She clearly states her mission to end the suffering for unwanted animals while they wait for forever homes. Shelter animals be treated with diligent care and housed in a comfortable manner that is clean and as stress free as possible. That every animal be treated with respect and has a chance to be matched with home who has support to see them through from adoption to old age. The public be offered services to end overpopulation with affordable or free spay neuter and low cost vaccine clinics. Feral cats are dealt with.
