Executive DirectorJob Description
ORGANIZATION: Athens Area Humane Society
POSITION AVAILABLE: Executive Director
The Athens Area Humane Society (AAHS), a no-kill facility, was established 24 years ago and is a private, nonprofit organization that spays and neuters over 3,000 animals annually with a full time surgeon on staff, receives no government funding and is not a United Way agency. AAHS receives no funding from, and is not affiliated with, any national humane organization - not the ASPCA or the Humane Society of the United States, or any other agency.
AAHS offers safe, low-cost spay/neuter surgeries for pets owned by people who may not otherwise utilize the services of veterinarians. The goal is to reduce the number of unwanted animals and thus the euthanasia rate in our community. AAHS also offers a host of other services, including rabies shots and other vaccines, all at low cost, for the benefit of cats and dogs owned by people who may not otherwise utilize the services of veterinarians.
AAHS works in cooperation with, and not as competition for, veterinarians who work in the greater Athens area. AAHS offers surgery services to animal control agencies in several Georgia counties. The Society's services to these facilities not only cuts down on the rate of unwanted animals, but also helps increase the likelihood that the animals waiting in these facilities will be adopted as the new owners will have the minimum services to provide on their own before being able to take an animal home.
The Executive Director of the Athens Area Humane Society (AAHS) oversees and directs daily functioning of the organization as well as conceives and coordinates new projects for the Society’s growth. There are FOUR (4) crucial tasks whose thoughtful and efficient execution by the Executive Director will ensure the long-term health of the Athens Area Humane Society as well as the people in the area who rely on our services and the thousands of animals who annually receive our care and protection. Short and long term goals will be provided to applicants under serious consideration.
