“I love volunteering with the cats, because they all have as varying personalities as people do, sometimes delightful, sometimes challenging. In the many years I’ve worked with cats, I have yet to find any two alike!
You never forget your first success, and mine was years ago. She was a very young mama who’d had babies when she was barely more than a kitten herself. Scared and shy, she’d spent weeks at the shelter not allowing anyone to get close. With a lot of patience, she finally came out of her shell enough to be petted and find her forever home.
I would encourage others to volunteer, because the staff here is extremely welcoming, and it’s easy to see how much they care about the animals. Helping socialize the animals is so rewarding in itself, but the people we work with is just as important.”
