New SPCA Director Hired

The Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA has selected Leslie Hervey as its new Executive Director. Hervey (pictured) has served as director of the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA for the past nine years. She oversaw a campaign to build a debt-free $2 million facility, and Hervey partnered with animal control officers and the Martinsville community to implement a no-kill policy. She’s also credited with offering a reduced cost animal wellness clinic to help pet owners who were hard hit by the economic downturn.
