Volunteer of the Month – August

Taylor has been volunteering at Treetops since September 2017! She has a dog of her own, Comet, but her cats are here at the Café! She is our cat whisperer, she works very well with the shy cats that come in, especially the ones who hide under the steps! She also answers all of our customer questions regarding the cats and their personalities!

Her family has allergies, so she comes to volunteer here to get her kitty fix!
