In Honor of Olive Nash

Olive Nash was CHAI’s first member and a dedicated supporter and contributor throughout her life. She could always be counted on to assist in the office, to staff outreach tables at conferences, attend demonstrations, write letters to Israeli government officials, and contribute financially to our projects. While we were campaigning to gain the right for animal ambulances to enter Israel customs-duty and tax-free, she frequently drove around the ambulance we sought to donate to keep the tires and battery in good working condition until we won the struggle and shipped the ambulance to a shelter in Israel. She drove our large mobile spay/neuter clinic over an hour away to the port in Baltimore to be shipped to Israel. There was nothing she wouldn’t do to help animals. She will be remembered for her fine character, high spirits, flawless work ethic, and boundless compassion.
