An Update from The Arrow Fund’s Board of Directors

To:       Supporters of The Arrow Fund

From:   The Board of the Arrow Fund

Subject: Scott Hagan elected new president

The Arrow Fund Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it has named Scott Hagan as its new president.

Hagan, a Louisville real-estate developer and long-time supporter of The Arrow Fund, assumes his new role immediately and will begin working on goals to expedite the development The Arrow Fund’s Animal Rescue Complex and to double the number of animals the organization rescues and rehabilitates.

“I know people hear this often, but it remains true that Kentucky remains at the bottom among all states with its horrible legacy of the mistreatment of animals of all kinds,” Hagan said. “The Arrow Fund has long been a source of healing and hope for thousands of abused and neglected animals, and we have very ambitious plans to become an even greater force for good on the matter.”

Scott takes the position following the resignation last week of Rebecca Eaves, a hero and pioneer in Kentucky’s animal welfare movement, who cited personal and family health issues as requiring her full-time attention going forward. Along with other supporters, she launched The Arrow Fund in 2013 and has contributed to the rescue of more than a thousand animals since then. Board members credit her immense compassion and seemingly inexhaustible energy for helping make The Arrow Fund the well-known success it is today.

“Rebecca leaves a daunting legacy in her wake,” said board member Diane Banic. “We will miss her. Fortunately, she also has left us with a strong, committed team of volunteers and a trove of amazing supporters, who rightly expect us to continue the mission and to expand it. We won’t disappoint them, or the animals who continue to need us.”

HAPPY ADOPTION DAY!! We are so excited that the Haag family chose to adopt and chose Bentley to complete their family. Bentley and their greyhound Taco were like long lost friends when they met!

Bentley is one of our 5 Smooth Collie/Greyhound mix puppies that we took in from an overcrowded Kentucky Shelter in August. We are so thankful to his foster mom Candice for getting him ready for his forever family!

His story, and the stories of each of the animals we rescue, are why we do what we do. And we could not do this work without the love and support of all of you. They thank you, and we thank you.
