January 2016 – Volunteers of the month – Tina Ferkey and her family
Tina Ferkey and her family are the first family we’ve had that have volunteered to take on 10 ringworm kittens and cats at a time and stay the course on their treatment regimen – oral meds, lovely stinky lime-sulfur dips, litter box cleaning, extensive room cleaning, and fearless cuddling and socializing. Because of Tina and her family, many kittens with ringworm got their chance to be healthy and find their forever home.
In addition to her volunteer work with WCDC, Tina has undertaken a large and ongoing TNR project in her neighborhood – trapping, arranging spay/neuter surgeries, recovery and returning feral kitties to their colony, and rescuing kittens that can be socialized and adopted.
Tina is making a difference in the lives of many, many cats and kittens, as well as in the humans who know her and are grateful for her presence in their lives. Thank you Tina, and thanks to your family!
