For the love of the animals
PAWSitively S.A.F.E. was founded in 2016, by Julie Rasmussen and Holly Cuciz; both cat rescue volunteers who practice TNR of community cats, as well as running a foster program for homeless cats and kittens, getting them ready for permanent placement with their rescue partners and in forever homes. They were concerned by the high number of homeless cats and kittens, and about reducing the number of healthy cats being euthanized in their local shelters. They formed PAWSitively S.A.F.E. in order to achieve more positive outcomes for animals on the streets and in the shelters.
