The Sierra County Humane Society will hold its Annual Membership on Wednesday February 4 – time and place to be announced. Elections for empty or expiring directorships are held at that meeting. We are looking for candidates who are dedicated to the goals and purposes of the organization, able and willing to accept the responsibilities of a Director, knowledgeable or willing to learn about the structure and operation of the organization. The Board of Directors is the governing body of the organization. It has the responsibility and authority to oversee all staff and volunteer activities, establish priorities and internal policies. The Board also adopts and implements the Annual Budget. Directors typically serve for a term of three years.
At the Board meeting immediately following the Annual Meeting, the Directors elect the officers, including the President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Please remember: you must be a current member in good standing to nominate or to be nominated for a board position. Your Letter of Intent can be sent to the SCHS Secretary at Post Office Box 638, Williamsburg, NM 87942. It can also be e-mailed to weR4pets@gmail.com. For more information on finding out about the status of your membership or to learn more about becoming a Director of our organization, e-mail us or call us at 894-2639.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the daily care of our little rescues as well as with some of our Tuesday priority projects. Interested? Contact us. You can also visit the sanctuary on a Tuesday, when the sanctuary is open to the public. We need help on Tuesday to join Claudia in sorting through donated craft and sewing items. Once ready for display, they can be sold at Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe. We continue to need paint brushes and painting material, also cat treats, canned dog food, bird & sunflower seeds and scratch grain. All through the winter, we use well-worn pillows, blankets and other bedding items for our furry sanctuary residents. Do you wish to donate specific items of your choice through several large companies such as Amazon, Walmart, and pet supply companies that deliver right to our doors? Let us know. We update our Facebook pages www.Facebook.com/DesertHaven and www.Facebook.com/Pawsnclawsthriftshoppe regularly. You can also visit our web site at www.DesertHavenAnimalRefuge.com.
