We created Canopy Cat Rescue in 2009 after discovering how difficult it was for people to find help for their cats stuck high in trees. As cat people ourselves, we know how horrible it feels when a cat is missing, crying for help, high up in a tree. Cold, hungry, scared, tired, and dehydrated; many cats, unfortunately, suffer each year after being stuck in trees.

Tom also loves dogs and recently rescued a border collie mix. Tom enjoys combining his love for cats with his tree-climbing skills.
