Volunteer Spotlight

How did you first get involved with Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue? 

 

We trapped some cats in the alley behind my former work, one adult male was FIV+. After we tried for 3 months to find him a home we brought him to RMFR. It was important to find a shelter that would not euthanize him because of his FIV. Arnie found a great home and I found a great place to volunteer. 

 

With what shelter programs do you volunteer?

 

Since I have a soft spot for the scared and shy cats, the TLC program is a perfect match for me. It is very satisfying to work with a cat who starts out terrified and then help them gain confidence, become happy, and find a perfect home. I also work the bingo fundraiser twice a month.

 

How has the shelter changed?

 

The facility itself keeps getting nicer and nicer. I call it Disneyland for cats. I love that our cats are free roaming. The staff is caring, knowledgeable, and always helpful.

 

For how long have you been an RMFR volunteer? What keeps you involved?

 

It has been 3 years since I started volunteering at RMFR. I love helping the cats become more socialized and more adoptable. I love seeing them go to happy forever homes.

How did you first get involved with Rocky Mountain Feline Rescue? 

 

I was first introduced to RMFR when my friend Paige found it after we discovered a stray cat in our neighborhood - which unfortunately tested positive for FELV so I couldn't keep her with my other kids. RMFR was one of very few places that would even take FELV cats at that point. So I became a big supporter of John's room and the cats in it.  

 

With what shelter programs do you volunteer?

 

I volunteer doing maintenance and handy man projects around the shelter. Over the last few years, I have helped completely renovate the inside.

 

How has the shelter changed?

 

Years ago, when I first started coming to RMFR, they were only adopting out about 250 cats annually.  Most cats seemed to be there forever. These days the staff and volunteers work so well with customers to find the right homes for them. The number of Johns room kids that get adopted these days is just fantastic 

 

For how long have you been an RMFR volunteer? What keeps you involved?

 

I first started coming in in November 2009.  It took a few years before I become an official volunteer, but I was helping around the shelter since I started coming in. The continued growth and the ongoing improvements keep me wanting to help knowing that all the work gets more cats into homes.
