I have loved and had cats in my life from the time I was born. Over 10 years ago I decided to volunteer at a local animal shelter helping socialize shy and traumatized cats. I continue to volunteer on the Cat Behavior Team for the same shelter.
In 2019, I became a Certified Feline Training & Behavior Specialist (CFTBS) and in 2020 received certification as an Advanced Feline Training Professional (CAFTP).
I provide temporary foster care for CCCR cats who require behavioral support and/or medical care prior to being placed in sanctuaries or adopter's homes.
I believe shelters and rescues can work together to save more lives. Not every shelter or rescue can help every animal, yet I am firmly committed to practicing and helping bring about Fear Free standards of care for all sheltered cats.
An animal facing euthanasia in one setting, may receive medical treatment, time to socialize or be given hospice care in another. In partnership, I believe we can find more cats loving homes
Cats have always been an important part of my life. About 13 years ago, I visited a local shelter and knew I wanted to help, so I started my volunteer career.
I came to realize that while the shelter helped many cats, there were others it could not. I wanted to find a way to help these cats.
The best way to help cats facing euthanasia in a shelter is to get them to outside rescues and sanctuaries. I am dedicated to making sure rescues who save lives receive the assistance they need to make medical and quality of life decisions in the best interest of the cats.
