Julie Adam’s love of animals, and her instinct to step in to help the ones in need, started the day she could say the word ‘cat’. Born into a family of animal welfare advocates, Julie’s childhood was filled with friends of all types – human and non-human alike! Upon college graduation, Julie moved to the big city to start her career as a corporate interior and exhibit designer. When she wasn't at work, she was always volunteering her time with one of Chicago’s many animal shelters. After acting as a volunteer for several years, she met Cindy Ruback, a fellow feline lover, and together, in 2006, they formed Chicago Cat Rescue – a not-for-profit 501(c)3 animal rescue organization, dedicated to improving the lives of animals in the Chicagoland area through rescue, adoption, and the education of their human companions."
