Marinna Orta is a 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award winner.
"Marinna is a foster parent for cats that have behavior issues, or felv+. She also takes on feral kittens (not an easy task).  No matter what issues her fosters develop (ringworm, spraying or scratching the furniture)she keeps them, works through their problems and then finds them wonderful homes. She’s trained to do adoptions, so they never have to come back to the shelter. She goes above and beyond for her fosters! Marinna fostered 19 cats in 2015. Way to go!"
