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.
