This one is for the birds (and dogs, and cats, and rabbits, and…)

I am so excited to learn that I was elected to the board of directors for SPCA Tampa Bay– the only open door shelter in Pinellas or Hillsborough Counties. This is an amazing organization that accepts any animal, including animals that other shelters must turn away.

While I’ve always been generally aware of SPCA, I got to know a lot more about them when we selected the agency as one of our pro bono clients last year. We created a great campaign for them, and through it, became more impressed with the work they do for our community. A lot more work than they’re given credit for.

I was honored when they inquired about my interest in becoming a board member. After doing an in-depth tour of the impressive facilities (including the farm – my new happy place!) and talking with several current board members, I knew it was something that I would be passionate about – enough to dedicate the time to be effective.

Yoda approves, too.
