Review for Hearts That Purr Feline Guardians, Tucson, AZ, USA
As a Veterinary Technician and an animal lover--especially cats!--I want to applaud Jeanmarie and her organization Hearts That Purr. I have been doing volunteer work there for a couple of months. I was attracted to volunteering for this particular group because of the organization's 3-part mission: taking in elderly cats, helping people plan for their cats' care if the people are unable to care for them any longer, and matching senior cats for fostering by senior people. I am a firm believer in the healing power of animals.
I love volunteering there because the cats are so mellow and happy! The facility is fantastic! I wish I lived there--A large house, with about 10 rooms with large windows, all overlooking either a pretty courtyard or a patio and pool. They all have large rooms, tons of toys, their choice of many beds and hiding spots, scratching posts and kitty condos. The cats receive the best medical care I have ever seen at a rescue organization. The other volunteers are friendly, committed and I can tell they really care about each cat. They always share stories about previous cats and current resident cats.
This organization is purely positive and defines compassion by taking care of people and their beloved cats; and by taking on the care of abandoned elderly cats, oftentimes in poor health, that would otherwise no doubt simply be killed by a county facility.
A truly humane society takes care of its most vulnerable members. Hearts That Purr does just that.
