Many people have asked about the journey that led me to become the Director of the Greene County Humane Society. Like many of you, | was born with a special affinity for creatures great and small.

I followed my Biology major in college by working with many species of animals.

This is a photo of me with an Amazon River Dolphin with whom | worked for six years. Although I do not support plucking animals out of their natural environments, this poor dolphin was alone in a zoo. The wise Aqua Zoo director felt it only humane to give him company. After intensiv training, I was selected as one of eight people who gave companionship and enabled this dolphin to work with his veterinarian for regular and stress-free check-ups.

Since 1995 | have worked here with the same motivation as | had with Chuckles the dolphin: to improve the lives of unwanted or mistreated dogs, cats and farm animals. | believe that all animals are important and have a right to live in a safe and happy environment. Our world would be colorless without them.

The Greene County Humane Society is filled with kindness and hope because of our caregivers, our volunteers and compassionate people like you.We want the very best for every animal in our care.

Thank you for helping us to continue our mission to make the world more humane for all living creatures.

Happy Holidays,

Hello Friends!

Another success because of you! Those of us who rescue animals from abusive situations and watch them recover have an emotional stake in those pets’ future well being. So it is a great reward when adopters stay in touch to tell their
stories. Here is one such story from Mark, the owner of Rex. Rex’s life story exemplifies the good work of our shelter. Thanks to your support, he is a happy dog doing what dogs do best — giving and receiving love.

“Rex was 6 when my 86-year old mother adopted him from the shelter. He was healthy, happy and friendly. We always thought he came from a
good home and the previous owner had perhaps been forced to give him up.Mom adored Rex. He was her constant companion; and when
she became terminally ill, he never left her side, providing comfort and a feeling of safety.

Because he was so utterly devoted to Mom, I was concerned that he wouldn’t adapt to living with me after she passed. But I’ve had Rex for four months now. He loves our walks and has decided it is time to transfer his love to me.

I was curious about his history and decided to phone the shelter to see if anyone remembered him. It turns out that his early life was not as happy as I would have thought. I suppose Rex is a testament to how great it can be to rescue an older dog, and I’m glad I can continue to give him love and a happy life.”

Have a wonderful summer,
