Founder and President
In April 2011, I wanted to do something for the greater good in honor of my birthday, so I decided to start volunteering at one of our local shelters. Little did I know how that decision would change me forever. From that day on, I have been actively working to improve the lives of feral cats.
My first step was founding LYFF later that year to give feral cats in shelters—who are typically relegated to euthanasia lists—a second chance at life as working barn cats. I’m proud to say that in more than a dozen years of operation, our barn cat program has saved and placed more than 3,000 working felines around San Diego County.
LYFF and I still have more we want to accomplish for our feral felines. One goal was to establish a TNR program started at that local shelter, which we helped establish. Another dream is that someday shelters would end the euthanasia of feral cats. We’ve helped make this true for one shelter, and we continue our efforts to make that change more widespread.
I’m proof that one person can make a difference, and LYFF is proof that collectively we can work together to accomplish incredible, amazing things—and save thousands of lives in the process. Let’s take this journey together to change the lives of as many at-risk cats as we can.
