HUMANE HERO: WILLIE ORTIZ DEDICATES HIS LIFE TO HELPING COMMUNITY CATS

At 77 years old, Willie Ortiz remains active in his community by helping shape the feral cat landscape. You see, for the last 24 years, Willie has spent 3 hours every single day collecting scrap metal to sell so that he can afford cat food for all of the cats he helps to feed, spay, neuter and vaccinate. He drives an ’88 truck that says “Feral Cats Metals for Meals.”

“I tell God he has to give me not nine but ten lives so that I can keep doing this.”

Over last quarter century, Willie has literally helped thousands of cats – he’s their guardian angel. When a co-worker and fellow cat lover found out what Willie was doing, she made a donation on the spot – and also made a GoFundMe page that has raised over $161,000 (as of this writing) to help Willie continue his mission.
