Volunteer of the Month: Angeline Y.

Many people aren’t aware of Cat Town’s extensive foster network. There are a variety of reasons why a cat may be in a foster home; they might be recovering from an illness or surgery, they could be a cat who may not do well in our public Cat Zone space, or they could simply be decompressing from being in the shelter while they wait to be adopted.

Angeline Y. has been a rockstar foster since 2017. She chooses to focus on senior cats and cats with medical needs who may be passed over for younger, healthier cats. I talked with Angeline about her experience fostering for Cat Town and why she hopes others will consider opening their hearts to cats with special needs.

Volunteer of the Month: Shanti P.

Cat Town has an incredible team of dedicated volunteers, many of whom go above and beyond just a weekly shift. One such volunteer is Shanti P., who volunteers in our adoption center, as well as helps with the Forgotten Kitten Project and the recently launched case manager program, which offers advice and support to recent adopters of cats who may need a little more time to adjust to a new home. Shanti has also fostered several cats for Cat Town, and as a registered veterinary technician she’s been able to foster difficult medical cases.

I talked with Shanti about her recent Cat Town foster fail with Huey and why special needs cats like him make for extra special companions.
