As a nonprofit organization with only one employee, the individuals who serve on the board of directors for the Doña Ana County Humane Society are vital to the continued success of the agency. From providing governance and leadership, to rolling up their sleeves and pitching in to volunteer at our many events, people who serve on the DACHS board make a tremendous impact in the animal welfare community. Please help us welcome the three newest additions to our board of directors.
