Our Staff

MEET THE STAFF!

Anne Eddy, Executive Director

Anne comes to SHS with well over 20 years experience in the animal care field including wildlife rehabilitation, founding and running a nonprofit rescue, nationally certified animal control officer, animal health inspector, and animal cruelty investigations. She is a certified dog trainer, a certified cat trainer and manager, a certified canine massage therapist, and has taken dozens upon dozens of professional level classes.

June Howarth, Shelter Manager

June has been with SHS for many years, starting with cleaning kennels and cages, and working her way up to Manager. She knows the shelter inside and out! June has taken many professional level classes throughout the years, and is not only knowledgeable about dogs and cats, but also ferrets, chickens, goats, rabbits and you name it! June often is fostering newborn puppies and kittens, and rabbits, and once even fostered 10 baby rabbits and their 2 mothers!

Marissa Bentley, Animal Care Technician

Marissa has an associate's degree in Animal Science, and has worked in the animal care field most of her life.  She does training, grooming, runs our fecals using the microscope, draws blood for tests on even the tiniest of kittens, and fosters special kitties for us too! Marissa has also taken many professional classes after getting her degree. Marissa is truly a jack of all trades!

Becca Riley, Animal Care Technician

Becca can almost always be found in the kennels working with our dogs!  A true dog lover, she makes sure that their mental and physical health is top notch.  She does some training, some nose work, some agility, and on top of all that, she helps out everywhere in the shelter!  Becca has taken numerous professional level classes.

Shelley Sweeney, Animal Care Technician

Shelley started many years ago at SHS when she did some volunteer work for her job. That was it, she was hooked!  She took an open shift of cleaning cat cages every Sunday morning for up to four hours. NOT a job most people would want, but Shelley shows up every Sunday with a big smile! As she says, not only does she​ love the kitties, but she thinks the staff is great and really works as a team! We're so grateful to know we can rely on Shelley to do a great job, every Sunday morning - when most people would rather stay in bed!
