Debbie started working with us in 2019 after volunteering for a TNR event we were holding. Shortly after she decided to become a full time member of the SCRF team. She was never a “cat person” up until a few years ago as she’s always had dogs and wasn’t a fan of cats.
After her 2 dogs passed, she and her boyfriend decided they’d never get a pet again. This lasted 6 months until a stray little calico showed up on their street. They ended up taking her in and they fell completely in love with the her.
After bringing Pia inside, Debbie realized the desperate situation of the stray cats in her neighborhood and started trapping them to get them fixed and subsequently finding them rescues and adoptive homes.
In real life, Debbie works full time in the Investment Industry, has a dog named Luigi and cats of her own who all appeared on her doorstep through the years.
Debbie’s passion is to help the medically urgent cats that are found on the street in dire situations that a lot of other people shy away from. She is also our Medical Director and Fundraising Coordinator and works very hard creating new and fun ways to raise money for the medical care of these urgent cats.
