Last month, the Northshore Humane Society welcomed Megan Haggerty as their new Director of Development.
This hire comes as the non-profit, no-kill rescue works to begin a capital campaign for a new facility.
Megan Haggerty most recently served as the Business Development Director of the St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce, where she was responsible for event planning and membership relations. Before that, Megan was the Membership Relations Director for the East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce in Slidell.
In 2002, Megan received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of New Orleans, followed by her Master’s in Communications from the University of Tennessee in 2003.
She is a member of numerous local organizations including the Steel Mimosas, Bring it Home Northshore, Hometown Hero’s, and the Professional Women of St. Tammany.
As a lifelong resident of St. Tammany, Megan resides in Slidell with her husband Sean Haggerty and children, Sean Patrick, Alex, Mia, and Luke and their dog, Ben.
In the facility built in 1953, Northshore Humane Society operates the largest no-kill shelter and community clinic in our parish. Northshore Humane Society is an independent, non-governmental non-profit that does not receive any tax-payer dollars.
The shelter has received a donation of 12 acres on Harrison Ave. in Covington.
Megan’s primary focus will be working with the community and donors to raise the necessary funds to begin construction on the new shelter.
