WGN Chicago featured one of the area’s tireless volunteers who works to help stray and feral cats, in a video profile broadcast this week.

According to the report, Georgie Black goes out three to four days a week rounding up cats in overlooked neighborhoods and taking them for TNR.

Georgie is a volunteer for PAWS Chicago and is active in areas where, as WGN pts it,  “the locals say the animal control and the rodent abatement programs are practically non-existent.”

PAWS Chicago shared the WGN profile celebrating their volunteer and wrote at Facebook: “Paws up for one of our amazing volunteers, Georgie Black, whose mission is to help control the cat population in Chicago through Trap, Neuter, Return! Georgie was also the volunteer who rescued Nikki, the sweet kitty who was tortured with fireworks in late June.”

Georgie is a lifelong animal lover and has TNRed more than 500 cats just since January of 2013, improving the health and well being of those cats and preventing thousands of homeless kittens from being born.
