Greater Birmingham Humane Society welcomes Katie Shaddix as Director of Marketing

Birmingham, Ala. — The Greater Birmingham Humane Society, Alabama’s largest and oldest humane society, is proud to welcome Katie Shaddix to its staff as Director of Marketing
Prior to joining the staff at the Greater Birmingham Humane Society, Shaddix served for nearly eight years as Development and Communications Coordinator for theAlabama Rivers Alliance after a decade working in the private sector.
An active volunteer for animal causes, Shaddix serves on the board of Do Dah Day, an annual Birmingham festival that has raised over $1.3 million for homeless animals in Jefferson County. She has also volunteered with numerous animal rescue organizations and has been a volunteer “foster parent” to over 100 cats and dogs in need.
“My professional background is in marketing and communications, and my heart is in my work on behalf of animals,” Shaddix said. “I am thrilled to be in a position that combines both and gives me the opportunity to join the phenomenal team at Greater Birmingham Humane Society.”
As Director of Marketing, Shaddix will oversee the marketing strategy that will keep the community informed of the work of Greater Birmingham Humane Society as the organization strives to become known as a center of excellence at aiding homeless, injured, abused, and neglected animals.
“With our expansion into Animal Care & Control, the Greater Birmingham Humane Society’s programs are growing at a faster rate than ever before,” said Allison Black Cornelius, Executive Director and CEO.
“Katie’s experience and expertise will be invaluable in helping us let the community know about our organization, its work, and new expanded range of services,” Cornelius said. Communicating our work to the community will be key to us meeting our ultimate goal of saving the lives of as many adoptable pets as possible.”
