About Brenda

Brenda rescued her first cat when she was 7 and she hasn’t stopped since. In addition to running BCR, she volunteers at low-cost spay/neuter clinics, traps feral cats on a regular basis, vets these animals, and transports them to and from vet appointments. She also works to educate the public about animal welfare and the importance of spay and neuter through speaking engagements and press interviews. Whether you meet Brenda in the field catching a cat or read about her in the media, her passion for animals is evident.
