Ginny Ellingson
Lead Feline Volunteer -
Ginny began volunteering at the humane society September, 2009, primarily socializing cats. For the past year or two she has been taking pictures and keeping Pet Finders up to date. Ginny lives in Plover where her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, India, makes sure they both have a daily walk. India shares Ginny with 5 cats, 3 of which came from PCHS. The dog is always happy to help nurture foster kittens from the shelter, too. Ginny also enjoys volunteering at Operation Bootstrap once a week, reading, puttering in her yard and flower beds, and spending time with her family. (Her daughter, Lara Pagel, and granddaughters Alyssa and Kristin are also volunteers at the shelter.)
