Romina Rasmussen began volunteering with SLCO Animal Services in November of 2013. She was one of the first volunteers in our kitten nursery here at SLCO Animal Services.
The kitten nursery was a 24/7 project that took a lot of dedication from volunteers and staff members. It requires around the clock care for bottle babies that come into the shelter environment and need to be fed every 2 hours. Once the kitten nursery moved locations Romina decided not only to continue her help with the kitten nursery but to also become one of the Cat Crusaders.
Romina has helped with photographing our cats to help them with their chances at adoption. She has helped at adoption events, vaccine clinics, participated as a vendor at Petapalooza and has even transported a dog or two to K9 Lifelines for daycare.
Besides participating in the many events at the shelter, Romina fosters some of our bottle-fed kittens that come into the shelter and need extra help to thrive.
Romina has also donated her delicious baked goods from her business, Les Madelines, to many of our events for children, volunteers, and staff to enjoy. Romina is a wonderful example of what volunteering/fostering is all about.
