Founded in 2019, The Cat Lounge Rescue and Adoption Center strives to reimagine the shelter experience by creating a living room environment where cats are free to roam around and interact with the public. We are an all-women owned and operated organization, bringing our skills together to save lives together.
Renee Shamloo became an animal rights attorney at age 23, utilizing her legal skills to promote animal advocacy by creating innovate programs for shelters. She saw the hardships of shelter animals first hand when she worked at the Director of Operations of a local dog rescue and Shelter Manager of a humane society. In 2019, she decided to start her own rescue to aid in finding homes for unwanted animals.
Meredith Ford graduated from the University of Kentucky and furthered her education by joining the Exotic Animal Training and Management Program in Moorpark, California. She transferred to San Diego to work in the Navy Marine Mammal Program and as a zookeeper at Pacific Animal productions, where she receives hands on experience working with animals.
Ashley Grins began her animal career by independently rescuing animals that were being given away on social media. Fostering them in her own home, Ashley realized there was a greater issue at hand. She joined The Cat Lounge to educate the public about the importance of spay/neuter, keeping cats indoor, and adopting animals instead of buying them.
Nicole Obney became fluent in animal care after several years working with The San Diego Humane Society, where she provided animal care to those most in need. She also has a background in veterinary care, learning the ins and outs of cat health.
