NC man praised for saving cats through Cabarrus County TNR program — 23 Comments

  1. If another Jimmie doesn’t come along for Cabarrus County to follow in Jimmie’s footsteps, it will be a very sad future for Cabarrus cats. I can call on this man any time and he is on the way to help. He and Dave Burgess have contributed to the care of the cats in this county and other surrounding areas in a quiet and compassionate way. So many have escaped starvation and cruelty because of them.

  2. This article made me very happy to see because Jimmie Hoffman does deserve praise. I feed a lot of feral kitties and Jimmie has helped me so much. He has had them trapped, neutered and/or spade, then returned to me. I have taken in two of the ferals and I just love them so much. I have had to call Jimmie for help with food and litter and he’s been right there for me, giving me more than I even need at the time, but it carries me through for a month or two. Thank you so very much Jimmie Hoffman for all the work you do and all the love you give to all animals. God bless you!

    • Thanks Nancy for visiting and thanking Jimmie. I love to praise the good people. There must be more people like him. When I discover them I’ll praise them. They deserve and need it.

      • You forgot Neanderthal and cockroach. I see Woody’s grand tradition of being banned from this site goes even further back than I imagined. Sad that his kind can’t spell properly either.

        Well, I wouldn’t expect him to understand that Jimmie Hoffman and Dave Burgess are real men. Being a man is not defined by how many animals they kill.

  3. Jimmie has been the biggest asset to our rescue and spay neuter effort then anyone we have ever had the privilege to work with! Not only does he work with Friends for life Cat Adoptions and Cabarrus TNR he is on the board for Spay it Forward plus traps for injured birds for Carolina Water Foul! The equipment that he and Dave Burgess designed and built for trapping has outwitted the cleverest of cats! Jimmie never misses a special event or adoption event he is there from set up to tear down! I would like to also include a big nod to Gary Swanson pictured in the photo with some of the members. Since 2008 Gary who is a pilot by trade has taken time to play Santa at Photos with Santa, shoot pictures of the cats available for adoption, and help with fundraising! Besides being one of our adopters and a awesome cat dad! We are blessed Michael with some great men in our area! To say nothing of young Kaleb Brooks (also in adoption photo) who has been volunteering and fostering for Friends for Life Cat Adoptions with his mom for many years! Next week he is having his birthday party at our adoption event and has asked for gifts for the cats instead of himself! The adoption photo was taken by Ella Caudle pictured are Kaleb Brooks, Kristy Brooks, Gary Swanson, Tammy Parker, Carol Trew, and Jimmie Hoffman!

  4. I LOVE this story. I’ve asked Jan with Cabarrus TNR to come on here and correct any mistakes and to add any info I may have missed. Cabarrus is very high kill for the cats brought there. They don’t get much time at all to get out. I try to help them whenever I can.

  5. Jimmie is a great man. Well done Jimmie. I seems he rescued cats from a rescue center while the vet was inside killing cats! That is my take on what you wrote. If it is true is an extraordinary state of affairs.

    I love to read these sorts of stories. They are very positive and thanks Elisa for praising a man who deserves praise.
