Trumbull Animal Welfare League Names Shandor CEO

VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio – The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County has named Lorilyn Shandor as its new CEO.

Shandor, who has more than 15 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, will oversee the organization’s shelter operations, employee management and implementation of the league mission.

“The dedicated staff, volunteers, board members and donors have been so welcoming,” she said in a statement. “It is an inspiration to see their commitment to helping animals who come through AWL doors. I look forward to working with each of them as we continue to build upon the amazing work AWL has done for 50 years.”

The search for a new CEO took several months and drew candidates from across the country, said the Animal Welfare League board president, Robert Hotchkiss.

“We were deliberate in our search for our leader because we wanted someone who is not only truly committed to the animal welfare community but also has the drive and skills to make things happen,” he said in a statement.

Based in Vienna Township, the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County offers rescue services, microchipping, education courses, the Dogs in Prisons program, dog obedience classes and operates a dog park.
