Hannah Tostensen

retired in June of 2004 from a twenty-seven year career in education, the first half spent as a classroom teacher in Coastal Georgia. In the latter half, Hannah held high-level leadership positions in educational administration that included a seven-year tenure as Superintendent of the McIntosh County Public Schools and a three-year stint in Atlanta with the University System of Georgia/Board of Regents. She earned graduate degrees in her field, including a doctorate in Curriculum and Instructional Supervision from the University of Georgia.
An ardent animal advocate since childhood, Hannah began putting her passion to work for them in1994 when she co-founded HART of Darien-McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team, Inc.), a local grassroots animal welfare organization. In 2007, she co-founded GVAW (Georgia Voters for Animal Welfare), a statewide network of citizens using their voices and their votes to improve animal protection legislation.
From 2007-2012, Hannah served as a volunteer Board and Executive Committee member for the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia. She resigned that appointment to focus her energy on HART, who took over the day-to-day operations of McIntosh County Animal Services in Darien on October 1, 2012. HART's overarching goals in this challenge are to check companion animal birthrates, reduce shelter intakes, gradually end the killing of healthy, treatable animals and serve as a resource/education center countywide.
Hannah has lived on The Ridge, an historical community located three miles outside of Darien, Georgia, in the same home for over forty years. She has infected her husband of thirty-three years, Andy, with her passion for animals and they currently care for nine rescued mutts and a once-feral cat who sleeps with them every night!

Hannah Tostensen, director of the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia, and Lisa Norton, president of Citizens for Humane Animal Treatment in Brunswick, complained to Bealls' corporate office in Bradenton, Fla., earlier this month after finding replicas of Vick's No. 7 jersey being sold at stores in Darien and Waycross in southeast Georgia.

"It is unfathomable to me that any reputable store would market an item that symbolizes the heinous crime of dogfighting," Tostensen wrote in an e-mail to Bealls.

The successful adoptions led HART founder Hannah deSoto Tostensen to send an e-mail asking residents in McIntosh and Glynn counties to contact the McIntosh County Commission to complain about Huvar's ban on photographing the animals.

"The director [Keough] answers to no one but one person - Luther Smart, the county administrator," Tostensen said.
McIntosh County pays a minimum of $35 to kill a shelter animal that is not adopted, Tostensen said.
"Nine million animals are killed in shelters each year," she said.
