Sattler received the "Mo Gatto" award in Hancock county in 2009 for her dedication to animals and animal welfare, much of which focused on feral cat spay/neuter efforts in her hometown. 

Currently, Sattler provides animal cruelty training to law enforcement throughout the state, and hosts low-cost spay/neuter clinics for dogs and cats in the state. She also volunteers as a wildlife rehabilitator and resides in south Mississippi with her family, dogs, cats, and horses.
