Volunteer of the Month – October

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012 0 COMMENTS

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? I started volunteering in July 2012.

How did you start volunteering at Catty Shack? I first heard about Catty Shack through HandsOn Jacksonville, an online volunteer resource. I learned all about the facility and its residents on the fabulous Catty Shack website and knew I had to be a part of the volunteer team!

What has been your favorite moment(s) at Catty Shack so far? It’s so hard to pick a favorite moment because there are so many great moments, but it would have to be the first time I saw Sarah in her pool. She was almost completely submerged – her ears were flat against her head and just her two wild eyes peeped at me over the rim of the tub. She was stalking me! It was so wonderful to have that interaction with her and to see first hand a tiger’s playful spirit. I will never forget it!


Thanks, Liz, for everything you do at Catty Shack!
