One of our very own volunteers, Rocio Valdez, was nominated as one of ABC7’s Cool Kids! The weekly segment airs on Thursdays at 4:00pm and highlights some amazing kids and their talents, passions, or incredible stories.
Rocio, 17, loves cats and has three of her own. She was asked by MeoowzResQ to foster a few kittens until they were ready to be adopted.
“I was only going to foster two kittens and they were a month old and I was only going to bottle feed them for a month, but then that same day they called me and asked if I could take four more kittens,” Rocio said.
Rocio began fostering at the start of the summer by bottle feeding the kittens every three hours while still maintaining a tight summer schedule, which includes an internship and water polo practice.
“It was busy, but I thought it was really fun,” Rocio said.
In September, Rocio started volunteering at the Santa Ana Adoption Events on Sundays. Her kittens are nearly big enough to be spayed or neutered and they are all anxious to find new homes! She expects to bring her kittens to the Santa Ana Adoption Event held on Sunday, September 18, 2016 at the Petco in the Bristol Plaza.
