An Interview with Julie Tipton
When and how did you start volunteering for Forgotten Cats?
I became aware of Forgotten Cats when my mom adopted a cat named Violet from the PetSmart-Brandywine Town Center. I had been wanting to volunteer helping cats and I had some extra time so I offered to volunteer for FC in the summer of 2017.
What volunteer work have you done
I am a graphic design so I volunteered to help with any print and email graphics needed. I started off helping someone else with the many emails and it has progressed into creating all emails, Annual Appeal letters, flyers, brochures and anything needed to get the word out in a professional way.
What is your favorite thing about working with FC?
I love cats and seeing the cats get the help they need and finding their forever homes is incredibly rewarding. I adopted Molly in June 0f 2019 from the Brookhaven PetSmart and she has quickly made herself at home.
What do you wish the public knew about animal rescue?
Animal rescues offer many forgotten pets a chance for a forever home, a chance that they often wouldn't get otherwise. It takes many volunteers to make this work. People can volunteer in many ways and it doesn't have to take a lot of time. People can also help by fostering and bringing a pet into there home for a short time to help them get ready for their forever homes.
