She is retired from a career in asset and property management, and worked with the Boards of a number of nonprofit housing providers. After retirement, she served on the board for Wild Bird Rehabilitation in Denver for two years, working to rehabilitate and release injured or orphaned wild birds. Wishing to volunteer nearer her community, and having adopted two shelter cats, she was delighted when LFFAC accepted her volunteer application.

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

At home, George is head of staff for the always amusing and engaging cat BW.
Terri Heeter, Director
Terri moved from Santa Fe, New Mexico, to Longmont in November 2018, along with their two labradors, Ibarra, Molly, and cat, Chandra. Terri has been an animal lover all her life. However, her passion and greatest fulfillment are helping community shelters and needy animals. Terri earned two degrees in business management and computer engineering. She started two successful international businesses in her career and has held positions as a Business Development/Marketing Specialist, Business Analyst, Systems Engineer, and Project Manager in private and government agencies and nonprofit organizations. So when she learned about LFFAC, she was immediately interested and knew this would be an opportunity to use her skills and experiences to help the feral cats.
