Penny has a wealth of experience working with animals in various capacities. She has worked extensively with domestic and feral cats.
Penny completed her wildlife rehabilitation certification in 2014 through OWREN for the Ministry of Natural Resources. Joining the CWC team in 2015, Penny has assisted with canid investigations, on-the-ground rescues, releases and wildlife education. Working on these initiatives, she has gained an important understanding of wildlife behaviours. Along with working with CWC, Penny also volunteered with the Owl Foundation.
Penny also has a great deal of experience with small mammals, having rehabilitated numerous juvenile cottontail rabbits over the years, preparing them for release back to the wild. Penny also spent 4 years assisting with local cat rescues with Toronto Cat Rescue and fostered several cats and kittens, and helped with feral cat populations.
A Registered Nurse with more than several years of front-line experience, Penny currently works in a mental health care facility and devotes her free time to expanding her skills and experience working with wildlife.
