About Us

Our Mission

Central Cat Coalition believes in second chances for community cats. Our mission is to reduce and manage the community cat population of Mt. Pleasant through humane trap neuter and return, and to empower the community to coexist with these cats through education.

Who We Are

Desiree Bigard

I have been in the animal rescue industry since 2017, though my love for cats goes back to my childhood. I have worked in an animal shelter, and have spent a lot of time volunteering for multiple rescues in the community. My main passion lies with fostering kittens. I have a passion for spreading awareness and educating others on kitten care so that every kitten being born to an unowned cat has their best chance at survival. My interest in TNR stems from the desire to prevent these litters from being born into an environment that can’t support them. 

When I’m not catching cats or caring for kittens, I’m spending time with my family or working on my continued education in business management and marketing.

Elizabeth Armstrong

I am currently a student and hope to one day become a veterinary technician. I have fostered cats for a few years now with Karma Kat Cafe.  I enjoy working with all animals, both wild and domestic.  I have worked with rescue horses in Tennessee, various pet rescues like the Humane Animal Treatment Society and volunteered for a wildlife rehabilitator for a few years, as well as a volunteer at the Detroit Zoo. Contributing to the community is important to me. Trap, Neuter/Spay, and Return (TNR) is how I hope to help make a difference.
