amazing new twist to rescuing that’s changing the way we save these precious animals.
