Every month, the Catty Shack Board of Directors decide on a Volunteer of the Month to give an extra special “thank you” to. Every one of our volunteers is special to us and we are thankful for all of them – without our volunteers, Catty Shack would not be where are today! If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, check out our volunteer page.
The following is a spotlight on this month’s “Volunteer of the Month”. Enjoy!
When did you start volunteering at Catty Shack? February 15, 2012
How did you start volunteering at Catty Shack? I had read about Catty Shack and brought some visiting family members out in January 2011. At that time I was very recently retired and still too exhausted to want to do anything. I had said I wanted to volunteer after I retired but just wasn’t ready then. A year later, I visited on the first day the cubs were out in public and I was hooked. I attended the next volunteer meeting and started volunteering two weeks later, right after I finished the half-marathon.
What has been your favorite moment(s) at Catty Shack so far? Picking a single favorite moment is just not possible. I love all the animals but must confess that the tigers are my favorites. Being able to work in such close proximity to these amazing animals just makes everything right with my world. I have always considered myself a “cat” woman and this experience has just added an unbelievable dimension to that part of me.
Thanks, Wynne, for everything you do at Catty Shack!
