My name is Kim Sauer, and I’m the current Vice President at The Meriden Humane Society (MHS).


I was raised in Norwalk (Ct.) and moved to Meriden in 2005 where I raised my Son.  He is a 2019 Graduate of Maloney Highschool and is now at UCONN in the School of Business.  I have been employed with United Health Care for the last 25years where I work as a Project Manager in the Claims Operations & Benefit Installations Department.  I oversee several new Product & Program initiatives as well as manage multiple Automation Projects aiming to streamline and simplify the overall Case Implementation process.  I am also the proud mom of 4 MHS Alumni; Ellie and Copper (Dogs) and Dunkin and Cole (Cats).  My first rescue; Whisky… was a Black Lab/Golden mix.  We rescued him when he was 8 weeks old from the West Haven Animal Shelter and he will forever be my inspiration for rescue. 


I enjoy staying busy, so while not working or helping with the Humane Society, I also enjoy Photography, Crochet, Reading, Cooking/Baking…. and also remain on the Executive Board for The Maloney Marching Band/Music Department Boosters LLC. 


My affiliation with The Meriden Humane Society started 11 years ago.  During my time with MHS, I have assisted in just about every facet of the organization; including holding the President and Secretary titles.  MHS for me; has always been a place to recharge.  It has been my go-to space for those times when I need purpose.  Helping the animals; either in our care or those yet to come to us, has become bigger than I could’ve ever imagined.  My personal goal; simply put -  is to ensure we; as an organization, provide every opportunity for animals to live out their best lives.  (There is SO MUCH that goes into that ‘simple’ statement!)


I am fully committed to the Mission of MHS.  I know that mission can not be achieved by one person.  I am a huge proponent of team work, so for that reason – I am so grateful for the incredible team of Staff, Volunteers, Donors, Rescue Partners and Board Members MHS has.  It literally takes a village, and I am forever grateful for the powerful and dedicated MHS community.
