There’s a new executive director at the Verde Valley Humane Society, the group that operates the Adopt For Life Center for Animals in Cottonwood.

Barbie Bridge, the new executive director of the Adopt For Life Center for Animals, plays with a cat named Scotch on Feb. 15. Bridge has been busy planning several upcoming fundraisers that she hopes will help the center continue operations.Barbie Bridge has taken on the position and is hoping to generate interest in planned fundraising efforts this year that the shelter depends on to maintain operations. The humane society’s board hired Bridge last month after a brief search following the resignation of former Executive Director Gary DeGeronimo at the end of 2012.

Bridge has called the Verde Valley home for decades and has some experience in running organizations, having served as director of the Camp Verde Chamber of Commerce about a decade ago.
