DENVER – The Colorado Humane Society & SPCA (CHS) is pleased to announce that Peggy Richter, a partner in the law firm Kutak Rock, will serve on its board of directors for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
The CHS board currently includes 10 members from a variety of fields and interests. Ms. Richter handles real estate, finance, corporate and natural resource matters at Kutak Rock and has provided countless hours of pro bono services to CHS, assisting with investigation, preparation and prosecution of animal cruelty and neglect cases.
"Peggy was instrumental in the launch of the new Colorado Humane Society & SPCA in 2009, and we’re pleased to welcome her to the board of directors," says Jed Rogers, DVM, chairman of the Colorado Humane Society board of directors. "Her background at Kutak Rock and passion for animals provides CHS with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in our fight against animal abuse and neglect."
The Colorado Humane Society & SPCA works with local law enforcement and government agencies to investigate and prevent the cruelty and neglect of companion animals and horses (excluding livestock) within the state.
CHS is an independent, Colorado-based nonprofit organization and is not affiliated with national advocacy groups or government agencies.
“I am honored to serve on the board of such a great nonprofit and look forward to the progress we will make in reducing the number of cases of animal abuse and neglect in Colorado,” says Peggy Richter.
