  • Crystal Specht, (320) 252-0896 ext. 28,
    Crystal manages donor activities to raise financial support for TCHS to enable meeting the strategic goals of the organization. She works toward the identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of donors through personal contact, direct mail and newsletter campaigns, fundraising and awareness events, foundation research and grant request writing, planned giving, monthly giving, matching gifts, solicitation of corporate gifts, and donor acknowledgment.
    Crystal is from St. Cloud and has spent most of her life in Central Minnesota. In her free time, she loves to travel, camp and explore, listen to music, and create things artistically. Of course, she also is a pet lover.
    “We have two animals at home, a mini-dachshund, we call her Weener, and our head of household kitty cat Sassy,” she said. Weener was an “unexpected rescue” from a puppy mill, and Sassy is a TCHS alum. “My fiancé Bryan and I do not have any children, so these two are absolutely our children and are spoiled as such. We love our girls.”

  • Kate Kompas, (320) 252-0896 ext. 27,
    Volunteers are essential to everything TCHS does. Kate trains and manages nearly 1,000 volunteers, including a team of humane education volunteers.
    TCHS volunteers provide hands-on animal care such as grooming, exercising, and socializing the animals while they wait for their new homes. In addition, volunteers assist with kennel cleaning, general housekeeping, and customer service. Other volunteer opportunities include off-site adoption events, animal photography, office work/data entry, yard work, building maintenance, newsletter mailings, fundraising events, humane education and pet visits at schools and day cares, senior care pet therapy visits, veterinary medicine, and committee work.
