October Volunteer Spotlight:

steve rudisill

Steve Rudisill has been involved with HSCC behind the scenes for a while now, and is a recent and joyful addition to our cat cuddling volunteer core. He comes to the Hickory shelter three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), and sometimes weekend events, to spend some quality time with our kitties. Making his way through the colonies and condos he spends one-on-one time with each cat learning about their personalities and helping to socialize them in an effort to prepare them for their forever family. The knowledge he has about each cat is invaluable, and he’s quick to share with potential adopters who are looking for the purrfect addition for their families.

Steve is very observant and let’s our staff know if he notices any change in a cats demeanor, or any medical issues that need attention. In this way, he helps to keep our kitties healthy and happy. The cats love and adore him, pawing at their condo windows as they see him make his way down the hall.

Steve is an excellent cat cuddler, but also an extraordinary person. He is a delight to be around and has quickly become a part of the HSCC family. The staff and other volunteers have nothing but high praise, and are grateful for his continued presence at the shelter. We are blessed to count Steve among our volunteers. He has brought new life and energy to the Hickory location.

If you have ever considered becoming a cat cuddler stop by the shelter and meet Steve; he’ll be happy to show you around and introduce you to our cats. Thank you Steve for your dedication and for taking such good care of our kitty cats.
