|Some of the work we've done in the first half of 2015.|
March 25 - Lucy and Regal are 2 cats that have been in rescue for quite some time.
Lucy is shy, and Regal is a senior so they have been living in a permanent foster
situation, but HOPE has committed to these cats for life. Just because nobody
wants to adopt a particular cat, doesn't mean that cat doesn't deserve the
TLC of a long, happy life. Both cats just had blood work done (about$120 each).
Regal had purrfect blood work (at 19 yrs young!), and now is scheduled next
week for a dental, as he is need of some extractions($240). Lucy (5yrs) had
abnormal blood work and is getting force fed, antibiotics, and daily fluids to
get her better. She will need more blood work in 2 weeks and in 4 weeks
(ea $120) to make sure she is improving and re check the abnormal values.
Please consider helping us help these 2 wonderful cats!
March 13 - Last night 43 cats and 10 dogs were surrendered to the North
shelter in Titusville. HOPE pulls as many animals as possible out of the county
shelters (last year we pulled 231) to save their lives and prevent them from
being euthanized. Many more will be coming out of the shelter today and
into HOPE, but we need adopters to give these babies a home. Please take
the time today to go on our website and consider adopting a cat in need,
or making a donation to the cats in our care and coming in. It's the only way
we can continue to help more.
February 18 - This is one of those stories that warms your heart.... Larry was a tiny little
black kitten that was abandoned at Pet Supermarket last October. Shylah
was a 2 year old Siberian Husky that was brought into a local vet Clinic in late
December to be euthanized for a unconfirmed seizure disorder, because she
wouldn't come when her name was called. Both these animals were lucky that
HOPE was able to take them in. Ironically they ended up in the same foster
home together. This past Sunday a couple drove down to visit with Shylah as
they wanted to adopt her. When they arrived at the foster home, they witnessed
a bond that only 2 animals that have been through a lot, could have. They saw
them grooming each other and decided they could not separate them. Yesterday
both animals went home together to this amazing couple with a big heart!
We as rescuers know the bonds many animals create once they go into homes
together. These bonds seem to be stronger when an animal has had a troubled
past, almost as if they rely on each other to overcome their fears. Larry and Shylah
slept together, spent a lot of time together, and grew mentally and physically
together while in foster care. To see them go to a home together was tears of joy!
Both Larry and Shylah have overcome so much and they both get their final wish
met: To be together, forever!
