Sharon has attended AZBHR functions with her first Basset Hound Bogart, since the rescue was started back in 1998. In 2017, Sharon was appointed to the Vice President position, which handles Intake for the rescue. This can be a full-time job in-and-of itself so Sharon asked Karen Sellers to work side-by-side to create an intake team to oversee the dogs coming into the rescue and the dogs currently being fostered. Now, in 2018, Sharon has accepted the challenge of President leading the rescue planning events and growing the flock of volunteers.
When not working on rescue activities, Sharon works full-time as a Pediatrician, and is a wife and mother of two boys. The Novy family has 4 dogs – 3 Bassets (of course!) which are all AZBHR alums.
