Humane Society director awarded for Pit Bull program


The Humane Society for Hamilton County’s president and CEO, Rebecca Stevens, is one of five leaders in the animal welfare industry to be chosen as a recipient of the Great Lakes Animal Welfare Conference 2018 Bright Ideas Award.

The award honors those who have best showcased cutting-edge projects, campaigns and facility improvements, allowing other animal welfare professionals to use them as industry models.

Stevens will present HSHC’s Pit Bull Angel Program and PSA, the program and marketing campaign for which they’re being recognized, at the Oct. 22-23 Great Lakes Animal Welfare Conference in Battle Creek, Mich.

“I’m truly honored to receive this award and have the opportunity to share our Pit Bull education and adoption programs with other animal welfare professionals,” Stevens said. “Pit Bulls and ‘bully breed’-type dogs represent the majority of dogs entering and dying in U.S. shelters. We would love nothing more than to help others change that statistic in their communities.”
