Lauren LOVES Cats!! She is owned by a cat named Holly who has Lauren wrapped around her little grey paw. Lauren has been volunteering at Anderson Animal Shelter in South Elgin, IL since 2010 as a “cat socialization mentor”. She is in charge of “mentoring” each new volunteer. She gives them an hour long tour/presentation of “Cat Country”, as it is referred to, and talk to them about many things, including:
- How to handle a cat & cat body language
- The adoption fees & adoption process at Anderson
- How to socialize with a cat
- How to clean cages
- How to talk to potential adopters
Lauren often enjoys using the shelter cats as her subjects for her photography hobby. She posts her photos on the Anderson Animal Shelter’s Facebook page to help catch potential pet owners eye. In March 2012 Lauren was inspired to blog about her experiences as a volunteer and mentor at the animal shelter. Her friend Kathy, who also volunteers at the shelter, started her own blog about her volunteer experiences. Lauren thought it was a brilliant idea and wondered why she hadn’t thought of doing so herself. Lauren created” Peace, Love Adopt”, a blog documenting her life & experiences at the animal shelter. http://www.peaceloveadopt.info/
