About Us

Totally Sane Cat Ladies and One Crazy Cat Dude 

(Officers and Board of Directors)

Loralee Childers

President & Co-Founder

Loralee is a self-professed “dog person” but isn’t fooling anyone.  After fostering with other organizations, she decided to jump into the deep end of starting a new rescue with a fellow “totally sane cat lady” in Autumn 2020.  She now serves as the President of the organization and is often a high-volume foster with 6 cats of her own plus numerous fosters often putting her well into the double digits.  When she isn’t busy scooping litter boxes, administering medication, or feeding cats, she’s processing adoption applications, answering calls, texts, and messages, working full time at a local bourbon distillery, curled up with a good book, or at a Renaissance festival. 

Victoria Osborne

Vice President & Secretary

Victoria is the current Vice President of Finders Keepers Cat Rescue and loves every minute of it! 

She’s been in animal rescue for over 15 years beginning in Colorado, until moving to Tennessee. Helping animals in need is a passion of hers, and each animal rescued has a special place in her heart. In addition to fostering, she has two dogs and one cat, and they are each their own personality and love each other so much!

Johnni Dodson


Johnni got roped into the crazy rescue game when a mama cat decided to grace her with kittens and she ran into Loralee at a local vet clinic.  Since then, she's stepped into the role of Treasurer and is quintessential for community networking and finding creative and ongoing ways to finance the rescue's day-to-day operations.
