Traci’s Tidbits

Hello! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Traci and I am the new Executive Director here at the McCracken County Humane Society.

I have a wonderful and supportive husband. He and I are fortunate enough to share a home with 3 resident cats, an elderly dog, and at any given time, any number of foster animals waiting for their chance at a forever home! I am also blessed with a fantastic daughter and grandson that I have passed on my love of animals too!

I have devoted most of my life to rescuing animals in some capacity or another and I am very excited to be able to do that as part of this wonderful organization! It is important to me that all of the animals in my facility receive the best care we can give them with the ultimate goal of finding them the forever home best suited for them. I truly view them as ‘my babies’ and only want the best for them!

As we all get back to a sense of normalcy, I am happy to be able to get back into doing events and meeting with potential adopters, donors, volunteers and other members of the community. We are greatly appreciative of all of our past, and future adopters, as well as all donors and volunteers. Every role is important and helps…it truly does take a village!! 

-Traci, Executive Director
