Naperville Area Humane Society Seeks Professional, Animal Loving Volunteers

The Naperville Area Humane Society is looking for volunteers to help with upcoming events! Could you be the person that the furry friends of the NAHS is in need of this season?

Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is seeking highly committed individuals to serve on committees for 2013. With a small but highly engaged staff, NAHS relies on a large number of volunteers to help achieve its life‐saving mission of sheltering homeless pets and educating the community.

“Finding volunteers to work at the shelter caring for the cats and dogs is not an issue. However, finding people who are willing to help secure the resources necessary to provide the high‐quality programs and services offered by NAHS can be challenging,” states Executive Director, Angie Wood.

Naperville Area Humane Society hosts a golf outing and gala annually to raise funds critical for operations. The success of the events requires volunteers willing to help secure auction donations, sponsorships and ticket sales. The committees generally meet once a month initially, and then may meet more often as the event day nears. Individuals interested in joining either the golf and/or gala committee should contact Executive Director Angie Wood via email at awood@napervilleareahumanesociety.org.

Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) is also seeking individuals to serve on its Board of Directors. The responsibility of the NAHS Board of Directors falls into three broad categories:

  • Assurance of integrity and accountability of the organization
  • Planning and evaluation of the organization’s programs and services
  • Acquisition and management of funds and resources

Individuals interested in helping NAHS expand its resources, network, and programs may submit an application and resume to Executive Director Angie Wood. The application can be found on the NAHS website at www.NapervilleAreaHumaneSociety.org.

Naperville Area Humane Society is a private, not‐for‐profit organization founded in 1979 to develop and implement animal welfare programs and services within Naperville and surrounding communities. NAHS’ goal is to protect animals and to prevent animal suffering.
