Furry Friends has named Tanika Campbell to the position of general manager and adoptions coordinator.
Furry Friends is a cat shelter in Vancouver that has been in operation since 1999. It had been an all-volunteer organization until 2022. Campbell will be the third paid staff member. She will report to Executive Director Jenn Hutchman. Her duties will include communications regarding adoptions, approving applications, scheduling meet and greets for cat adoptions, facilitating adoptions, scheduling transportation for all appointments, keeping electronic records up to date and a multitude of other duties.
Campbell and her husband, Mike, started volunteering with Furry Friends in 2012 by starting a food collection/donation at their work. This led into volunteering to be socializers and enrolling their Labrador in the pet assisted living therapy program. When Furry Friends made its big move into the current shelter in 2016, they assisted with moving cats and things to the new place, yard work, and random handy work around the Halfway House. They also helped with in-person events and kept four feral cat colonies fed over the years. They are fosters for the program’s medically needy adult cats, pregnant moms and kittens and are good at coaxing cats out of their shells and getting them to trust people. At one time, they were fostering 28 cats and kittens in their home.
