Longtime Grand Strand Humane Society director resigning

Sandy Brown has spent the last seven years among hundreds of dogs and cats.

Come Wednesday, she’ll hand over the reins as executive director of the Grand Strand Humane Society in Myrtle Beach to her son. Brown has been with the shelter since 2008 and is leaving to care for her husband who is recovering from surgery.

“It’s important for me to be with him over the next couple of weeks,” Brown said Tuesday. “I’m going to get him back on his feet.”

She leaves behind a legacy of stability, experience and love.
