NEW LEASH ON LIFE USA NAMES PENNSYLVANIA COMMUNICATIONS STRATEGIST TIM SPREITZER TO BOARD
PHILADELPHIA, PA- New Leash on Life USA today announced Tim Spreitzer of Tierney Communications will join its group of distinguished board members. New Leash on Life USA is a Pennsylvania-based non-profit dedicated to helping prison inmates train and care for rescued dogs.
Spreitzer is currently the Senior Vice President at Tierney Communications in Center City. He brings extensive communications and policy expertise to the board, having served as a top-level strategist for State Rep. Dwight Evans, Deputy Chief of Staff at the School District of Philadelphia, and as an Education and Workforce Policy Advisor for the Governor of Illinois. For the past several years, Spreitzer has been a proud “Big Brother” with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern PA.
Spreitzer is thrilled to bring his talents to New Leash on Life USA. “I am honored to join New Leash on Life USA’s board and their critical work,” Spreitzer said. “New Leash on Life USA has saved the lives of countless numbers of shelter dogs while helping improve the lives of numerous inmates. I could not be more excited to help support and expand their invaluable impact.”
New Leash on Life USA will benefit immensely from his continued commitment to service. The organization empowers prison inmates to train and care for rescued shelter dogs. New Leash transfers dogs directly from kill shelters and matches them with inmates who are responsible for their care around the clock. Inmates receive comprehensive reentry, job readiness, and animal behavior training through the program. The initiative improves the dogs’ sociability and adoptability, and helps prepare both humans and animals for fulfilling lives outside prison.
Spreitzer is the latest member to join the board. He will serve with former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell and the retired CEO of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Girl Scouts, Sharon Smith, among other dedicated and prominent individuals.
