If you have strong leadership skills, a passion for saving lives, and a commitment to the No Kill philosophy, NHS invites you to apply to become a key player at one of the leading No Kill animal shelters in the country.
This is a unique opportunity to become a key player in leading a No Kill organization with a community campaign, and to work closely with a skilled and dedicated team of paid staff, large volunteer base, and committed board of directors in a very civic-minded and engaged community.

- Found loving, new homes for over 8,600 animals in 2008.
- As of September 30, 2009, NHS is leading the initiative saving 93% of dogs and 88% of cats countywide.
