Volunteer Profile: Laurie P

What’s your story? Why did you first get involved with ACR?

I adopted Flurry from ACR and wanted to help. Also, Guru, my male cat likes having a play friend and fostering is a great way to keep him young and playful.

How are you helping now? What volunteer position are you filling? What does your work involve?

Foster care.

Laurie is fostering Kizi

Describe a real winning moment for you as an ACR volunteer.

Every time I place a foster in a new home.

Why do you think people should volunteer with ACR?

It’s rewarding to see the results of fostering and ACR goes above and beyond to support its volunteers and adopters. I can’t say enough about how supportive they were when Flurry took ill and didn’t recover.

In your opinion, what is the most important thing that ACR does?

Saves lives – both human and feline. Our pets rescue us as much as we do them.

What do you do when you aren’t volunteering with ACR? What’s your “real” job?

Non-profit fundraising and marketing.

Besides rescuing cats, what are some of your other hobbies?

Reading, hiking, outdoors.

Do you live with any ACR cats at the moment? Who and what is their back story?

Sadly no. Flurry was my only ACR cat and she passed away this winter.

What cat do you dedicate your volunteer work to and why?

Flurry – she was my constant friend and cuddler. I still miss her beautiful spirit.
