Gary Poon, Executive Director

 

Gary Poon has been part of the Houston Humane Society for 22 years and now serves as the organization's Executive Director. His family immigrated to the USA in 1998 and he graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Finance. Gary worked for most of his years at HHS as the Finance Director, and with time proved skilled in nonprofit management, fundraising, and strategic planning.
 
As Executive Director, Gary's personal mission at HHS is to end animal cruelty, overpopulation, and grow and improve the organization's programs such as humane education, community outreach, adoptions and maintain a high-quality low-cost animal wellness clinic for the public. 
 
With the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gary quickly responded to the financial impacts felt upon the community of pet owners in Houston, TX and started a free pet food program called the Pet Pantry. Since mid-March 2020, the Pet Pantry has given over 220,000 lbs of pet food to pet owners in need in Houston, TX and surrounding areas, keeping thousands of pets with their owners and out of shelters.
