About the Good Shepherd
Good Shepherd Humane Society, Inc. was founded in 1974, in Eureka Springs, AR.  We are a  501(c)3 non-profit organization supported solely by donations, adoption fees, membership subscriptions and fund raising. We also benefit from the Good Shepherd Humane Society Doggie Thrift Stores, where all proceeds go directly to the Animal Shelter. The stores are located in Eureka Springs & Berryville, AR. 

The Good Shepherd is managed by a board of volunteers. Our board is a mix of community leaders, business owners, animal lovers and passionate individuals. 
Our Mission: To care for the stray, abandoned and unwanted dogs and cats of Carroll County, placing as many as possible into loving homes; to promote responsible pet ownership and humane treatment for all animals; to help reduce pet overpopulation by promoting and providing low-cost spay/neuter programs.

BOARD MEETINGS 
 
Board meetings are currently the 4th Wednesday of every month at 1pm.  

All meetings are currently held at the shelter facility at 6486 Highway 62 East,
Eureka Springs. Our Board meetings are open to all GSHS members. In order to respect the time of the volunteer Directors, 
rules of order do apply and member comments are limited to 3 minutes per person. We appreciate professional and positive engagements. 

The Board of Directors of GSHS are dedicated to those ideals expressed in our mission statement. Board Members serve 1-3 year terms. 
Board member responsibilities include setting policy for the animal shelter, grant writing, developing the animal shelter’s and thrift stores annual budget, assisting the shelter director and thrift store manager with marketing, education and fund raising.

Board members are actively involved in various fund raising events and committees. Our volunteer Directors spend an average of 8-12 hours a month (or more) fulfilling board duties, including the monthly meetings. 
Directors are required to take an orientation class so they can get to know the procedures of the shelter and the staff. In addition, we ask our volunteer directors to work occasionally at  one of thrift stores in order to learn those processes and really get to know our volunteers. We are a very active board.
