President & Founder
My name is Selina Cardoza. For many years, my dream has been to operate a cat rescue. And here we are! CrucesCoolCats is up and running to help as many homeless cats as we can! I am an animal lover with 4 cats, 5 dogs, 5 large fish tanks, and 1 turtle of my own. I cannot remember a time without a animal in my life.

Hello my name is Isaiah, I am originally from Ft. Worth, and moved down here about 1 and a half years ago. I am an animal lover and was very excited to hear about an opening as caregiver to CCC.

Hello, my name is Jessie. I love cats and all animals that I can help. Before CCC, I had a feline leukemia cat colony, my partner and myself did everything to trap, treat and care for our colony. I feel like I could help so much more in our community with CCC.
