Animal Welfare Operations Expert.
For 11 years, I was immersed in the world of animal welfare as Director of Development and Marketing, then Executive Director, of a regional selective admission facility. Throughout my tenure, I learned from the best in the field, including renowned organizations such as Best Friends and ASPCA, and used this knowledge to take the facility to the next level including overseeing the expansion of public clinical services to $1+ million in annual revenue and $600K+ in capital improvements to the building and campus. I also built the organization's development and marketing communications programs from the "ground up" taking annual gifts from less than $200K to more than $1 million.
If you're looking for "real world" advice from someone who has been through a little bit of everything,
I'd love to assist your animal welfare organization with saving more lives. Areas of expertise include:
Adding/expanding public clinical services (healthy pet and spay/neuter) including strategic planning, funding campaigns, and clinical area build out guidance
Building an animal enrichment program for your intakes including construction of outside play areas and adding playgroups to your programming
Creating a robust foster program to expand your life-saving potential
Development of creative adoption campaigns to move more animals into homes
Establishing a simple but effective rescue photography program to help your intakes shine to potential adopters
Successful collaboration with other animal welfare organizations
Program specific fundraising and marketing campaigns
Other areas where you could use help? Reach out and let's talk!
More than likely I have "been there, done that" at least a time or two!
