Volunteer Board of Directors

Louanne Koch
President
My first cat was a “free” kitten from a farm in Creswell. Not free for long, with spay surgery, vaccinations, food and medical care through a long spoiled cat life. I started volunteering as a cat foster parent thinking “how difficult could this be?” (hahaha) and since 2010 have fostered somewhere between 400 – 500 cats and kittens. Short-term, long-term, old, young, scared, friendly, big, small, sick, healthy. Some have become foster “failures” and are forever members of our family. As a member of the Board of Directors for Cat Rescue & Adoption Network, I have the opportunity to help with the ongoing behind-the-scenes efforts that keep CRAN working. I have been privileged to get to know some wonderful kind-hearted and committed people through this group. Someday maybe, we will no longer have the need for animal rescue volunteer work. In the meantime, it’s one cat or kitten at a time, one step at a time; just like the starfish story, making a difference for this one and that one.

I first learned about CRAN when I wandered into the Petsmart cattery on Chad Drive in August of 2017. The volunteer at the time recruited me to clean cages and socialize kittens. As a lifelong cat lover, I jumped right in. From there, I became an adoption counselor and then transitioned to the medical team, treating ringworm and socializing feral cats. I am now helping treat ringworm cases in our new medical facility—this is something I am passionate about because ringworm should not be a death sentence, it’s a treatable fungus. I also foster feral nursing Mamas and their litters. I look forward to serving on the board of directors and continuing to support this amazing group of volunteers who dedicate their time and resources to helping cats and kittens in need.

One of my coworkers came up to me and said, I hear you like cats, since that time I have been a CRAN volunteer.  I worked at our medical facility cleaning feeding and medicating the cats.  Eventually I began to foster the need is so great and especially for medically needy cats. I have loved cats all of my life.  When I was in middle school I worked in a cattery, I learned so much then and even more when I worked for a veterinarian.  I now as part of the medical team for CRAN, I learn new things every day.  I am also often a resource to help figure out behavioral issues with the kitties.  CRAN is a great organization with so many incredibly talented caring people.
