We truly appreciate the hard work our Board of Directors do. From making policy decisions to writing grants, they do it all.
Linda Milner, President~
In her previous life as an administrative assistant, Linda learned the organizational skills that enable her to handle our Spay/Neuter Hotline. With up to 50 calls per week, it is a full-time job for this JCSNF co-founder. All volunteer, of course.
Kathleen Shaw Hart, Secretary~
Lifelong animal lover Kathy Hart moved to Merlin from Huntington Beach about five years ago. Recently widowed, Kathy today is “mom” to a cat and a perky puppy. She describes herself as “mostly a cat person” but she went exotic at one point with a litter of chameleons. “Baby chameleons do a little jig before they take a step forward … it was so fun raising those beautifully colored lizards, and watching them all do their little jigs as they learned to walk.” She records all the jigs of the JCSNF Board at our quarterly meetings and provides common sense commentary at critical moments!
