I've been volunteering at RAPS since 2006 after I heard about it from one of my friends who was volunteering there at the time.
I don't have any cats at home, my mom is allergic and my dad thinks their only use is for catching mice on the farm which is one of the main reasons why I volunteer at RAPS.
My second all-time favourite cat is Hannah and she's absolutely adorable.
ChesterI would love to see young people continue to volunteer even after they finish their volunteer hours for school, as it’s a fun environment to be around and plus, you get to be around cats all the time. If a donor offered a lot of money I wish we could be adding a state-of-the-art veterinary wing complete with staff so that the RAPS staff don't have to constantly drive across town to the vets.
