Our cat rescue was working overtime in 2023!
We were so busy this year helping rescue and find loving forever homes for just under 400 cats! Before we tell you all about them, a huge thank you goes out to all our foster homes, vets, and volunteer drivers as well as everyone who has given so generously to our mission. Without you, we couldn’t do any of this!
So, as you can tell from the large number of cats we rescued this year, we’re getting calls pretty much every single day requesting help with everything from abandoned kittens needing a home, to special-needs cats requiring life-saving surgeries and rehabilitation, like this sweetheart, Max. Plus, every cat who comes into our care is spayed or neutered and they all receive their first round of shots.
Max came to the sanctuary with a broken front leg, having been found outside and unable to walk. His leg was very badly damaged, and it was unable to be fixed, so our vets recommended that his leg be amputated to give him the best shot at a pain-free life.
Max was only 14 weeks old at the time – just a baby! But after receiving his surgery and rehab, he has fully recoveredand is now living his best life with his forever family.
This lovely lady came to us after being found on the streets — she was blind and struggling to care for a litter of kittens.How she survived, we will never know! When she first arrived she was very protective of her kittens, but as she learned we were safe people she began to trust us and become a wonderfully loving cat. In our care, Cloud was fixed, vetted and found the best special-needs home she could ask for.
Along with Max and Cloud, in this past year we provided two other kittens with amputation surgery after they suffered severe breaks, we took in four special-needs cats and found homes for three of them…so far! One young special-needs cat is still looking for his forever home. He has a head tilt, so he eats a bit differently, but he is friendly and super loving! We also helped three cats with much needed dental surgeries so they could live their lives pain free.
We will continue to do this important work, rescuing cats and finding loving homes for them in the coming years because they all deserve to be happy, healthy, and safe.
