Connie Howard has been named executive director at Foothills Animal Shelter. Howard’s background in animal welfare spans more than 30 years.

Howard has been in the Front Range area since 1998, and most recently was employed with Michelson Found Animals Foundation.

She also served the Humane Society of Boulder Valley as the vice president of operations from 2001-2011.

“Connie demonstrated strong communication, leadership, and engagement skills throughout our robust hiring process,” Lorie Gillis, president of Foothills Animal Shelter board of directors, said in a news release. “We are pleased to have Connie and her deep understanding of animal welfare join our organization.”

Howard graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in animal science, and has held various positions in state, regional, and national associations.

“Our commitment to animals starts with our individual experiences and love for an animal. Those stories fuel our shared enthusiasm for creating and supporting healthy relationships with pets, and with our community,” Howard said in the release.

“I look forward to advancing the exemplary work of Foothills Animal Shelter.”
