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.
When did you start volunteering at Catty Shack? I started volunteering October 2012.
How did you start volunteering at Catty Shack? Originally I came with a volunteer group for the first time to check things out. Since my retirement I was thinking about working with animals again on a volunteer basis. Since I was 17, I have been around different animals (cats, horses, elephants, polar bears) for many years working with the circus in Germany and was looking for an opportunity.
What has been your favorite moment(s) at Catty Shack so far? My favorite moment at Catty Shack is each time I come to “work.” First thing in the morning I get to feed and interact with the horses. Not that I don’t like the cats, but horses and elephants are first on my list.
Thank you, Reinhard, for everything you do at Catty Shack!
