KRL would like to welcome local animal rescue Cats By The Tracks to KRL’s growing list of animal rescue columns. Their first column will go up next month, but we took some time this month to get to know them a little better. We chatted with their coordinator Jeremy Goodrich. Jeremy helps rescue animals, find foster families, and approve adoptions. He also manages their social media and website, as well as their donation platform. Cats By The Tracks is currently located in Fresno, as well as Santa Cruz County. They have adoption centers throughout California, and rescue animals from all over California.
