Love Starts Here: The Humane Society of Huron Valley and its role in the community
Jessie Hitt
For more than 120 years, the Humane Society of Huron Valley (HSHV) has been serving the community, saving animals and helping people. HSHV is still the only animal shelter in Washtenaw County, taking in all types of unwanted, injured, lost, stray, abandoned, and abused animals. Today, they help over 14,000 animals and their people every year. HSHV is governed by a board of directors and is supported by generous individual and corporate donors.

The presentation will explore how the HSHV engages within our community, and share their vital work in areas of Adoption, Cruelty & Rescue, and Humane Education.  We’ll learn how the Humane Society has gone virtual during COVID-19, and will be introduced to some of their adoptable animals.

Jessie Hitt is the Humane Education Manager at HSHV. She has a master’s degree in Humane Education from Valparaiso University and has worked at HSHV for the past seven years.
