At 61, I wanted to go to nursing school after caring for my mother and other family members, and by the grace of God, obtained my practical nursing license in NJ and PA. I now work as an LPN at The Haven at Silverwoods in Toms River, NJ.
Ron Sheehan and I have known each other since 1961. He became involved with Animal Care when he moved down to Toms River in 1981. When I moved down to Toms River in 1987, I had the privilege of meeting Leslie Sinclair after Ron had helped her moved up to East Smithfield, PA. I always admired Ron’s dedication to Lesley’s Animal Care and the furries and was always aware of the many changes taking place after her death. When Ron passed in October of 2010, I was honored when the Board of Directors asked me to fill Ron’s seat.
Animals have always been a part of my life, from saving critters to raising English Springer Spaniel puppies. We have had guinea pigs, hamsters, dogs, cats and horses. Love them all. I am now sharing our cabin in Pa with a small snake and few mice. They are God’s creatures after all. I share my home in NJ with my dog Toby.
I am married to Walt “Bud” Kane and we have one grown up son living in Virginia with his wife, Wendy. They have two Dogs that complete their family.
We have a wonderful, handsome yellow lab, Gus who was a a naughty boy growing up. Also we have a delightful little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. If you are not familiar with that breed, they are in the toy category and resemble a tiny cocker. Molly is quite the lap dog.
I’m retired from Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital. I first worked in the Lab and then moved over the the Laurels where I was the Assistant Administrator. I moved back to Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital where I worked in the Administrative Department, wearing many hats. I retired after working in the Laurel Health System for 20 great years. It was a wonderful place to work.
I waited for just the right place for me to volunteer. I believe I found it at the Animal Care Sanctuary. I am impressed with how it cares for the animals, with respect & love along, with all over care. I admire ACS so much that I am now a Part of their Board of Directors.
