Kim Class, RVT

"I founded CAF in June 2002 because, at the time, Humboldt County was euthanizing between 5-6000 animals with approximately 75% being cats. It's hard to imagine a single animal, let alone thousands in our small corner of the world. I wanted to create a space for the community to come together and do what we call "the good work". 2015 saw us euthanize less than 100 animals. Isn't that the goal of life, to bring beauty and goodness wherever we land? Thank you dear, sweet community members for supporting this organization. Most of all thank you from all those who cannot tell themselves, our beloved animals."

"I love working for CAF because it's a group of people who are incredibly passionate about finding loving homes for cats, dogs, and even other animals on occasion. They all need and deserve care and companionship, and I am happy to be a part of providing that for them."

"There is no better feeling than being part of an organization that shares your same passion to make a difference for animals in need. Helping animals is the one thing that fills my heart with joy and I'm extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to fill my heart every time I come into CAF."

"I have loved animals all my life, and that's what attracted me to CAF - first as a volunteer, and then as an employee. I love working for CAF because I get to help animals and people in our community through education and compassion."

"Nothing matters more to me than knowing that the work I do goes directly towards improving the lives of those around me, animal and human. Each day I come in to CAF I know I am going to be giving a voice to the voiceless, and every time I go home I do so with a sense of satisfaction that I made the world a slightly more compassionate place that day. The good work that I get to do for the community, working with the CAF family, is a privilege. I look forward to expanding our educational reach, growing our pool of resources, and strengthening our bonds with the Humboldt community."
