Ballroom Dance Enthusiasts


Felix G. Ray served on the Board of Directors of Phoenix USA Dance as Vice President and Competition Chairman. He is in charge of the physical property of Purradise Ranch, building numerous “cool cat” creations.

Daughter & Mother

Roz Deason not only brings her lifelong love for cats to the heart of Purradise Ranch, she also has created beautiful quilts that she donates 100% of the proceeds to the kitties. Plus, she has written two books and is currently working on a third (check out our online book store). Not bad for being 91 years young!!
