We are so proud of our founder and director, Sally Halela, who was recognized  in 2018 with four different awards for her commitment to South County Cats and 35 years as an animal welfare volunteer:

Washington State Veterinary Medical Association - Humane - Animal Welfare Award

Governor’s Volunteer Service Award - Animal Welfare category

Auburn Valley Humane Society’s Animal Champion Award - Individual category

National Points of Light Award - Points of Light is the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service and recognizes extraordinary volunteers who are donating their time and talent to better their communities.

Sally is an inspiration to all of us and these awards validate the important work South County Cats does, which impacts cats, their caretakers and our community.

I wanted to thank you very much for helping me fix my kitty...

I got a kitty off Craigslist around Christmas time. He was supposed to be a girl but is a boy. He is very loveable, so it doesn't matter!

I requested and received a voucher from South County Cats and got my kitty fixed on Tuesday this week. Besides doing my part to keep population down, it is healthier for the kitty. I just wanted to extend my thanks for helping me with this.
