GMHS Annual Auction
Smiles and a Puppy Kiss! What could be better? Representatives from Peebles Department Store in Hayes are shown below presenting a 'big check' to the GMHS. Thank you Peebles, your Sales Associates and Customers! Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our Shelter animals!
A reason to be thankful & another reason to 'Shop Local!' The sales associates at Peebles Department Store chose the GMHS to be a beneficiary in its "30 Days of Giving Campaign." Customers were asked if they would donate $1; $3; or $5 to help our animals as they checked out, and guess what?... thanks to their sales associates and their wonderful customers, Peebles just delivered a check from its parent corporation, Stage Store, for $2,754.10 to the Shelter today! We are very grateful, and we urge everyone to patronize businesses that give back to our community. Thank you!
New Face of the GMHS! Please meet Nichola Redmond, the new Executive Director of the GMHS. She's pictured holding 'Ronny,' who needed a bit of calming before his photography session on Dec. 1st, which also happened to be Nichola's first day at the GMHS!
Nichola came to the GMHS from New Jersey where for the past 13 years she has been the Executive Director of Mane Stream, Inc. a non-profit organization that provides equine assisted activities, therapy and education to individuals with physical,develop-mental, emotional and medical challenges. Prior to that, she served as the Exec.Dir. for the Animal Welfare Association in Voorhees, N.J. for 6 years. Most of her working life has been spent with non-profits and humane organizations.
Dick Crowder, President of the GMHS Board, says, “Nichola’s wealth of exper-ience and success in animal welfare uniquely qualify her to fill our Executive Director role. There isn’t a position at an Animal Shelter that she hasn’t worked,” added Crowder. “She’s done everything from cleaning cages and runs to being a Vet Tech on up the management chain, and we are excited that she will become a part of the GMHS family.”
Please join us in a big Welcome to Nichola. We're So Glad You're Here!
