John R. Hamil (Dec 21, 1913 - April 4, 2002)
John R Hamil, a lifelong Blount County resident, was known for his love of animals but most especially stray and feral cats. John's kindness, compassion and refusal to let any animal starve or suffer from neglect or abuse became the legacy he is remembered for today. His gentleness of spirit was what prompted the founders of this organization to name it in his honor.
We began the foundation in 2012 and have been working on educating and assisting with spay / neuter and veterinary services since then.
