Chief Executive Officer
As a CPA, Bobbi Yeo worked with various nonprofit organizations until she came to realize the satisfaction of a good mission statement. After nearly 20 years in nonprofit administration, she decided that her true passion had always been companion animals. A year and a half of independent study, visits to various shelters and a short volunteer stint at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary was the preparation for her first job as executive director of an openadmissions shelter in Auburn, Alabama, taking in 5,400 animals each year. When an opening came up at Paws Humane Society in Columbus, Georgia, Bobbi applied and has now been with the organization for nearly five years. Paws does it all, from highvolume spayneuter to adoptions to Pets for Life and community cats, making a huge difference in the lives of pets and the people who love them in the Chattahoochee Valley. Bobbi and her husband, Dave, like to hike and swim with their dogs, Tinker, Sam and Lucy. Their beloved tabby, Bjorn, is more of a homebody.
