Board of Directors

The HSNB Board of Directors is composed of members of the community who oversee the management and operation of the shelter. Directors serve without compensation in a volunteer capacity and are elected through invitation by currently serving members.

The Board meets the third Tuesday of every month. The public is welcome to attend, and we offer an opportunity at the beginning of each meeting for public comments. For the specific location of our next meeting, please visit our Calendar.

Openings on the Board

We have openings on the Board of Directors, and are looking for applicants who can contribute to our mission in the areas of fundraising, grant writing, capital campaigns, program development, administration of a nonprofit, and more. We are especially interested in applicants who have prior board participation,  prior volunteerism with animal welfare organizations, and those who are lawyers. All board members are volunteers for two year terms, and according to our bylaws all candidates must attend two meetings before they can be voted onto the board. Please download and complete an HSNB Board Application and email it with your resume to BoardofDirectors@HSNB.org.

“Why do human egos seem so threatened by the thought that other animals think and feel? Is it because acknowledging the mind of another makes it harder to abuse them?”
