Sometimes everything comes together perfectly. Heidi Hayes, with an impressive background in marketing, abiding love of our valley, and a passion for animals and their welfare, came together when Mountain Humane needed her. Heidi’s decades of experience leading clients large and small through the maze of marketing, advertising, and effective engagement are indeed impressive.

Heidi always had great empathy for animals, domestic and wild. She became deeply involved with animal welfare work in California, has studied contemporary shelter practices, and is a skilled dog handler. Last year Heidi and her husband decided to make Idaho their permanent home. (Her ancestors were some of the Magic Valley’s early settlers.) She volunteered at Mountain Humane to help our animals; a chance conversation revealed her rich background and, well, the rest is history.
