It’s a rare Monday that Sally Price can’t be found helping out in the Greenhill Cattery. Not just a cattery volunteer, Sally also helps as a Trap, Neuter, Return Assistant, has helped in the kennel and volunteers at special events as well.
“I have enjoyed meeting many new friends which has made my volunteering experience very satisfying. The Greenhill staff is so talented and important to the facility. They enjoy their work and consider the animals their number one priority on a daily basis. The volunteer and foster managers and the many volunteers are so outstanding. There are so many dog walkers, kennel cleaners, cattery assistance, etc. helping to restore these animals’ lives,” she said.
Originally from Illinois, Sally’s parents moved to Elmira where she grew up on a mini farm, surrounded by animals. After marrying Sally and her husband have shared their home with two Irish Setters and 11 abandoned or rescued felines. She also spent 20 years trapping, spay/neutering, releasing and feeding feral cats.
“I was very apprehensive about volunteering at Greenhill because I have been such a devotee to homeless and helpless animals all of my life. What I have learned since volunteering is that these cats, kittens, dogs, puppies and small animals receive such wonderful care from the staff and volunteers. These animals need a ‘forever home’ but while they are here at GHHS they have a very great life and are loved unconditionally,” she said.
When Sally isn’t surrounded by animals, she is a huge Oregon Duck fan and enjoys attending football games, traveling, biking, hiking, gardening and any other outdoor activity. She also collects Swarovski crystal. Sally shares her home (on 15 acres!) with her husband, Barry, and her special cat, Squirt.
