Siamese Cat Rescue of Virginia

MIDDLETOWN, CONNECTICUT (West Hartford News) - As a 14-year volunteer for Siamese Cat Rescue of Virginia, West Hartford resident Barbara Galin knows the full impact of the rescue on so many cats and people.

In the business of cat rescue, a lot of work goes on "behind the scenes" that adopters may not be aware of, said Galin. Here in New England, Galin works with "an amazing group of volunteers who share not only a love of the breed, but knowledge and expertise to help them."

The rescue cats are amazing, and each a unique mystery when they arrive, said Galin. The volunteers "act as detectives" to learn their stories. The goal of the center is that each cat is loved and eventually gets a loving home.

"As a cat foster mom, I look at the Siamese rescue cat gallery differently than most adopters. These cats are the ones that are lucky to be safe, warm, fed, and loved by their cat foster people," said Galin. "It is the ones still out there that we, as volunteers, work so hard to save."

Collectively, this "army of volunteers makes a difference," said Galin."We can't save them all, but we can save one at a time."

Interested volunteers with a computer, a love of cats, a desire to learn, and willingness to work as a team, can join the effort to help Siamese and Siamese-mix cats find new homes. Transporters, interviewers, evaluators, crafters, and foster families are needed.
