The 2018 Animal Heroes


Rennick and Dee Andreoli

Rennick and Dee Andreoli are pillars of the Akron philanthropic community and dedicated friends of animals at the Humane Society of Summit County. As the President of RDA Hotel Management Company, Rennick has owned and operated over 30 hotels including the Hilton Akron/Fairlawn, the longest continuously owned and managed Hilton franchise in the country.

The Andreolis have been supporting the Humane Society of Summit County in a transformational way for over twenty years. Most recently, they made a foundational contribution toward the construction of HSSC’s Hospitality Suite. This area of our shelter provides a dedicated, sanitary area for the feeding of all our resident animals; a break room for animal care staff; and an intake clinic where all newly arrived animals receive vaccines, preventative treatments, grooming, and basic veterinary care for their own health and to protect the health of our entire shelter population. This addition to our shelter has been invaluable to meeting the needs of our rescued animals, staff, and volunteers.

In addition to their dedicated investment in the Humane Society of Summit County’s facilities and in our rescue work through annual fund support, the Andreolis are well known for their charitable work across a variety of areas of need and have received numerous awards and recognitions for their commitment to making our community a better place, for people and animals. We are proud to honor them as Animal Heroes at our 50th Anniversary Pawsibility Ball!


Kerri L. T. Bowman and R. Mark Daye

Since moving to the area in 2005, Kerri L .T. Bowman and her husband R. Mark Daye, both veterinarians, have dedicated their volunteerism and philanthropy to improving the lives of animals in need in Summit County. Their contributions have seen the Humane Society of Summit County through periods of transformation and have improved our services in immeasurable ways.

Kerri L. T. Bowman became involved first as a volunteer and donor, then as a member of the Humane Society of Summit County Board of Directors. As a Board Member, Kerri was instrumental in the transition of the shelter from its former location on Quick Rd. to our current home in Twinsburg. At our new facility, Kerri led the establishment of the veterinary clinic which enabled our organization to provide a breadth and quality of veterinary care to our animals never achieved before. R. Mark Daye, a privately practicing veterinarian at Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital, has continually supported our medical needs by donating specialty care to ill or injured animals in critical need.

We are so grateful for the continued support and dedication to animal rescue and rehabilitation Kerri and Mark have demonstrated and are proud to honor them at our 50th Anniversary Pawsibility Ball!
