As a teenager, Maria had a dog and two pet rats. Four years ago she became a total cat lady when she got her first kitten, found in her mom’s backyard with two siblings. Even though Maria decided to keep one it was still hard to find a rescue with room to take two kittens and so she decided once she was able to, she would foster kittens to help. Maria now fosters kittens with SJACC and is very excited to help street kittens find loving homes.
Since she got her first kitty, Maria now has three more cats, two of which are also rescued from the streets and one adopted from an organization. Maria also loves pet fish and currently has two fish. Her goal is to open her own cat rescue one day to help even more cats!
Maria happily serves clients across the South Bay and Silicon Valley.
