Congratulations to Amanda M, our July Volunteer of the Month. Amanda does a wonderful job on the Monday shift; always caring, professional and gentle with the cats. Amanda has been volunteering since August 2009; she moved back to NYC last May and had time on her hands so thought it would be great to help others. KittyKind was recommended to her and she knew after reading the profile, it was an organisation she could support and wanted to be a part of. Her favourite part about volunteering is knowing that each week she makes a difference in the cats lives and ultimately on their future owner, she adds: ‘I also love how cute and cuddly the cats are and I can indulge in my love of being around cats, every time I go in.’ Amanda enjoys volunteering immensely; she looks forward to her Monday’s each week, and is glad she has the spare time to give. Amanda has always grown up with pets, she has got one cat: Marcello, who is very precious to her. She wants to say a big thank you to everyone at KK for being so caring and focused about this program. ‘I am honoured to be apart of the team.’ Thank you Amanda for all your dedication and hard work!
