Behind every good organization is a board of members supporting it. Here at Helping Paws Pet Haven we currently have a board with 13 members. Our board meets four times a year, and it is at these meetings where we make all of our important decisions and plan upcoming events.
Denise has been a very dedicated Volunteer of
Helping Paws for the past 9 years. She has chaired
and co-chaired several of our large fund raisers like
our Annual Banquet as well as our Garage Sales. She
has been involved with several other non-for-profits Boards
and is a Licensed Realtor at ReMax Professional Group.
Glenda has been a very faithful volunteer for the past 9
years at both of our locations of Helping Paws. Her love
for all the felines, shows by all the "wagging tails", whenever
she enters a room! She has been very active with all our
different fund raisers and has been an officer for the past
8 years. She allows her husband, Brian, to "bring-home-the-
bacon", so that she can be a full-time Volunteer for the kitties!
David has been a very active volunteer for Helping Paws for
the past 8 years. His love is in the raising of lots of money
for all the needs of the felines! He spends hours upon hours
of his spare time working on our 2 HUGE Garage sales. He
is always one of the first people to say YES when there is
work to be done to help out the Kit-Kats...they simply LOVE him!
Linda is a "new-bee" to Helping Paws and has been an active
volunteer for the past year. She has always loved felines her
entire life and feels that "home" is really not a "home" without
at least 1 to 3 kitties. She loves to stop by on a weekly base
and bring all the Kit-Kats treats and toys, as she sits down and
brushes as many as time will allow her to. Linda is the co-owner
of her own business, El Shaddai, Inc., a screen printing business.
Dawn has been an animal lover her entire life! At a very young age,
she had a vision of a "no-kill-feline-facility". She and her best friend,
Denise Schloemer, are the co-founders of Helping Paws. Dawn, by
career, is a Vet Assistant for Village Animal Hospital in Huntington.
So there is never a day that goes by that Dawn isn't doing what she
likes doing the BEST....caring and loving for ANIMALS in a special way!
Betsy is a 10-year veteran with Helping Paws and has been there since
day one, when the doors opened. She has always had a minimum of 1
to 5 cats, while growing up and loved the idea of a "no-kill" facility. She
stays involved, on a daily base, because she feels like she is a "grandma"
to each of the kitties! She has been an officer and Board member for all
10 years. Betsy is a licensed Realtor at ReMax Professional Group. She
donates 10% of every closing she has to the kitties at Helping Paws.
