Deborah Robbins Millman, APR, has been named executive director of Honor Animal Rescue, one of the area’s largest no-kill animal shelters.
“Honor Animal Rescue represents everything quality, progressive animal sheltering should be and I am truly honored to be a part of it,” Millman said. “The dedicated board members, staff and volunteers work together for the good of the animals and there are so many exciting plans in the works which will truly benefit our community. I am eager to introduce everyone to this wonderful organization and its many programs and services.”
Millman, an accredited public relations professional (APR) and Leadership Sarasota graduate, has more than 20 years of nonprofit management experience, most recently with the Humane Society of Sarasota County, where she spearheaded operations for more than a decade. Millman is active in animal welfare on both a local and national scale – this spring, she will represent Honor Animal Rescue as a featured speaker at the Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Care Expo in Las Vegas, the largest international education and training conference for animal care and control, rescue and emergency services professionals.
Honor Animal Rescue has three locations. The eight-acre Ranch, at 4951 Lorraine Road in Bradenton, houses dogs and cats in spacious, environmentally-friendly cottages; Nate’s Place, at 8435 Cooper Creek Blvd., University Park in the Cooper Creek Shopping Center, is a state-of the-art adoption and education center; and Paws Attic Thrift Shop, at 3518 53rd Avenue W., Bradenton, offers a wide variety of donated items with all proceeds benefitting Honor’s animals.
