Animal Beat: Saluting a Stellar Volunteer in Cat Rescue

Animal Beat: Saluting a Stellar Volunteer in Cat Rescue
BY PAT SUMMERS
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Last week, April 12-18, was National Volunteer Appreciation Week, but it’s never too late to celebrate a person in one of the hardest areas to find steady, long-term volunteers: animal rescue.

Rescue groups have no end of jobs to be done if homeless cats and dogs are to be helped and homed. The challenge is always finding, and keeping, enough people to do all that’s needed – fostering, transporting, cage cleaning, fund-raising, advertising, applicant screening, . . .

Far from needing to be persuaded to help out with tasks to be done, Carol Rivella, of Ewing, NJ, sometimes seems ready to take on every job possible with Trenton Cats Rescue (TCR), a group serving Trenton and the surrounding area.

Loving to be busy and seemingly tireless, Rivella just keeps saying “yes” to calls for volunteers – if she’s not the one who suggested the job to begin with. She’s today’s edition of the saying that if you want something done, ask the busiest person you know.

Rivella lives in a tidy, nicely landscaped home with her husband, Pete, and their family: Chloe and Sadie, as well as Amanda, Angel, Gismo, Lucky and Polly – a.k.a. two large dogs and five cats – and up to three foster cats too. She works part-time as a phlebotomist at a nearby hospital and cares for a colony of community cats who are fed twice daily. (During the long cold winter, she kept their canned food in her work locker so breakfast was room temp when she fed them on her way home.)
