As an assignment for Com351, Interviewing, I interviewed Brenda Barnette, CEO of the Seattle Humane Society. These are my findings. On a side note, there is audio from the interview that goes along with some of the slides, but I'll have to figure out how to make that work later.

Interview2: Seattle Humane Society Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Interview #2: A Look Inside The Seattle Humane Society Pres en te d by: M a n d y Web er
  • 2. The Interviewee Brenda Barnette, Chief Executive Officer for the Seattle Humane Society The SHS mission is “to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves, and to bring people and animals together.”
  • 3. My Purpose: To learn a little bit about who Brenda is, and to understand why she does what she does. To learn how the Seattle Humane Society works to ensure the humane treatment of animals, and how they bring the people and animals of our community together.

  • 6. While at the SPCA... Brenda learned to “trust donors to take care of animals, learned how to raise money, and came to believe that if you just go out and tell donors what their dollars help you to do, and the happy endings - If you just ask, they’ll help you.”
  • 7. Greatest Achievements for the Seattle Humane Society: The number of lives saved has increased. Since 2006, all animals, regardless of age, health, and beauty, are given as much time as needed to find a home of their own. Very recently, a campus-wide policy has been implemented to begin saving the lives of the unborn puppies and kittens that come into the Seattle Humane Society. Many upgrades to the facilities have been made. By increasing efficiency, throughput increases.

  • 11. Puppy Mills Busted Skagit and Snohomish puppy mills raided. Over 400 dogs seized. The Seattle Humane Society took action by housing 84 of those dogs, all of which were filthy, matted, and flea infested. Some also had internal parasites, and tumors that had not been dealt with. SHS provides reports on all the dogs for the prosecution. All the dogs will be spayed/neutered, medically and behaviorally tested, microchipped, socialized, and prepared for adoption.

  • 13. The Impact of the Economy Major donors are more conservative. Less people are able to pay for the care of their pets, causing them to give them up, or in the case of expensive health issues, having to put them down.
  • 14. Pet Food Bank Low-income pet owners Monthly food supply 400 tons of canned and dry pet food delivered to over 1,000 people in King County each month

  • 17. Brenda’s Reflections “We have to take responsibility for the animals, all of them, and make sure that they have the right and adequate lifestyle, and that they have homes of their own. If we’re all working together then we can do more.”
