Meet our Behavior Coordinator:
Haley LaFond managed the care of approximately 40 horses at a private boarding facility for 3 years prior to joining the South Suburban Humane Society as an adoptions counselor in 2015. Since then, she has done her best to fill any gap in the organization she could, including doing cross-country transports and working as a vet assistant for spay/ neuter surgeries. She has attended several apprenticeships through American Pets Alive! and Maddie’s Fund. Some topics covered include managing shelter health, systematic canine lifesaving, and volunteer dog handling. She also received a scholarship from Karen Pryor Academy for Shelter Training and Enrichment that she is using to help her transition into her newest role as Behavior Coordinator.
