The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Executive Office Bldg Auditorium at 101 Monroe St.
Healey, former executive director of the Washington Humane Society, is now director of the Montgomery County Police Animal Services Division/Montgomery County Animal Services and Adoption Center. She will oversee a new, $17-million animal shelter being built at Muncaster Mill Road and Airpark Drive in Derwood. Scheduled to open in January, the building is more than three times the size of the existing facility in Rockville, which has been run by the Montgomery County Humane Society.
“With the opening of the new Animal Services and Adoption Center, we have before us a great opportunity to better serve the people and animals of Montgomery County, and to become a recognized leader in humane governance and animal care,” Healey said when her appointment was announced in September.
