Our Board of Directors
President/Treasurer
Abby Evert
      Abby has been a resident of Hernando County for 33 years.  She worked for non-profit organizations for 35 years before retiring 5 years ago.  As an 8 year volunteer with Hernando County Animal Services, she assists with adoption events, takes dogs and cats to visit local nursing home residents and fosters orphaned kittens.  At home are her rescued canines Bailey and Bella.  
 
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.
Secretary
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.
Director
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.
 
Director
Chris Hendersen
        Chris was a Police Officer in St Louis, MO for 8 years. She retired after 30 years with Utility Helicopters Program Office at Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville AL. Chris has extensive fundraising experience and is eager to help improve the lives of our shelter animals.  She moved to Spring Hill, FL in March 2017 with her 5 year old brindle Mountain Cur, Molly.
