Fifteen years ago, Terri Hoge read an article in the Courier Journal about the work that Alley Cat Advocates does. Shortly after, she attended a volunteer orientation. She started volunteering at Big Fixes, eventually moving in to a team leader role in the post-surgery area. She has also helped with discharge and feeding of cats the morning after surgery. At one time, Terri oversaw all of Alley Cat Advocates donation boxes around the community. Currently, she collects donations monthly from 3 boxes. She is also always available to spread the word about Alley Cat Advocates at tabling events around the community. Terri and her husband of 25 years, Peyton, are avid hot air balloon enthusiast and bring out their hot air balloon for the Alley Cat Advocates float in the annual Frankfort Avenue Easter Parade. Terri is also on our office volunteer team and is faithfully here each week stuffing envelopes, reconciling reports and filing paperwork along with anything else that needs to be done. Terri loves helping the cats, but she also loves the teamwork of the staff and volunteers. In her words, “It’s an awesome team!” Terri is retired from National City Bank and she and Peyton currently share their home with their cat, Phoenix and their very large dog, Louie.
