Taylor Sharp joined Wenatchee Valley Humane Society in 2021 with more than 15 years of experience in animal welfare. She began as a kennel technician and worked her way into executive leadership. Inspired by seeing what a lack of progressive sheltering does to animals, employees and the community, she wanted to make a change. She serves as a board member for the Washington State Federation of Animal Care and Control Agencies and as treasurer to the Pet Alliance of Washington which she founded in 2017. Taylor lives with her two lazy pit bulls and has a revolving door of foster animals.
