CATTY SHACK RANCH WILDLIFE SANCTUARY INC
September 13, 2013

I started volunteering a little over two years ago. I found Catty Shack Ranch on www.volunteermatch.org and visited for an afternoon tour. The people were very friendly and the animals looked well cared for. I decided to start volunteering and have enjoyed every day since I started.

The volunteers are the best group of people I have ever worked with. They all work toward one goal -creating a healthy, stress-free environment for the animals. We have ongoing construction and repair projects, an enrichment team that provides fun activities for the animals, and lots of general work to keep this facility operating. It is a labor of love for everyone involved.

My work includes cleaning enclosures, general maintenance, yard work, giving tours, and helping feed the animals. I love giving tours, introducing people to our residents and educating them about the different species. It is wonderful to see their amazement as they pass big cats lounging or playing.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more space so we could build more enclosures and rescue more animals.
