Katlyn and Paxson Heck

The Animal Protection Society – Friday Harbor is pleased to announce Katlyn and Paxson as the APS-FH Volunteer of the Month for November 2022.

Katlyn and Paxson came to volunteer for APS-FH in June of this year.

We chose this mom and son duo as volunteers of the month because of their dedication to the shelter cats. Unable to have a cat of their own, they have done the next best thing – volunteer to spend time with shelter cats! Each week, they come to the shelter ready to give their love and attention to the resident felines of the shelter. When asked which is his favorite cat in the shelter, Paxson did not hesitate, “I love Goose”, he replied. Goose is a young kitten found as a stray on San Juan Island that has since been adopted. It can be bittersweet when your favorite shelter animal gets adopted, but we are always happy when the animals find their forever homes. As for Paxson, we are pretty sure he will soon find another fortunate “favorite cat” to shower with affection.

Thank you, Katlyn and Paxson, for volunteering to spend time with shelter cats so they can have the love and attention they need and deserve until they too get to go home.
