LONGVIEW - The Board of Directors of the Humane Society of Northeast Texas (HSNTX) is

pleased to announce they have hired Mr. Scott Holloway as Executive Director. Holloway comes to Longview

with many years of experience as an animal shelter executive director, shelter manager, boarding kennel

owner/operator and animal behaviorist.

“Our goal is to save as many adoptable dogs and cats as we can. We also want to educate the public

about pets and their care,” said Holloway. He continued, “I plan to provide leadership, expertise and

knowledge that will enable us to grow with the community and improve the human-animal bond."

HSNTX Board President, Susan Gill stated, “The board is very impressed with Mr. Holloway’s

experience, training and successes. We are so fortunate he agreed to accept the position with our shelter and

move to Longview. Our pet population deserves the best and Scott is one of the best!”

The Humane Society of Northeast Texas, a private non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in

1972 by a group of Longview citizens who wanted to ensure that the community’s homeless and unwanted

animals were treated with compassion and kindness. To provide this service, the HSNTX built and continues to

operate the animal shelter located at 303 Enterprise Street in Longview. The HSNTX is funded through public

donations, fees charged for adoptions and other services and contracts for animal sheltering services with

municipalities in the region. The HSNTX animal shelter is an open admissions shelter, meaning that all animals

brought through its doors are accepted and the staff and volunteers are dedicated to finding homes for as many

of them as possible.

In March, the HSNTX took in 445 animals and the save rate was 67%. The Humane Society of

Northeast Texas is accepting volunteer and foster applications and welcomes partnerships with rescue groups

across the U.S. to expand its ability to provide a positive future for the animals entrusted to the shelter. For

more information please contact the Humane Society of Northeast Texas Executive Director, Scott Holloway,
