National Volunteer Week – Thank you Noni Vatish!
This #NationalVolunteerWeek, we are thanking volunteers all over Ontario who work tirelessly to help cats in need. Today, we say thanks to our Kitchen-Waterloo based foster parent – Noni Vatish.
I started volunteering with Toronto Cat Rescue nearly 10 years ago as a store volunteer. This was my way to help cats when I was unable to have a cat of my own. I thoroughly enjoyed that experience and quickly moved on to fostering cats and kittens in my home. Since then I have fostered countless kitties and in turn found a community with whom I share a common interest, loving cats. Being involved with this agency has been life-giving for both myself and those around me.
When I’m not volunteering with the rescue I am a Social Worker serving those who I consider to be the most vulnerable in society. The topic of my fosters and general involvement with Toronto Cat Rescue has helped me open so many doors with clients and for this I am incredibly grateful. Cats can unite people in magical ways and that’s why I feel so strongly about the work conducted by Toronto Cat Rescue.
