Friends of LOLA

Will and Mary Linville are long time friends of Gerard and Maureen and co-founders of LOLA. From the beginning they have assisted in every possible way—by fostering and fundraising, and even adopting kitties. Will and Mary contributed funds to help buy the land for the sanctuary. On several occasions they have donated the money to keep LOLA going, and they are still the largest contributors to the organization. Will holds a raffle each month with all proceeds going to LOLA.

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. David Henderson of the Sunrise Veterinary Clinic. Dr. Henderson is known throughout the Las Vegas area as one of the few vets who actively assists animal rescuers. He truly has animal welfare at the heart of his practice, and he has been a real angel for LOLA. Dr. Henderson and his staff provide us with compassionate care, giving us discounted veterinary services and medicines that help keep everyone at the sanctuary healthy.

For years Ann Melly has assisted Maureen with weekly adoptions. Ann is currently LOLA’s one and only foster person, but whenever possible, she gets her family involved with fostering, too. She is a financial contributor, helps with fundraising, and is an allaround supporter of our organization.

Jen Meyer of KoolKat Web Designs, is the web developer who designed and programmed LOLA’s current website. She is a fundraiser and financial supporter. Jen also volunteers at PetSmart each week.

Deb Bohn provided web content for the new website. She runs the LOLA raffle and is involved in fundraising. Deb also volunteers at PetSmart.

Bruce and Becci Christiansen were original LOLA board members. Becci designed he original website and and maintained it for over a year. Together they helped physically build the sanctuary, while contributing to the costs of construction materials. Bruce and Becci made a large financial contribution that allowed Maureen and Gerard to complete the exterior stucco on the sanctuary.

Bud and Ursula were hired in January 2011. They hail most recently from Reno, NV. Bud and Ursula are responsible for a variety of cleaning and care taking duties at the sanctuary. They are also in charge of various office duties and computer tasks.

Maria has been a wonderful presence at the sanctuary for several years. She cleans, performs care taking duties and fosters animals.

Cindy Anthony is the Chloride connection for assisting with spay and neuters (an informal Trap/Neuter/Return program in our town and surrounding areas). Cindy is a great cheerleader for LOLA: She is grateful for the sanctuary and what it brings to the area, and isn’t shy about telling people.

Jack Frost was the original land developer and all-around go-to guy in Chloride. He excavated the sanctuary property, graded land, built the road, and provided all kinds of expertise during construction.

Roberta makes most of the crazy, wonderful cat furniture that we have around the sanctuary. Ron provides quality control.

Bobbi Klocker is well-known in Vegas. She has been involved in animal rescue for over 30 years. Bobbi is a wonderful liason for us, putting LOLA in touch with other organizations, helping us with fundraising and events.

Rich Flakus has been doing LOLA’s taxes since 2008. (Thank you, Rich!) With Rich’s help we were able to get our 501(c)3 status.

Dwayne Tucker was hired in November 2010. He performed various jobs at the sanctuary including cleaning and care taking. Dwayne also made the very important contribution of setting LOLA up on social networking sites and on Guidestar, a website that helps verify not-for-profit credentials.

We would also like to thank the Southern Nevada Spay and Neuter Center. The compassionate and helpful staff provides discounted veterinary spay and neuter services to LOLA.

Nora Stuart has provided us with beautiful quilts for auction at our fundraisers.

Janet Differ crochets “kitty afghans”—little blankets for our PetSmart kitties.

Jennifer and Jayson Barangan were on LOLA’s original board. They helped LOLA with several different fundraising activities.

Mike and Jennifer Connell have helped with LOLA’s fundraising activities. And Mike sends out monthly reminders and announcements for Will Linville’s LOLA raffle.

Members of the Dondero Elementary staff have come to fundraisers, donated their time and money to help keep LOLA going.
