Giving Back To The Pet Community
Cat care and animal wellness are my passion. Coming from a career in pet sitting and having a background in Animal Care, I’m drawn to organizations and causes that have ‘Animal Care’ as their fundamental purpose.
The following are some of the specific causes we’ve worked with and/or supported:
- The Kingston Animal Shelter
Located in Kingston Massachusetts, this local town shelter provides amazing support to the pets in the community. They have a clean and welcoming shelter for dogs and cats, a commitment to provide the best opportunities for the pets in their care, an active animal care fund and an affordable yearly rabies clinic to residents and non-residents. How I’m Involved: I personally volunteer writing press releases, producing videos and helping with outreach as needed on a yearly basis. View their adoptable pets
- Papa’s Pet Project
Located in Manomet Massachusetts, this organization rescues and saves cats and kittens by partnering with the Plymouth Animal Shelter, providing foster homes, veterinary care and just recently they opened a pet adoption center and non-profit pet supply store which supports the adoption center. This organization goes above and beyond to help cats and kittens in need and I’ve been honored to help when I can. How I’m Involved: Papa’s Pet Project has been the feature of my freelance work in pet health segments, and I’ve produced PSA’s for their benefit events, and most recently I created their website pro-bono.
