Search Begins for Board of Directors and Executive Director for Nevada SPCA in Las Vegas

Nevada SPCA is in the process of a major turn-around and is seeking a team of people who will be dedicated to making it a model of animal care and innovation. Humane Network has begun the search for a new board of directors. The former board stepped down, voting to put Humane Network in place as trustee. A new executive director is also being hired as part of the goal to revitalize and lead the 30-year-old organization into the future.

“The organization has a lot of work ahead of it to regain the community’s trust,” said Humane Network President and Principal Consultant Bonney Brown. "Through listening to community concerns, increased transparency, and a commitment to best shelter practices, this will happen. I'm convinced that Nevada SPCA plays a crucial role in lifesaving in this community and that it can play an even more crucial role in the future."

Last week, Humane Network released on its website an initial, high-level plan for Nevada SPCA, outlining the work ahead. Humane Network looks forward to helping the no-kill shelter continue to provide care to animals and find good homes for pets in need.

Anyone interested in serving on the board or learning more about the executive director position, please visit Humane Network’s website to download information. The deadline to apply to the board is June 4, and the deadline for the executive director is June 11.

Humane Network is a Nevada-based nonprofit organization that helps nonprofit animal welfare organizations, shelters and animal services agencies across the country to dramatically and responsibly increase animal lifesaving and create sustainable results.
