Vice President

Amy Howe

I have one cat named “Branch” named after the grey troll not the county- we adopted him from the shelter but don’t tell one one that because Santa brought him to our house), and a Jack Russell named Rose. I also adopted four barn cats from the shelter to live on our farm.

Co - treasurer

Karen Dewey

I have been on the Humane Society Board for going on three years now. we do not have any pets at this time. We do baby sit for fur grandbabies sometimes.


There have been so many new and exciting changes that have happened at the shelter during this time. It is a rewarding opportunity to be working with such a great group of people that have the same goal of helping and caring for the needy animals in our community.
