We help people who help cats
In the heart of Bastrop County exists a true gem whose selflessness and dedication have woven a tapestry of compassion for our furry four-legged friends frequently overlooked—our newest Consuela Viva Babe Martha! This extraordinary Consuela Viva Babe invests an incredible 175+ hours per month volunteering, pouring her heart and soul into the mission of Bastrop Cats Anonymous TNR Society.
Martha's journey as a volunteer is a testament to her unwavering commitment to seeing opportunities and stepping up to make a meaningful difference. Over the years, she has generously shared her time and talents with various organizations. Her current passion that started when some cats birthed under her porch in 2018, that has truly ignited a flame within her. So far, in 2023, over 550 cats have been spayed and neutered, and addressing the stray and feral cat overpopulation in Bastrop County is at the heartbeat of her community service.
With unyielding determination, Martha manages Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) appointments, serving as the point of communication for community members seeking assistance. Her role often leads her to travel the county, delivering humane traps and imparting invaluable knowledge on safe trapping and transportation of feline friends for their appointments. Her dedication extends even further as she has organized nine distinct locations for spay/neuter services, all aimed at meeting the pressing demand and curbing the issue at its root.
Martha lives out her mantra as frequently being the guardian angel for families struggling to provide sustenance for their community cat colonies, ensuring no furry friend goes hungry. She is helping the cats, but she’s also supporting the people who have the need to help the cats. Her nurturing spirit also extends to the kitties, tirelessly networking to find them loving homes where they can thrive and flourish.
What makes Martha's efforts even more awe-inspiring is the fact that she carries out these duties 100% as a ridiculously awesome volunteer. Her actions echo the sentiment that kindness knows no bounds and that the love for our fellow creatures is a force that can move mountains.
