The Animal Rescue League of Boston announced Tuesday that it has selected Milton resident Mary Nee to serve as its 8th president since the organization's inception in 1899.
Nee has worked for nonprofit and government agencies in the Boston area for more than 30 years, most recently as the executive director of hopeFound, a homeless services agency, a news release said.
“Mary’s wealth of experience and achievement in the areas of program development, finance, fundraising, and marketing is the perfect combination of skills to lead the Animal Rescue League of Boston into the next chapter of its proud history,” Malcolm McDonald, chair of the Board of Directors, said in a statement.
The Animal Rescue League of Boston provides animal rescue, adoption, law enforcement, shelter, and veterinary services in Boston, Dedham, and Brewster.
Nee, who shares her home with a Wheaten terrier, said her new job will be a “labor of love.”
