The Directors of Feline Friends, Lisa Ward and Toni McNaughton, have been volunteering, together and separately, with various local and national animal welfare organizations since 1998.


Together, as volunteers, they co-managed a cat adoption center operated by PAWS Chicago from 1998 through 2004. Since that time they have continued to rescue, foster and place homeless cats, founding Feline Friends in 2009. 


When not engaged in rescue work, Toni is a representative for commercial photographers, and Lisa is a partner at a corporate governance consulting firm.
