5 kitties! Leeloo (pictured), Meatball, Tangerine Bangarang, Rouge, & Donut

The most rewarding thing about my job:

Saving lives! I love the triumphant moments where you get in a litter of sick kittens or an injured stray dog that's clearly seen better days, and then you see them leave with an excited foster parent, or watch their health turn around and help them get adopted. It's such a satisfying feeling.

When I’m not at work, I’m probably:

video gaming, reading books, exploring Philadelphia, or squeezing my foster kittens until they pop!
