Tana has always had a special place in her heart for animals, and now that her children are grown and grandchildren abound, she felt the pull to volunteer to help the animals she has loved her entire life.
Although partial to dogs, Tana has found her place helping with the kitties. After attending her first adoption event, she was quickly drawn in by the kitties and the wonderful people that stopped by to pet, hold, love and talk about their own animals, present and past.
She now oversees the care of hundreds of kittens that make their way to the Josephine County Animal Shelter and into foster homes. From bottle babies to bouncing kittens awaiting their spay/neuter appointment, the options for fostering are limitless! Interested in becoming a feline foster family? She’d love to talk with you!
Tana has two children and seven grandchildren. Two little dogs, Lina and Shelby, a new puppy named Ivy, and four cats, Missy, Piper, and Theo all manage to live together!
