CAROLYN EVANS, Executive Director


Carolyn is a Founding member of Clermont Animal CARE Humane Society (CACHS) and currently serves on its Board of Directors. It was Carolyn's vision to support the Best Friends Animal Society No Kill 2025 Initiative that led to the formation of CACHS in October 2017 and the decision to bid on the contract for the Clermont County animal shelter.

Carolyn's extensive collaborative work in the Cincinnati-area animal welfare community allowed her to pull together a strong coalition of like-minded individuals and organizations to work toward implementing life-saving programs in support of the No Kill 2025 Initiative. She is the Founder and Board President of My Furry Valentine, host of Greater Cincinnati’s largest animal adoption event celebrating nearly 5,000 adoptions in 7 years; former Board President of United Coalition for Animals, Greater Cincinnati’s first and only high-volume spay/neuter clinic for cats and dogs performing more than 110,000 surgeries to date; and former Board Secretary for HeARTsSpeak, an international non-profit organization that unites art and advocacy to increase the visibility of shelter animals. Through these endeavors, Carolyn has cultivated many long-standing relationships that will serve to fortify the Clermont Animal CARE Humane Society mission in service to the people and animals of Clermont County.

ERIN GRAUL, Field Services Officer


Erin is a Clermont County native, originally from Goshen. She attended Live Oaks where she studied Animal Science and has been working with animals off and on for the past 25 years. The thing Erin loves most about her job working out in the field as an officer for the Clermont County animal shelter is that every day is different, while meeting and helping people and animals in the county. 

CHRISTINA LIPPOLD, Animal CARE Technician, Medical Assistant


Christina has been a Shelter Kennel Technician for 12 years, with experience at League for Animal Welfare, our private, no-kill shelter friends in Batavia. There she was responsible for the health and well-being of the animals, and she also began volunteering at off-site events such as the My Furry Valentine Mega Adoption, working on fundraising event committees and getting involved in other special projects. One of Christina's favorite accomplishments at the League was planting and registering a Monarch Butterfly waystation. Not only did it support the LFAW's cat enrichment program, but the effort helped assure the preservation of the species and the continuation of the spectacular monarch migration phenomenon.

Christina is mom to two adorable kitty cats and her yard is a safe haven to all wildlife. In addition to the League Monarch habitat, she also created a Monarch waystation in her home garden. Animals have always been part of her life, so working in this field just makes good sense!

TRISHA SPENCE, Animal CARE Technician


In her early 20's, Trisha was given a dog as a gift - he was the one that fueled her fire to rescue. At nine months old, he had a serious accident and although both vets and trainers advised euthanasia, Trisha never gave up on her boy. Her love and commitment to him is what led her to the field of animal rescue. Throughout the years Trisha has worked in several shelters and done a lot of volunteer and foster work with various organizations, but her true passion is animal hospice. Working at the shelter gives her the opportunity to advocate for seniors and special needs animals. Trisha is grateful to be working at a shelter like Clermont that aligns with her own values and continues to fight for those hard cases.




CARLA HOFMANN, Volunteer Coordinator


Carla is a life-long animal advocate. She started volunteering in the animal community in 2015 after she lost one of her dogs to bone marrow cancer.  She felt volunteering would be a nice way to memorialize her pup and pay it forward for animals in need.  Little did she know that she would find a strong passion for helping the homeless and neglected animals in her community.  Through her volunteering experience she has coordinated adoption events, fostered puppies and currently helps with fundraising events. Her true love is working one on one with the dogs and assisting in the adoption process.
