The Love-Hanning Family- Dustin and Lyndi Love-Hanning have been little kitten life savers and they are always ready for a kitty challenge! They've helped us raise THE most loving little feline companions which sets the kitties up for successful lives with their future families. We TOTALLY lucked out to get them onto our foster team!
Wanda McDonald- Wanda has been an amazing foster mom for our special dog fosters. She is caring, gentle, realistic, hopeful and she never gives up on her fosters....advocating for them until they are surrounded by the love of their new family. Whenever we need Wanda, she and husband Jim are there when we need them and boy are we thankful.
Libby Williams-Cabral- The face of AINF. So many of you know Libby, and to know her is to know her passion for saving lives. This organization would not be what it is today without her... Thank You, Libby!
Jodi Blanchard- Jodi can ALWAYS be counted on when we are in a tight spot and need safe and loving space for a foster. She has opened her heart and her home and we are so lucky to have her on our team... Thank You, Jodi!
Lynda Flynn- Lynda is our behind the scenes angel! She is up for anything and great at everything. It is such a comfort to know that when I call Lynda will be there and her answer will be a simple, "Yes, anything you need." Thank You, Lynda.
Janelle Wahl-Frisch- Janelle is another "Jill of all trades". Whether it is fostering (too many to count) or volunteering at an event she gives 100% all of the time. She is the only person I know who can make fostering neonate kittens look glamorous! Thank You, Janelle.
Annette Sheely- Annette's entire week revolves around spaying and neutering since she works as a surgery tech at Woods Humane Society as well as fostering cats through our SLO County Animal Services! So you can imagine our fortune that Annette's dedication still brings her to volunteer with our monthly Sunday feline spay/neuter clinics. Annette's passion for animals shines brightly and she is an expert at saving and raising neonate kittens. Those kittens are lucky and WE are lucky.
Helen Kanda- Helen Kanda has been there for us since the beginning and for a long while, she was our only cat foster. We would call and she would say "of course"! Always accommodating and able to help us with even the most nervous kitty rescues. Helen is one of the most gentle humans we've ever met and always gives these shy cats the chance to relax and learn how to be loved. Helen's home is a safe haven for our feline fosters and her sweet dog Cassidy is the perfect, respectful canine ambassador, helping these cats learn about and have positive experiences with dogs.
The reason many of these foster cats became adoptable (& now living in loving, forever homes) is because of Helen and her dedication.
