My journey into rescue began when two of my cats passed away within 30 days of each other back in early 2009. I was heartbroken and decided to look for a couple more cats to adopt. I found a couple cats and more! I then realized how many cats needed homes and there were not enough people to help them.
I have a love of photography of animals, so I decided to put that to good use, and I started volunteering my time. That was almost 5 years ago. I now do photography of our cats and dogs, and help admin our online Petfinder and Adopt-a-Pet listings for our pets needing homes. I also admin our new Facebook page.
From when I was a little girl, I always had a cat in my arms, so it is no surprise that at some point in my life I would be working with animals. Cats provide me peace from a very stressful job. Working with FFAR has been such a rewarding experience, and I look forward to volunteering for many years to come.
