Saving Cats Every Day!

"As a cat volunteer at Sarasota County Animal Services, I know how you have saved many cats (in transfer from us) over the years. I'd say you are the gold standard for compassion toward cats that are challenged in so many ways, and I can't thank you enough for all you do every day."

— God Bless, B.F., May, 2018

"Great things happen when humans are as caring and compassionate as animals are. This morning, our Volunteer Serv/SpEvent Coordinator, Dana, was asked by the son of a Hospice patient, to bring a cat to ManorCare so his mom could have one final memory of petting a cat and hearing one purr. Without hesitation, Dana, who is a former hospice employee of 11 years, was off with our boy, Cinco (who was found on Cinco de Mayo). It turns out that May 5th is the patients birthday too. Her son told Dana that his mom taught her children to be caring and compassionate to people and pets alike and they have done so all their lives."
