For Hannah Shaw, it all started when she was a camp counselor more than 10 years ago. She spotted a tiny kitten in trouble and knew she had to act.

Her rescue of that feline led to her create "Kitten Lady," a project dedicated to rescuing vulnerable kittens and nursing them to health so they can be adopted.
