Greetings one and all!
This past year has been an exciting time for the Humane Society! Under the leadership of our capital campaign chairs and along with other committed volunteers, board and staff members, huge strides have been made towards securing a new building. Though we have yet to reach 100%, we are over three quarters of the way! The support has been overwhelming and warmed our hearts and “cold noses”!
Additionally, the board and key staff members participated in a strategic planning workshop visioning our direction for the next five years. Considering the new facility and its ability to increase our capacity in animal welfare, community involvement and education, exciting changes and opportunities are unfolding!
Last year saw a lot of positives for animals and humans alike. Over 770 animals were adopted! This is over 100 more adoptions than in 2014. To add greatness to something already great, one of those months saw a record adoption number of 104 animals finding their forever homes. And, we ended the year with more animals going out of the shelter than being admitted – a first in HSEC’s history!
The bar was raised again in 2015, and we will continue to push it a bit higher each year with greater accomplishments. Thanks to all of you who have been given of your time, talents and treasure in helping to fulfill our mission. We invite you all to continue being a part of this incredibly rewarding journey and to invite others to join in this venture.
Thank you for your support
President, Board of Directors
