Lynn Stitt, Founder
Lynn’s volunteer animal work began in her late teens and that wasn’t yesterday or the day before that! She cleaned cages at the humane society and later served on the board of the Harrisburg Humane Society. Lynn started The Best Little Cat House In PA in 1980 for hospice cats with no place to go. It remains one of the oldest hospice centers in the U.S. It is all volunteer, including Lynn and there is never a charge or fee to accept a resident. She was a founder of Central PA Spay Neuter Fund and later served on a local rabbit rescue board. For 15 years, Lynn worked under a wildlife rehabilitation expert and took in injured squirrels, wild rabbits and opossums, averaging over 500 releases per year. “Now the time has come at age 65 to realize the animal world is worse now than when I started. PennyFix is my dream to bring the dog and cat population under control before I die. I believe it can be done!”
Mikaela Fleisher, President
Mikaela’s love for animals began when she was a child. Living in a log home with a field for a backyard, she was always providing food for wayward cats that were lucky to come across her. In 2009, she began volunteering with Castaway Critters and the following year, she started volunteering with the Humane Society of the Harrisburg Area. She also previously volunteered with the Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue and Loving Care Cat Rescue. For the past ten years, Mikaela has worked at a busy animal hospital as a receptionist and loves (almost) every minute of it.
She met Lynn Stitt when volunteering at The Best Little Cat House. She is one of the youngest board members for PennyFix and is extremely honored to have been chosen to help make PennyFix a success.
