My name is Cindy McCollough.  I was born in Ohio and I lived on a 156-acre farm.  I loved animals from the day I was born.  As a young child, I met lots of animals that were "dumped" and some of them were ill and/or injured.  My parents and I gave them a home and cared for them.

When I was in 3rd grade, we moved from Ohio to Florida.  My love for animals became stronger with each passing day. 

When I entered 9th grade, I watch a TV program, SQUAD 51.  I knew then that I wanted to be a Paramedic.  Another year went quickly and I was in 10th grade.  I started to volunteer my time at the Fire Department.  I also tried my hand as a Candy Striper in a hospital, but my interest was more focused on being a Paramedic.  I became a certified nursing assistant, a CNA!

To earn some money, I worked many different jobs in many different lines of business.

But I wanted to be a Paramedic and work with people.  However, my passion for animals kept surfacing.  I knew I wanted to work in the animal world, too.

After graduating High School, I went to school to become a Paramedic.  Also, I volunteered at the Humane Society.  I noticed that senior animals were being euthanized.  I knew then that I wanted to have a Sanctuary and Rescue for cats.  I was determined to bring my dream alive.  I would have a place for cats to live out their lives.

So, I helped to save peoples' lives as a Paramedic for twenty-three (23) years with Manatee County Emergency Medical Services. 

I started a cat sanctuary in my home to save cats' lives.   Thus, TANKS was born!!!!
