It has been a true honor to serve on this board and I rest easier knowing I am leaving the management of DHA in the caring, capable hands of our most dedicated board members. I especially want to thank our most knowledgeable and longest-standing founding member, Audra Bentley, for taking charge while Brittany gets up to speed.
Rest assured, I believe in this organization too much to leave for good. My name is staying on the volunteer roster and I'll be helping out with IT and advisement once the task of transition is complete. Mine is not a goodbye, but a "HELLO!" to the good people who will carry on with the positive energy and camaraderie that has helped 113 dogs in our backyard of New York's Capital Region since April 13th, 2012!
All the best,
This month, we also welcome a new BTC4A team member, Julie Flanders. Welcome, Julie!
"You can give a gift to the animals without ribbons or bags.
Even without packages, boxes, or tags.
There’s no need to puzzle until your puzzler is sore…
we’re here with a list of ways you can do more."
"It’s an evolution that you have to go through. You start, as trainers, because you love those whales, you want a life with those whales, and then, as you progress higher through the ranks, you start to see things from the corporate end of it – the corporate greed and exploitation that you don’t agree with. And, even as a high ranking trainer, you cannot stop those things from happening. … I thought I had the power to stop it. I could not.”
