Nevada Humane Society Executive Director Bonney Brown Stepping Down

July 10, 2013

Bonney Brown, Executive Director of Nevada Humane Society, will officially be stepping down from her post on Friday, July 12, 2013. Brown announced her resignation back in April, after leading the organization for over six years. Her accomplishments include over 55,000 pet adoptions and a 94% shelter and community-wide save rate, making Washoe County one of the safest metropolitan areas in the country for homeless pets. In addition, Brown has made Nevada Humane Society’s open-admission, no-kill shelter a model for communities all over the nation.

“While I am saddened to leave such an amazing organization, I am excited to continue to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets,” said Brown. “I will be working full-time for Humane Network, a non-profit organization that provides consulting services to humane organizations and animal service agencies that want to increase animal lifesaving. There are many other organizations that want to have the same high save rate that Nevada Humane Society does and I am looking forward to helping them achieve that through Humane Network.”

Mitch Schneider, former Manager for Washoe County Regional Animal Services, will be the Interim Executive Director. Schneider has an extensive background in animal services and is the Program Director for Nevada Humane Society’s G.I. Dogs.

Nevada Humane Society’s shelter, at 2825 Longley Lane in Reno, is open for adoptions every day from 11am to 6:30pm and on Saturdays from 10am. For more information, call (775) 856-2000.
