Who's Who at the Rescue

Cheryl Kolus, DVM, KPA-CTP

Behavior Center Administrator

Cheryl Kolus received her DVM degree from Colorado State University in 2012. She was a small animal practitioner until she left general practice to start her own veterinary behavior consulting business. She completed one year of a “non-conforming” behavior residency before becoming involved with a new non-profit, the Clicker Learning Institute for Cats and Kittens (CLICK), where she was the Behavior and Training Manager. CLICK has since been absorbed by FCCRSNC and is now the rescue’s Behavior Center, with Cheryl continuing to manage it and help cats with extra behavioral needs. Before, during and after veterinary school, Cheryl volunteered at multiple animal shelters doing everything from office work and outreach to dog training and feline behavior assessments to surgeries. She has been seriously studying animal behavior since 2004, attending myriad seminars and conferences, and completing university courses in the field. In 2015, she completed the Karen Pryor Academy Dog Trainer Professional Course and is a Certified Training Partner. From 2012-2014, Dr. Kolus was on the Executive Board of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, and she remains an active member. She enjoys horseback riding and lives with one very talkative cat and a patient husband. Her amazing dog lives on in her heart.
