The resemblance is striking. Heather L. Achenbach, the director of SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals since June, looks so much like former director Piper Burrows that people frequently mistake her for her predecessor.
“Piper and I did spend a little time together after I started here,” said Ms. Achenbach, who worked for 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry. “We didn’t know each other but had spoken on the phone. When we met, she said, ‘Oh, this is weird.’ People say our personalities are similar, too.” more
