President Gloria Johnson said the board has run out of steam. Several of the current board members are in their upper 70s and 80s and plan to retire.

Johnson said they need some fresh faces to carry on their legacy.

Pender Humane Society opened its no-kill shelter eight years ago.

Johnson said they need people willing to take on the task of organizing events to raise money for the shelter among other duties.

“We’re looking for people who love animals,” Johnson said. “And will give there all to make sure that this continues. We’ve worked so hard during the years to make it possible.”

Johnson said they plan on training those who are interested in taking a seat on the board. She adds they will always be a part of the Pender Humane Society, they just will not be running the show anymore.

If you are interested, they are hosting another meeting Friday at 6 p.m. at For our Furry Friends Thrift Store.
