What inspired you to connect with this organization?
As founder and director of GiveMeShelter, I realized the alarming number of adult and senior cats that fall thru the cracks in our shelters. Overlooked by the public and not supported by the broken shelter system. Sort of looking out for the underdog.
I officially adopted my first cat in 1993. Always have been a “dog”person. Fell in love with their amusing antics, independence, and conditional loyalty, which I grew to respect. Completely opposite of dogs, whom I still share my home with.
My favorite aspect of rescue is finding a loving home for a cat that everyone claims was unadoptable. To see the humane, unselfish side of people who take on these kitties and dedicate their love and compassion to these animals. It’s a win-win. Strengthening the Human /animal bond. There’s a home for every animal and we enjoy helping make that special connection.
