"I enthusiastically nominate Liz Taranda for Purina's Volunteer of the Year! A sampling of what Liz does: Interviews, trains and schedules volunteers to clean, feed and socialize our shelter cats twice a day, every day; Oversees all medical and Spay neuter of each cat; Interviews homes to find the best match for each cat; Makes sure we always have the necessary supplies; Seeks out Foster homes when space is tight; Maintains Petfinder and a local TV showcase of adoptable cats; Spearheads much of the annual fundraising so that no cat is denied any extras; Educates the public; She makes every decision from a POV of what's best for the cat. What she doesn’t do is quit. Liz does all this, for over 10 years now--and does it pleasantly--because she can see the difference she is making; She Is the sort of volunteer that is one in a million."
