Emily Blade Animal Care Sanctuary Director of Feline Care

Emily Blade


Emily is a 2012 graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Animal Sciences. Her early career was focused on veterinary care, and she is thankful for the lessons learned and experience gained from several years of working with a number of veterinarians and their practices. The skills and knowledge gained from this background have influenced her approach to animal care, a passion discovered during an internship with the Wolf Education and Research Center in 2011. Since then, her career in animal care has provided experience in care of animals both domestic and exotic, from dogs, cats and horses to potbellied pigs, peacocks, alpacas, and wolves. Emily is excited to be bringing this diversity of experiences to the ACS Feline Care department, and together with the rest of the Feline Care team is looking forward to continuing to improve and modernize the care of the many wonderful cats in the ACS Cattery. She is also excited to be working to educate the community about the problem of cat overpopulation, and being able to provide resources and assistance in solving this problem that has such an impact on our community.
