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.
