Meet the Board



Sandy is a lifelong resident of Putnam County and, being raised on the family farm, became involved in the care and love of a variety of animals.  Sandy, her husband Barry, and her children owned Grimes Quarter Horses, a business that included the breeding, raising and showing of State Champions, National Snaffle Bit Champions, National and World Champion Quarter Horses. Upon hanging up her spurs, Sandy served as a docent at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art and as a past HSPC board member. Currently, Sandy volunteers at Rescued Treasures as a store manager.

Board Member
Maureen has lived in Putnam County since 1981. She taught school over 40 years, 37 of them at Cloverdale High School.  She has one son who lives in Houston, Texas. She has been owned by eight dogs and one cat, all of whom were charity cases. Gretel, one of her current dogs was adopted from the Humane Society of Putnam County Shelter 10 years ago. Maureen joined the HSPC board when she first learned of it. After she retired, she felt lost.  Maureen said her thought was “What do you do if you don’t get up and go to school?”  Then she read an article in the newspaper about Rescued Treasures. She began by volunteering a couple of hours a week.  Now, Maureen volunteers two to three days a week, and she has served one term on the Humane Society board.
