Janice J. Donaldson, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Northwest Iowa, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in animal rescue.
After spending 28 years as a high school English and literature teacher, Ms. Donaldson decided it was time to follow her greatest passion: animal rescue. She joined the Humane Society of Northwest Iowa as the executive director in 2015, and is responsible for overseeing the no-kill shelter and delivering excellent care to the cats and dogs housed there. Ms. Donaldson is proud to work with a staff that cares as much as she does; the focus is always on the animals. Moving forward, they intend to continue working to improve shelter life and networking to get the pets adopted faster into good homes.
On the academic side of the spectrum, Ms. Donaldson spent her entire career at Spirit Lake High School. She loved the idea of sharing her love for reading with others, and found that the longer she was there, the more she enjoyed teaching her varied students. To her, the most rewarding part of the job was seeing kids she inspired go on to achieve great things. Ms. Donaldson prepared for her endeavors by earning a Bachelor of Arts in secondary education English with a minor in German from Northwestern College in Iowa in 1986.
