A Message from KHS Leadership

March 20, 2023

Dear Friends of KHS,

Our leadership is changing. Lee Harper has resigned from her role as KHS Executive Director. We deeply appreciate her service over the last two years and celebrate all we that have achieved together under her leadership.

The Leadership Team and Board of Directors are working closely to ensure that KHS continues to seamlessly support animals and people in need.

In the short term, our Director of Shelter Medicine Dr. Jen Stonequist and Director of Philanthropy Jamie Nocula will serve as Interim co-Executive Directors. Dr. Jen brings decades of experience in animal welfare to this role and Jamie brings more than twenty years of organizational leadership. We will share more information about our transition plans soon.

KHS continues to be one of the leading animal-welfare organizations in the Pacific Northwest. We rehomed more than 3,400 animals in 2022. We spayed and neutered 4,000 pets. We provided compassionate foster homes to more than 2,500 pets. This year, we’re looking forward to more great accomplishments, including the opening of our Russ & Linda Young Veterinary Lifesaving Center this fall.

Supporters like you make all of our life-changing work for animals possible. Thank you for helping us move toward a time when all adoptable pets have loving homes.

For the animals,

Sandra Butler
KHS Board President
