Volunteer of the Month

Nancy Downer

Cherryland Humane Society’s Volunteer of the Month

November, 2017


Nancy has given numerous hours volunteering at CHS since 2014. She is a lover of all animals but extra fond of our feline residents and is considered one of our cat experts. She has given countless kitties an increased likelihood of being adopted sooner. Currently Nancy helps with cat socializing, lobby hosting, special events, reception and was recently a big help getting CHS’ float ready for the Downtown TC Light Parade!
Nancy has two cats of her own that she loves very much and began fostering them for CHS but couldn’t resist adopting.

Please join CHS staff and fellow volunteers in extending a big thank you to Nancy Downer. She has given Cherryland Humane Society so much of her time and love and openly shared her exceptionally sweet personality again and again.
