What a wonderful time we had at a sold out Jungle Boogie this year with over 200 event attendees! It’s always a special time for us to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments, but this year was special because we also got the opportunity to share plans about our future!

The Crystal Ball – A Look to our Future, featured special information and discussion about what the future holds for TWS. We showcased how our education and advocacy efforts will grow, as well as sharing exciting plans for our next big construction project – the redesign and renovation of Wildcat Pines!

Special thanks to our event sponsors, RE/MAX Results, The Mary L Kenzie Foundation, Pets Remembered Cremations, Fortune Tailers, Purrrfect 10, Ray & Rita Quist of RE/MAX Results, Sue & Dan Schmitt, and Andover Pet Hospital. We’re so proud to have so much support! Thank you!

During dinner, special recognition was given to Sue and Dan Schmitt, Marilynne Roberts and Joan Oprian for their extraordinary efforts helping the cats this year. Welcome to our Lion Pride!
