Carolyn at Rikki’s Refuge
A few years ago when Carolyn’s 84th birthday was approaching, her family asked what she wanted.  She said, A TRIP TO RIKKI’S REFUGE.  Carolyn and her daughters Reba and Faith have been supporters of Rikki’s for a very long time. 

Bless your soul Carolyn, you will always be in our hearts.  Look after Vincent for us.

Thank you to those who have contributed to Carolyn’s Memorial Fund to help the cats of Rikki’s Refuge
