Hello Cheryl (Introducing our Amazing Cats in Tow Volunteers)

Cheryl-Caliope 05-30-14

This is a photo of Cheryl and the beautiful and friendly calico Caliope. Cheryl is the definition of a rockstar volunteer. She began volunteering for the Cats in Tow program and Mutts-N-Stuff small dog rescue in July 2012 and is coming up on her two year anniversary with us. At home, Cheryl has three cats and one special needs dog, who needs insulin shots twice a day. One of the cats that lives with Cheryl and her son Mathew is Babygirl. Cheryl and Mathew took Babygirl in for long-term foster care so that Babygirl could leave the shelter environment.

Cheryl is an extremely hard worker! She has two businesses: a cleaning service and a resale business for designer items. On top of her busy schedule, she has four kids and a new grand baby. Cheryl is undeterred by her hectic life, still finding time to volunteer with Cats in Tow. On top of being a cage cleaner and socializer, Cheryl is also in charge of washing all of the laundry that comes from the shelter. Her upbeat personality brings positive energy into the shelter. We are so lucky to have her with us!

Thank you for everything you do, Cheryl!

Hello Harold (Introducing our Amazing Cats in Tow Volunteers)

Correction! Apologies to Harold for the incorrect title.

 Harold has been dedicating his time to volunteering with kitties who are in need of forever homes for more than 5 years. He has been with the Cats in Tow Program since we started at the Brea Petsmart in March 2012. Despite the fact that Harold has five cats of his own, he still finds the time to commit a couple of hours a week to working at our shelter. Harold has patiently worked with all of our cats and has improved many of their behaviors through positive social interaction. He is very good at letting them warm right up to him. Harold even stops by the shelter on days when he doesn’t have a volunteer shift, but just happens to be in the store getting food for his own kitties.

In this photo, Harold is sitting with our shelter diva Creamsicle. He always keeps an eye out for all of our precious fur balls and for that we couldn’t be more thankful to have him on our team! His heart is truly there for the cats.

Thank you Harold for being a devoted and enthusiastic volunteer!

Hello Andie & Joe (Introducing our Amazing Cats in Tow Volunteers)

AndienJoe_mar17

Andie & Joe are grad students who work as a pair! Andie heard about Cats In Tow through her very good friend Amy, who happens to be our Cage Cleaner Coordinator. Andie came in to help out and fell in love with our kitties. She and Joe have been volunteering with us since the first part of December. Even with a cat and a dog at home, they say they have learned to have lots of patience when interacting with the cats. Because as we all know, nobody tells a cat what to do or when to do it! Their summation: “Cats are great!”

We could not agree more. Thank you Andie and Joe. We and the cats appreciate your patience!

Hello Jazelle (Introducing our Amazing Cats in Tow Volunteers)

Jazelle, a high school freshman, loves all animals but feels that cats relate better to her and vice versa. Her volunteering goal is to win the Mayors Award which is awarded after 150 hours of volunteer service during your four years of high school. She has been volunteering for a little over a month on the weekends. She is learning to understand cat behavior so she can entice them into and out of their cages as needed. Jazelle is a true animal lover with two dogs and a cat at home.

Understanding cats is a valuable skill indeed, Jazelle. Thank you for sharing your skill with Cats in Tow!
