The Humane Society of Southwest Missouri welcomes Donna Casamento as its new executive director. Donna is a leader in the national animal welfare community known throughout the community as an innovator in developing public/private partnerships. Born and raised in Springfield, Donna is thrilled to return to her hometown where she still has family and friends, and looks forward to serving our community and our animals. She is married with two adult children and an assortment of pets.
The board is excited about the ideas and experience that Donna brings with her, and she will be a dynamic catalyst in our community’s ongoing transformation into a more humane community where we work together so all healthy and treatable dogs and cats get the second chance they deserve. Donna will work to develop partnerships and programs to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets throughout Southwest Missouri and protect them from abuse, cruelty and neglect.
