Paula Yocum is a 2016 Volunteer Recognition Award winner."Paula has been with Animal Services since August of 2007. She transports animals to partnering agencies, volunteers in surgery, fosters unsocial, Felv+, medical, hospice cats and some with upper respiratory infections. During kitten season she fosters feral kittens to socialize, so they can become adoptable and live in loving homes. Paula is trained to do adoptions, so her fosters never come back to the shelter. In 2015, she fostered 44 cats and a rabbit or 2! Every week you know Paula will be at the shelter helping someone.  We are so lucky to have her."
