Be Their Voice is an Atlanta-based certified non-profit run by experienced animal rescuers who are dedicated to saving the lives of homeless cats and kittens. Our story dates back to 2010 when our founder, Marlena, started volunteering with local rescue organizations while still in college. She quickly gained a reputation for her reliability and fearlessness in the face of so-called “tough cases” - pregnant or special needs cats that even established rescue operations wouldn’t or couldn’t handle. Soon, she struck out on her own, driving between shelters and animal control, personally taking in as many little lives as possible. In 2016, while finishing grad school and entering the workforce as a (human!) medical professional, Marlena started promoting her rescue activities online. It was at this time that she was given a “sick adult male” (rejected from a local shelter) who turned out to be a pregnant teen named Autumn! Thanks to Autumn, we now specialize in pregnant fosters. We work tirelessly to care for mom and babies until we can find everyone a forever home. Since then, we’ve rescued hundreds of cats and built an online community of tens of thousands of cat owners and advocates across the globe. Our foster stories have been featured in mainstream media outlets, including the Hallmark Channel’s “kitten bowl.” In 2019, we “made it official,” and Be Their Voice Animal Rescue was born. We tell this story not to pat ourselves on the back, but to demonstrate what we have and will continue to do to give a voice to the voiceless. All the good we’ve done would not be possible without our community - those who adopt, advocate, and donate.
