God's Little Creatures Rescue

Most people would probably not choose to run a cat rescue shelter during retirement, but Bob and Norma Coffel believe that's exactly what they should be doing with their golden years. On this week's WSIU InFocus, we'll show you how the Coffels have invested a lot of their own time and money to establish God's Little Creatures Rescue in Christopher, Illinois to save unwanted cats from an almost certain death.

But this labor of love is taking its toll on the Coffels as they try to care for and find homes for as many as 150 cats at a time while Norma battles cancer and Bob struggles to find resources to run the rescue mission. You won't want to miss this revealing story of courage and conviction to help creatures that can't help themselves.
