Meet one of SDA's special volunteers

SDA would like to say, "thank you and meow" to EILEEN ENGBER!!

Having a wonderful sanctuary does not just happen! It takes a lot of hard work, love, compassion, money, and dedication by so many people who truly love SDA and the animals that live here. Our workers and volunteers go above and beyond for these precious animals... and we would like to acknowledge one of our long-time volunteers!

If we at SDA were asked to define loyalty, we would say, "Eileen Engber!!!"

For the past 12 (yes, 12) years, Eileen has come to our SDA sanctuary every Monday and works all day long in our catteries caring for 150 previously homeless resident cats. Eileen cleans litter pans, mops floors, feeds cats, gives medications and puts fresh laundry on places where our lazy cats lounge, sleep and hang out.

Eileen not only does all of these chores for the cats, but makes generous monetary donations as well. We often call upon her to transport cats to a veterinary clinic and she has even paid for the medical treatment for many of her favorite cats. Eileen has donated all of these services without fanfare for 12 long years and we are eternally grateful to her. Eileen Engber sets a pure example of loyalty and how to translate a love for animals into action. Thank you Eileen! SDA and the animals love you!
