Volunteer of the Month – October

Magdalena Reilly

Magdalena joined our cat rescue group in July 2018 visiting the singleton cats placed at our Petco partner just north of Valley River Center within biking distance from her home. These are often Special Needs kitties that take a careful hand and heart to soothe. She quickly earned her 10-hour CRAN t-shirt just a month later and has been going strong ever since. She trained as an adoption counselor and, in October 2018, took on the vital job of transcribing veterinary medical records into the master ID sheet in a job share role. She has welcomed new volunteers to spend time with the Petco cats and also trained her replacement for the vet records job, documenting the process and improving the success of those to follow. Always willing to say whenever possible, we are so pleased to have Magdalena recognized as the October 2019 Volunteer of the Month.
