Helyn Kerr Humane Education Series
Humane Society of Chittenden County’s former Board Chair and advocate, Helyn Kerr, passed away in August, 2016. She was a powerful force in promoting the humane treatment of animals.
She served on our volunteer Board from 2006 – 2014, serving as Chair from 2012-2014. She and her husband David have a two beautiful rescued HSCC alums Jackson and Carly.
After some thoughtful reflection, we have formalized the decision to rename “Best Friends University” to the “Helyn Kerr Humane Education Series”. The series logo was designed from a photo of Jackson and Carly taken by Kelly Schulze of Mountain Dog Photography.
Helyn’s life and worked epitomized all that HSCC's humane educations series attempts to bring to others.
The Helyn Kerr Humane Education Series offers free seminars on various humane education topics that are geared towards anyone interested in knowing more about their companion animals. Past seminars have focused on how dogs think and perceive the world, the latest in feline nutrition, our work in humane investigations, Vermont's animal cruelty laws, first aid for pets, and much more!
