Butch Smith

Update:  We at ASTRO Foundation are deeply saddened by the loss of this man and amazing board member.  Butch was a man with an unending heart for the animals and was always available to help...He will truly be missed!

Butch has been a resident of Stan County since 2000.  He moved here from Hayward after retiring from PG&E where he spent 28 years as a computer analyst.

Butch has always had a soft spot for animals, especially cats.  He and his wife Nina currently foster several kittens for ASTRO and have four felines of their own.

Butch has been volunteering for ASTRO since 2014. He takes and posts most of ASTRO's photographs, communicates with local media, is a platinum sponsor for the adoption bus, and is responsible for finding the building where the Thrift & Gift Shop currently resides.  Butch recently joined the board of directors and hopes to help establish an ASTRO Cat Adoption Center.
