Dr. Wes Metzler Day to be proclaimed next Tuesday

The former President and Chief Executive Officer of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, Dr. Wes Metzler, will be honored with a resolution recognizing his service by the El Paso Board of County Commissioners.

The resolution will highlight Dr. Metzler's 17-year tenure during which he "...successfully nurtured the growth of the Society from an organization housed in a collection of cinder-block buildings, with only outdoor dog kennels, to a state-of-the-art animal shelter."

The resolution next Tuesday will also reflect on Dr. Metzler's leadership, resourcefulness, innovation and accountability culminating in the Society's current status as a "...nationally-recognized leader in animal control, caring for nearly 35,000 animals annually through its divisions in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Douglas County and Centennial."
