Cathy first became involved with Second Chance as a participant in the Furry 5K with her daughter and grandpup Zaxby. With both daughters in college, she was excited to become more involved with helping such a great organization by joining the board in 2015. She shares her empty nest with her husband, Pat, and their 15 year old rescued cat, Fudgy. Cathy is a Senior Manager at Hughes, Pittman & Gupton, where she has worked since 2004.
Bonnie started volunteering with Second Chance in 2008 as a dog foster. She has also fostered cats, and enjoys volunteering at the various events that help fund our important mission. She has 2 cats that she adopted from Second Chance (Bella and Bryson) and a feral cat that is learning to enjoy the inside (Cody), and several chickens.
