Rachel Shubin has been a friend ever since she interviewed me for her high school newspaper back in 2010. Her passion and compassion for animal welfare have always been evident to all who know her. Now a college freshman, Rachel continues her efforts on behalf of animals in need. Here’s Rachel’s mom, Julie, on why Rachel should be our inaugural “Homer’s Hero.”
Cats like Homer would never find their perfect "furever" homes if not for the kindness and persistence of a few dedicated "heroes." Every month, we like to highlight one of our favorite volunteers or rescue workers. If you know someone you'd like to nominate to be a "Homer's Hero," let us know!
