Volunteer of the Month – December 2022
Congratulations to Patti Hansen, our December 2022 Volunteer of the Month!
Patti started volunteering initially doing medical record data entry and then as a cat socializer at Petsmart in 2021. This evolved into taking on the responsibilities of CRAN Cattery Manager at the South Petsmart cattery. Not only is Patti a cattery volunteer and cattery manager, she also finalizes adoption and continues diligently working in the background, helping with CRAN kitty medical records. Patti started volunteering after she retired “I retired at the end of June, 2021 and I knew I wanted to do volunteer work. I have been a passionate cat lover all my life so I did some searching on the Internet for cat organizations and found CRAN. The rest, as they say, is history.” When asked what she most enjoys about her volunteering, Patti replied “Well of course my love of kitties is what initially brought me to CRAN, but I also love that I have met so many wonderful people – other CRAN volunteers, adopters, fosters, PetSmart staff, visitors to the cattery. And I especially appreciate our socializing volunteer team at the PetSmart in south Eugene – they are AWESOME!”
Patti is a dedicated, multitasking volunteer with a love for animals, and a great love and compassion for our CRAN kittens and cats. Thank you for all you do for the cats Patti!
