Whitney Vachon

Board Member + Emerging Leaders Coordinator

A realtor at Waters Edge Realty Group at Keller Williams Lakes & Mountains Realty and a life-long lover of the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, Whitney joined the Board of Directors of New Hampshire Humane Society in early 2020. An avid animal lover, the first dog Whitney rescued was Sibbi. She was an older chocolate lab mix with a sunken-in head people always commented on. Whitney found Sibbi online while in a dark hole-in-the-wall bar with her boyfriend who is now her husband. Whitney fell in love with Sibbi instantly and immediately put in an adoption application. They went everywhere together - work, parties, hikes, swimming, house-watching gigs. Whitney’s second and current love is Harvey. He was adopted from New Hampshire Humane Society right after Hurricane Harvey. He is a Rhodesian Ridgeback/ Boxer mix and he came with lots of baggage. He is a love but only to people he knows and trusts. In addition to serving as a Board Member of New Hampshire Humane Society, Whitney also chairs the Emerging Leaders group for the organization and volunteers at the shelter a minimum of once a week. She takes dogs on outings to photograph and video them and highlight their personalities and why they should be adopted. Animal welfare is an important cause to Whitney and she wants to better the Lakes Region as well as strengthen the Humane Society.
