Kathy Centala has been a proud cat lover for 25 years. When she founded Purrfect Pals in 1988, she operated the organization as a modest cat boarding facility that took in the occasional homeless cat. However, she quickly recognized that these homeless kitties were part of a much large group of cats in need, and she began taking on more and more cats rather than let suffer from hunger and neglect on the streets. When she ran out of room at home, she moved the organization to a five-acre estate in rural Arlington, Washington, allowing her to provide a loving temporary home for cats and broaden her goal to putting an end to feline homelessness in Puget Sound.
Today, her organization provides a sanctuary where all cats – including feral cats, cats suffering from leukemia and FIV, and cats with behavioral issues – can enjoy the love and attention they deserve. Kathy’s adoption and rehabilitation programs allow Purrfect Pals to place more than 2,500 cats and kittens in loving homes each year. Furthermore, she seeks to educate families on the importance of spaying and neutering and humane ownership.
