December 9, 2021 Women Excelling Monthly Meeting

Women Excelling is proud to present special guest speakers Lauren Pignetti and Chelsea Cappellano from Humane Pennsylvania. Humane Pennsylvania is a leader in animal welfare and through its innovative approaches and ideas has taken the model of sheltering and community work to the next level. The animal welfare industry has always been guided by females, and while Humane Pennsylvania is primarily women based, it is a true team of innovators and thinkers that make our organization successful.

Humane Pennsylvania’s Healthy Pets Initiative (HPI) is a local, but nationally recognized effort in providing the necessity of food, vaccines, and other support that every pet needs to be happy and healthy. The concept is simple, it delivers preventative and wellness services to 100% of pets in need, no questions asked. We achieve this goal by offering pay-what-you-can vaccine clinics in convenient locations throughout the service area, offer microchips, as well as spay/neuter services, and provide food through Spike’s Pet Pantry. This commitment to the health and welfare of the people and pets in our community ensures that we are building the best community anywhere to be an animal.

Lauren attended Penn State University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Journalism and a minor in Event Planning, She received her Principles of Fundraising certification from Villanova University in 2015. She has a vast knowledge of event development, fundraising, marketing and social media strategies, corporate relations, as well creating meaningful donor experiences. She previously served on the board of Paws and Affection, which trains dogs to become working service animals for those with special needs.

Chelsea strives to create meaningful relationships and experiences through fundraising, donor relations, and partnerships throughout the community. Although Humane Pennsylvania is the first non-profit organization she worked for, she previously served on the board of One Love Project from August of 2019 through October 2021.
