It is with mixed emotions that we share the news that Allison Paris, our Dog Program Manager, is leaving Second Chance. With her strong commitment to the welfare of the animals, Allison has made significant contributions across both the dog and cat programs. She has been responsible for the rescue and rehoming of over 1,000 dogs since she joined us in 2009. Additionally, she has been instrumental in the training of many volunteers and to the operation of the adoption center, and has been contributory to the successful execution of many fundraising events. Quite simply, she has played an integral role in the success and growth of the organization over the eight years she has been on staff. While we are sad to see her leave us, we are supportive and excited for her as she strikes out on an adventure towards something new and different. Her last day on duty will be October 11. We wish her our very best and she has our deepest thanks.
To build on the foundation that Allison has laid, we are pleased to announce that Laura Honeycutt will be joining Second Chance as our new Dog Program Manager. Laura has extensive experience in animal rescue, most recently in a volunteer capacity as a Dog Program lead for the Paws for Life rescue group based in Franklin County. Laura will be joining us November 6.
Should you have any matters relating to the Dog Program between October 11 and November 6, please direct them to Lisa Imhof.
