Melissa and Vaughn founded this organization out of a desire to help homeless animals. Melissa and Vaughn live in Bolton, CT with 5 dogs and 3 cats - all rescues. Melissa and Vaughn are usually the ones to meet potential adopters on the weekends.
Wanda is our adoption director and is usually the first person an adopter hears from! She is passionate about animals and does a great job being able to match the animal with the adopter. Wanda currently has 4 rescue cats (2 from Paws 4 Life).
Brittany is our foster director and works closely with all our fosters throughout the state of CT to make sure they have everything they need. Brittany also has a wealth of knowledge about vet care and is a critical part of our team.
Theresa is our Director of Operations! She does so much for the rescue - you name it - she does it! She spends numerous hours each week volunteering, researching and applying for grants, creating gift baskets for raffles, socializing the cats, doing laundry, and so much more!
What can we say about Bill (and of course his partner in crime Wanda)! Both Bill and Wanda help in so many ways - volunteer, transporter, answering emails, vet checks, home visits, bringing animals to vet appointments, and of course adopted Boomer! Boomer is the face of our rescue page!
Raj is also a very critical member of our rescue team. He comes each week to volunteer and taking pictures of the cats that we use on our social media outlets. Raj (and Theresa) have also adopted cats from Paws 4 Life that they fell in love with!
Social media is critical in getting our mission and our adoptable animals out to the public. Ashley helps promote our animals on various social media outlets. In addition to helping with our social media, she also volunteers time to socialize with our cats. Ashley and her husband adopted 2 cats from us! They have their very own Instagram page (mila.n.birch)
As we do not have a brick and mortar facility, we are only able to take in animals if we have a foster home that the animal(s) can hang out with until they get adopted. We have a number of fosters that help us on a regular basis!

We couldn't be successful without volunteers. We have a number of volunteers that help us on a regular basis!
Thank you -
Andrea (and her daughters Brianna and Emma), Janet, Pauline, Steve, Sharon, Sue, Bonnie, Michelle (and daughters Reagan and Sage)
Transporters are the lifeline of our rescue and help move animals from foster homes, vet appointments, and from various Animal Control facilities. Without their help, we wouldn't be able to help as many animals as we currently are.
Thank you -
Chris, Sarah, Lauren, Sue, Jen, and Jen
