“My degree is in graphic design, but after doing that for a while I realized I wanted to do something that made a difference. This is truly what I’m meant to do on this Earth,” said Jeffyne Telson (right) while cuddling some kittens alongside Erika Sacks, ResQcats’ longest volunteer. Telson and her husband started the non-profit organization 17 years ago and have been taking in and caring for stray and abandoned felines ever since. They also work to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering pets. “As of 15 minutes ago, we have adopted out 2,121 cats to new homes,” she added.
