Board of Directors

It is a dynamic time for us at the Humane Society. We are looking for those who have skills and professional experience that can add diversity to our growing board and committees. We would benefit from the addition of attorneys, bankers, business owners, veterinarians, realtors, accountants, community leaders, financial consultants, and professional fundraisers. We hope you’ll consider joining our team!
