Orcas Animal Protection Society announces new director

Submitted by the Orcas Animal Shelter board.

The Orcas Animal Protection Society board is delighted to introduce our new shelter director, Kristina Snyder. Snyder recently moved to Orcas from Montesano, Washington with her husband Cameron, and their dogs Niko and Loki. Snyder served as executive director at PAWS of Grays Harbor, a busy animal shelter where she worked with a large and diverse community. She will be working with retiring Director Marsha Waunch for several weeks during a period of transition.

Since the Orcas Animal Protection Society opened its doors in 2002, it has been the place to come to adopt a dog or cat, find help with cremation of a beloved pet who has passed, have some kitten cuddle therapy or for help searching for a lost cat or dog. We also help with those who need lower-cost spays or neuters for their pets.

We welcome Kristina to our Orcas community and look forward to working with her as the shelter continues to advocate for animals in need.
