Community Cat Program Manager
Destiny Haney is the community cat program manager for Best Friends Animal Society. She currently oversees community cat programs in Southern California. These lifesaving programs are working to keep community cats out of municipal shelters. After nearly a decade of working in the L.A. cat rescue community, Destiny joined Best Friends in 2010. Destiny has regularly taken on new challenges to create proactive resources and to produce positive outcomes for the animals, especially cats. Prior to her work as the manager for community cat programs, she assisted with opening the Best Friends Pet Adoption and SpayNeuter Center in Mission Hills, joined in the launching of the NKLA initiative to make L.A. nokill, and established the L.A. kitten nursery, which saves thousands of kittens annually from L.A. city shelters. At home, Destiny takes care of her menagerie of special pets, including her dog with no nose. In her spare time, she volunteers as a weekend host and mentor for older children in the foster care system as they work to find adoptive families.
