Each year to accomplish our goal of assisting animals in need, our humane society relies on the volunteer services of hundreds of individuals throughout the state. To help us concentrate on specific duties or events, we form special steering committees, which are listed below. Assignments are completed within a flexible time period and most individuals are able to easily meet the time requirements (usually a few hours a week or month) of serving on a committee. To register to serve on a committee, kindly send an email to me at [address removed] and list the committee on which you wish to serve. Additional information (committee meeting schedules are usually announced a few days to a week prior to each meeting)
Sanctuary Steering Committee - this committee is responsible for raising additional operational funds for our two no-kill sanctuaries by planning special events or obtaining corporate sponsorships (or raising money through raffle or garage sales)
Lemon-Aid Day for Animals - this annual event encourages children and pre-teens to raise funds for our humane society through the sale of lemonade. This event is usually held on the third Saturday in August. This committee helps promote this statewide event and encourages kids to register and participate.
Cruelty Investigations (Case Management Team) - members of this team work from their home or office and help us monitor some of the hundreds of complaints that are filed with our humane society each year. After some initial training, cruelty case workers are given complaints that they, in turn, work through the system - which often means contacting the local police, animal control or sheriff's office - and asking them to report their findings back to us, so we can see what is needed to help resolve the situation.
