CARL, and Ventura loses one of their best

Phyllis was animal advocate of the first order. For the past 2 1/2 years, and 5 years prior to that, Phyllis managed the CARL and Cat’s Cradle thrift store for no compensation, with all sales money donated to the above animal rescues. She was well known and respected in the rescue community and by store customers.

Phyllis Berger moved to Ventura County in the 90’s. The animal kingdom and rescue community at large are diminished by her death Feb. 26, 2018.

Phyllis invested her time, energy, and compassion in care for those unable to advocate for themselves. Her generosity also extended to the homeless.

Phyllis was a strong, independent woman, who lived life on her own terms. Often tough on the outside, but warm, caring, and generous on the inside. Our community is lessened by her absence.
