To whom it may concern,
I would like to write in support of Nevada Humane Society. In my 35 years as a resident of Washoe County, I have seen this fine organization morph from a rag tag average animal rescue shelter to a premiere no-kill shelter under the direction of Ms. Bonney Brown.
The NHS facility is a model for all animal shelters. Their record save rate of 94% is the highest of any metropolitan city in the USA and far exceeds the national average of around 60%.
NHS has over 7,000 local volunteers and raises private donations every year through their numerous fund raising events in the community such as, Walk for Animals, Duck Race and Lights of Love. The physical facility itself is amazing. Every time visiting there as a volunteer, I feel warmly welcomed and appreciated by the staff for taking time to socialize the orphaned cats and dogs.
The NHS needs to be recognized for the excellent work it has done for our community under Ms. Brown's administration.
