"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake.  Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way."      - Martin Luther King, Jr.

About Brenda

Brenda rescued her first cat when she was 7 and she hasn’t stopped since. Despite having a full-time job, she finds time to volunteer at low-cost spay/neuter clinics, to trap feral cats on a regular basis, to vet these animals, and transport 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.
