Local community initiative takes important step towards opening animal shelter doors. Mount Pleasant, Iowa, April 19th. All God’s Creatures (AGC), a non-profit organization looking to connect the hands and paws of Henry County to build a happier, healthier community has hit an important and exciting milestone in their development. After an extensive search and interview process, the Executive Board recently selected Emily Davis to fill the essential role of Executive Director. Davis will join the team in early May and will work alongside the Board in coming months to solidify plans for both the animal shelter facility and the community programming components. When the shelter opens its doors and is fully operational, the Executive Director will lead a group of staff and volunteers to ensure that all facets of this project run smoothly and successfully. “Our Board has been working tirelessly to ensure that this vision comes to life in the most successful and sustainable way possible. We knew that hiring a full-time, paid Director would be essential to our success and we are all so excited to add Emily to our team. Her knowledge, experience, excitement and drive are going to be invaluable assets to our organization.” -Kate Ridinger, AGC Board Member
