In Memory of Judy Reeder 

Judy Reeder, a WSHS volunteer, passed away on Monday, November 18th after a courageous battle with cancer.  Judy worked Wednesday mornings cleaning in our isolation area and Thursday mornings cleaning the cattery.  During the seven years she volunteered with us, she also fostered 45 kittens that eventually went on to find their forever homes.  Judy was a loving, compassionate person and a great volunteer.  She will truly be missed.  This video is done in tribute to Judy.
