Heather and Kimberlie
Heather Ann Smith'slove and adoration for all cats (both wild and tame) as well as her wonderment of all animals. Instilled a passion at an early age to be a guardian to animals and demand that each animal be treated with love, honor and compassion.
Two years ago a Mama cat and her 3 kittens showed up on Heather's back porch, her first mission was to try to find homes for the kittens. When that turned out to be unsuccessful Heather and her neighbor (Kimberlie Hamilton) realized that it was only a matter of time before they all needed to be fixed. A serendipitous path led Kimberlie and Heather to FixNation.org- a non-profit organization committed to cats, and to supporting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
Heather and Kimberlie's experience with FixNation was so remarkable but to their surprise there was very little was known publicly about FixNation and their TNR efforts.
*It became clear to Heather that what was needed was an Educational Platform that will reach the mass population and educate the proper ways to manage feral colonies in their own communities by Promoting the use of TNR. Protecting the vital resources that are available to each of us in our communities and promoting them to the public.
