MEET OUR TEAM
We Are A Network. MEET OUR TEAM!!
We are a network, therefore we do not adopt. As our names implies, we help network cats and dogs from Northern fly in communities to Southern Ontario.
If you are interested in adopting a cat or dog, please visit our The NRN Facebook Page where we will post what organization the cat or dog is going to, and follow their page.
VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
Vanessa has been with Northern Reach Network actively fostering with cats/kittens for around a year. Vanessa and her husband have two cats of their own, siblings who they adopted from a family friend. Miss Jellybean who is a hair tie loving torty. She LOVES attention, but of course doesn’t let just anyone see she’s love attention. Pippin is their ‘little’ chunkasaurus who loves laser pointers, cuddles, and making beautiful throat biscuits while suckling on your ear lobe. ‘About a year ago I found a third cat that I wanted to add to our family. My husband said “no more cats, but… you’ve been talking about fostering”. So I went upstairs and applied to NRN that night! Few days later we had our first foster.’ Since their first foster Vanessa has gone from using their spare bedroom to building an entire Foster Kitty room in our basement! Lovingly nicknamed ‘The Poop Factory’ We asked Vanessa why do you love do foster? ‘My husband and our late cat got me hooked on loving cats. Now I can’t stop wanting to help them all find cuddly and safe homes.’
A couple sentiments from some of Vanessa’s peers who nominated her:
She such a great asset to Northern reach. It has been really awesome having her on our team.
