Stoughton woman’s free time is all about rescuing stray cats
A paralegal by day, Susan Mariano’s evenings and weekends are all about cats. For 15 years, she has volunteered at the Neponset Valley Humane Society, an all-volunteer nonprofit based in Norwood that rescues stray cats in surrounding towns, as well as in Boston. It’s a big job, and there’s a cat crisis. It’s why Mariano feels she can’t take time off from her cat work, which involves trapping, neutering, and returning them.
