Pam Oakes


I’m retired from civil service after 32 years. My background is finance, management, and personnel. I started volunteering at Animal Aid Society in March of 2017. I have always loved animals, particularly dogs. I waited to come to the shelter after my elderly dogs passed. I came to the shelter because I want to help dogs and hopefully make their lives better while at shelter. I’m assistant shift leader on Thursdays. I have also filled in for a few other shifts and have worked several evening shifts. I have helped with a few events, yard sale, mistletoe photos and supported other events.

I hope to bring some of my management/finance expertise to the board and shelter to help with the expansion we will go through for the next few years.
