I am a Licensed Veterinary Technician and have been rescuing animals for as long as I can remember. My mother was the local dog warden when I was a child and I was able to experience how special homeless pets are as we often fostered them. Through years of hard work and dedication, I am finally able to open the doors to a small, private, non-profit rescue where I am able to house and care for homeless and injured animals and find them their forever homes. I work with many of the local shelters when they need an extra helping hand. All animals in my care receive the excellent veterinary medical care they deserve and all adoptive homes need to be able to continue to do the same. Veterinary references are required.

As Head Veterinary Technician and Office Manager of the West End Veterinary Office, I have the opportunity to work with the best medical team in the area to give these animals the best chance for a long healthy life.

I also have given a permanent home to some cats with terminal illnesses such as Feline AIDS, Leukemia and cancer. At Blissful Strays they will live out the remainder of their shortened life NEVER having to worry about needing a warm bed, food or love again!

I have adopted 2 feral cat colonies that I have been caring for, for the past 6 years. I have spayed/neutered/dewormed and vaccinated many of these cats and gotten homes for the kittens I have been able to catch! I provide them with insulated shelters for the winter and food all year long!!

One of my many goals in animal welfare is to educate the public on the amazing human-animal bond. We all know the statistics that a cat can reduce your stress levels and therefore your risk of heart attack, but did you know that by adopting you are allowing theses fabulous felines to live a longer healthier life too? A cat on the street only has a life span of up to 5 years. Some of this life is battling starvation and disease. A cat in a shelter type situation is at higher risk for disease and infection due to the numerous new cats being added regularly. They are at higher risk for medical conditions caused by increased stress levels caused from constant change to their environment. You can add about 10-15 healthy years to a furry, friendly feline's life just by providing a loving home and proper preventative veterinary care. Ahhh, there is nothing like having a purring ball of fur cuddle up with you after a long day at work!!

Keep your donations local this holiday season and know they will go to help the STRAYS in your OWN community!! Please donate today!! 100% of your donation goes right to the care of these wonderful animals!!
