Our Board of Directors
Abby Evert
      Abby has been a resident of Hernando County for 35 years.  She worked for non-profit organizations for 35 years before retiring 7 years ago.  She has volunteered with Hernando County Animal Services for 10 years.  At home are her rescued canines Bailey,  Bella and Toby.  
Vice President
Dottie Brown
       Is a (mostly) retired RN and Nursing Home Administrator.  Dottie has a passion for working with seniors as well as with animals.  This makes her thoroughly enjoy bringing shelter animals to visit residents in our area nursing homes. Currently, Dottie splits her time between Nebraska and Ridge Manor, traveling back and forth with her 4 legged companion, Copy Cat.
Sarah Caskie
        Sarah has always loved animals, but it wasn't until she was 15 years old and volunteered to work in the kennels at Hernando County Animal Services that she realized she wanted to be more involved with animals.  When she was 19 she started working at HCAS full time and worked there for almost 9 years until November 2015.  After having been adamant she wanted to work with shelter animals, it was not easy to leave.  When Sarah was approached to be a part of Operation Kindness she was thrilled.  Sarah currently has one dog, Riley, a male Lhasa Apso.
Jill Armbrecht
        Jill is a retired accountant and business consultant and has been a resident of Hernando County for 29 years. As an advocate for shelter animals she has volunteered in many capacities including animal care, community outreach, adoption counseling and enrichment implementation for dogs and cats living in a shelter environment. In addition to fostering, Jill currently shares her home with two very spoiled cats, Holly and Maggie.
