Board of Directors:
Priscilla Dean – President
Felix G. Ray – Treasurer
Martha Voss – Secretary
Priscilla Dean has been in the non-profit world for over 15 years, serving on the Board of Directors for a non-profit ballroom dance group (Phoenix USA Dance) for six years, as founder and president for four years, as well as doing closed captioning work for WGBH Educational Foundation in Los Angeles for five years.
Priscilla has also been involved in helping community cats through TNR (trap-neuter-return) programs, feral cat colony caretaking, fundraising and educational opportunities sponsored by other non-profit animal organizations.
Priscilla is the primary caretaker of the kitties of Purradise Ranch on a daily basis as well as videographer of the new “Adventures in Purradise” video series.
Felix G. Ray served on the Board of Directors of Phoenix USA Dance as Vice President and Competition Chairman.
He is in charge of the physical property of Purradise Ranch, building numerous “cool cat” creations, such as catios, pyramid, tower, tunnel and kitty condos galore.
Roz Deason not only brings her lifelong love for cats to the heart of Purradise Ranch, she also has created beautiful quilts that she donates 100% of the proceeds to the kitties. Plus, she has written two books and is currently working on a third (check out our online book store). Not bad for being 91 years young!!
Update: We’re sad to announce that my mom passed away on 8/3/21. She was a major impetus in creating Purradise Ranch and will be greatly missed by her family and cat friends!
Martha Voss joined our Board of Directors in 2023.
She is an incredible friend, dedicated volunteer in helping to feed and care for the sanctuary kitties, and even a cat wrangler for our video production endeavors, “Adventures in Purradise.”
We are extremely honored to have Martha join our Purradise Ranch family!
