The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) in Bingham Farms has announced Doug Plant and Andy Seltz to join their team. Plant will serve as senior vice president and COO, while Seltz takes the role of vice president of field services and community outreach.

 

Plant, with more than 20 years of executive leadership experience, will be responsible for three animal shelters, and veterinary clinics serving the pets and communities of Detroit, Rochester Hills, and Westland, and community engagement. He has previously served as executive director for American Diabetes Association of Michigan and vice president of operations, fund development, and community engagement for United Way.

 

“I’m delighted to be a part of the MHS team and have an opportunity to move the mission forward,” says Plant. “It’s clear that this incredible organization is dedicated to continuous improvement and to being as effective as possible. I’m looking for ways to integrate functions and capabilities, maintain best practices, and identify and close any gaps that may exist.”

Seltz previously served as director for Livingston County Animal Control. In his new role, he will be responsible for day-to-day operations of the rescue, cruelty investigation, dispatch teams, oversight of MHS’ new statewide services program, and community outreach.

 

“My entire career has been about eliminating animal cruelty and giving voice to the voiceless,” says Seltz. “My goal is to extend the influence of the Michigan Humane Society by creating strong cross-functional teams that better reflect  the many ways this organization achieves the three pillars of its mission, which are compassionate care, animal advocacy and community engagement.”
