Cheryl Schneider is the Director of Animal Services for the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter. A former Nurse/Paramedic for 32 years, Cheryl became interested in the city operated animal shelter in Lockhart during her tenure as Emergency Medical Services Director. Concerned for the welfare and outcome of the animals at the shelter, she formed a volunteer group, Cause for Paws, Inc., in 1999 whose mission was to assist with the shelter operations and funding. Soon Animal Services were placed under her management. After retiring from the City of Lockhart in 2007, Cheryl went to work in Williamson County as the director for the newly built regional animal shelter which intakes about 7000 animals annually. During her tenure, the euthanasia rate has steadily decreased. Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter has achieved a save rate of over 90% since December 2010.
Cheryl holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Resource Management. She lives in Georgetown, Texas with her 7 dogs and 1 cat as well as an occasional foster.
