INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Pet Network Humane Society recently appointed Jason Stipp as new executive director. Stipp was most recently animal care manager at the nonprofit organization.

Christine Chew, Pet Network board chair, praised Stipp’s performance and creativity when she made the announcement.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Jason’s problem-solving ability and people management skills to step up to this position,” Chew said. “Jason has shown a passion for the homeless animals that come through our shelter, and compassion for the people who work with the animals.”

Stipp has worked in the tech industry with AOL. Subsequently, he became a certified teacher and engaged primary grade students in physical education, Spanish and computer skills. He plans to broaden Pet Network’s reach with expanded programs for children and families.

Stipp, who replaces Becky Goodman as Pet Network’s leader, resides in Incline Village with his wife, Carolyn, and their dog, Augustus, and cat, Salvador.

Pet Network’s mission is to rescue adoptable animals that face euthanasia in overcrowded public shelters. Pet Network provides medical care and behavioral training when necessary, and assures that each animal is spayed or neutered to stop the cycle of pet overpopulation.

Each animal remains at the shelter until its new forever family adopts it. No animal ever runs out of time at this no-kill facility.

Since its inception 14 years ago, Pet Network has saved the lives of over 7,000 dogs and cats, plus a few ferrets, rabbits and exotic birds.

Pet Network is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that receives no government funding. The shelter relies on donations from individuals who care about the lives of innocent homeless pets.

The shelter also raises money by selling services such as dog and cat boarding and day care, pet supplies, coffee, chocolates, and thrift and gift items.

The shelter is located at 401 Village Blvd. in Incline Village. Visit petnetwork.org to learn more.
