In Loving Memory of Sonia Young
Sonia was instrumental in the creation of McKamey Animal Center, and has served the Center and its animals every day since. Sonia was one of those rare individuals who made every life she touched better, and her lavender love will be sorely missed by the board, the staff, and every one of the animals who has passed through MAC’s doors. She has left purple paw prints on all of our hearts here at MAC and we will miss her terribly.
