Some people can spend a lifetime doing nothing at all. Fortunately, 76-year old Barb Jones has spent the last 40 years of her life rescuing cats.

Barb has been using the Trap-Neuter-Return method to care for Colorado Spring’s estimated 10,000 homeless cats. “It’s second nature to me now,” Barb said. “I’ve been helping people help cats for most of my life.” While Barb isn’t the stereotypical “cat lady,” she’s definitely a friend of cats.
