From Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul

Who Is Carol Kline?

Carol Kline is passionate about cats! In addition to being a doting “pet parent,” she is active in animal-rescue work. Although she has recently relocated to California, she is still a member of the board of directors of the Noah’s Ark Animal Foundation, www.noahsark.org, located in Fairfield, Iowa—a limited-access, “cageless” no-kill shelter that rescues lost, stray and abandoned dogs and cats. For the last eight years, Carol has spent many hours a week monitoring the fate of dogs and cats at Noah’s Ark and working to find them good permanent homes. She also administered the Caring Community Spay/ Neuter Assistance Program (CCSNAP), a fund especially designated for financially assisting pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Carol says, “The reward of helping these animals is more fulfilling than any paycheck I could ever receive. Volunteering time with the animals fills my heart and brings great joy to my life.”

A freelance writer/editor for nineteen years, Carol, who has a B.A. in literature, has written for newspapers, newsletters and other publications. In addition to her own Chicken Soup books, she has also contributed stories and her editing talents to many other books in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

In addition to her writing and animal work, Carol is a motivational speaker and gives presentations to animal-welfare groups around the country on a variety of topics. She has also taught stress-management techniques to the general public since 1975.

Carol has the good fortune to be married to Larry and is a proud stepmother to Lorin, twenty-three, and McKenna, twenty. She has three dogs—all rescues—Beau, Beethoven and Jimmy.
