Meet the AWS Staff and Board Members

A shelter's success hinges on the commitment and passion of its staff and volunteers. Our many years working with animals, as well as our unique backgrounds and perspectives, create a collective knowledge base that enhances the quality of care given to the thousands of animals we see each year. We are fortunate to have an active volunteer community that fully endorses and supports our mission. Among our most committed volunteers are the members of our board of directors. Our skilled and energetic board both inspires and enables us to do the work we do. The 2013 - 2014 AWS Board of Directors  John Cavaretta ~ President, John Rhoades ~ Vice President, Sam Bishop ~ Treasurer, Cynthia Talbot ~ Secretary, Stan Barwise ~ Member at Large, Amber Caron, Elena Casey, Katie Gracyk, Susan Higgins, Marilyn Hunter, Gary R. Leech, Malte Lukas, Vernon L. Moore, Elizabeth (Penny) Spaulding, & Molly Talevi
