Meet Our Team:

Ms. Alier

Ms. Alier has been in the animal welfare industry for over ten years. Ms. Alier has a background in Business Management and Community Relations and is a graduate of Hunter College where she earned a double bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Urban Affairs. As a resident of Central Islip, NY for more than twenty years, Ms. Alier has become increasingly disturbed by the increase in gang activity in the surrounding areas as well as the increase in the number of homeless cats wandering the streets. By creating Fixing Felines and adding an educational youth group, Ms. Alier has discovered a great way to combat both!

Each meeting is emphasized with the importance of compassion, community and respect for ALL living creatures.
