In 2001, Kathy Stevens walked away from a career in teaching, bought a junkyard, and transformed it into a 110-acre animal sanctuary. Since then, Catskill Animal Sanctuary has cared for over 3,000 animals rescued from situations of cruelty and hoarding.
Still a teacher at heart, Kathy runs camps for children, does outreach in schools, and holds cooking classes at the sanctuary. People who are too far away to visit can read Kathy’s newest book, Animal Camp. In the book they will meet Tucker the steer who thinks he’s a puppy, and Hope the horse with low self-esteem.
Toronto listeners may take special pride in Kathy’s words of admiration for the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival and the work of Toronto Pig Save and Toronto Cow Save!
