He and his late wife Bev moved to Longmont in 1975 on relocation from Lexington, Kentucky.

George has lived with cats most of his life, from his childhood companion Sylvester to the much loved and recently departed LFFAC adoptee Blaze.


Sam Shore, Member

Sam came to LFFAC as an opportunity to pay tribute to a beloved cat who passed in early 2023.  With a background in television production and broadcast technology Sam contributes to software applications and media development. Sam and wife, Lois, settled in Longmont in 2017 with rescue cat Keko.  Almost never without a cat in the family since childhood, Sam is dedicated to improving the lives of Longmont’s community cats and making the LFFAC media and software operations run smoothly.
