Nevada Humane Society executive director resigning

April 27, 2013

Bonney Brown, the current Executive Director of Nevada Humane Society, announced her resignation, effective July 12, 2013. She has been an outstanding leader of the organization for the past six years, realizing amazing lifesaving accomplishments with over 55,000 pet adoptions and a 94% shelter and community-wide save rate. Washoe County is now among the safest metropolitan areas in the country for homeless pets and the open-admission, no-kill shelter has become a shining model for communities all over the nation.

Brown is very passionate about continuing her lifesaving work and will be working full-time for Humane Network, a non-profit organization that provides consulting services including practical information, model programs, and networking opportunities to humane organizations, rescue groups, and concerned citizens who want to dramatically increase animal lifesaving and create no-kill communities.

“I have put my heart and soul into Nevada Humane Society; I love this organization and always will. If it were not for the compelling nature of this new opportunity, I would not be leaving,” said Brown. She is very proud of what the organization and the community have accomplished on behalf of its homeless pets. She is now ready to make a similar difference in other communities.

Nevada Humane Society is currently accepting applications for the Executive Director position and more information can be found on their website. For more information, call (775) 856-2000.
