Based in Louisville, Kentucky, the group has altered over 45,000 community cats and has worked to transform the culture of care provided to community cats in the region. She was instrumental in helping to pass an ordinance change in 2012 that propelled the implementation of an extremely successful returntofield program, moving the citys live release rate for cats to more than 95 percent in 2017 and 2018.
