Audra Michael started her career in Animal Care and Control by volunteering. After going on a ride-a-long with an Animal Control Officer, she felt Animal care and Control was her calling. Starting as an Animal Control Officer in 2011, Audra moved up the chain quickly becoming an FTO then a Field Supervisor. In 2015 she was tasked with the job of Interim Director, and was appointed officially 5 months later. In the past 5 years as Director, Audra and her team has brought the live release rate up from 82% to a 94%, and has become more involved with community engagement and helping keep pets in their homes. In 2019 the shelter was able to help over 500 animals stay in their homes through better pet care, building dog houses, micro chipping, vaccines, and free spay/neuter.
