Dexter was a stray kitty living outside, and lucky for him a nice woman noticed him and started caring for him. While this sweet woman was full of love, she had little money but was doing the best she could to help him. ART funded his neuter not too long ago and recently we paid for treatment of a wound on his paw. Dexter is a friendly kitty so we asked the woman why she didn’t bring him inside to be her pet. She replied that she couldn’t afford shots and worming, so ART helped her with those bills as well. Dexter is now welcome in her home and is getting use to his newly found luxuries in the comfort of a home. Thanks to our generous Sustaining Members, Dexters live has drastically changed for the better. A huge thank you to you guys!

This is Big Boy. One day while playing outside, Big Boy sustained an injury to his eye. The injury was so great it required full removal within a 24-hour period. Big Boy’s momma, being on a limited income, was not able to cover the full cost of the surgery. She was able to raise $300 through the kindness of her friends. ART was able to find a vet that offered a discounted rate for the emergency procedure; however, the full cost of Big Boy’s surgery was much more than what his momma had raised. ART then reached out to its generous supporters and was able to raise the remaining $700 to pay for the cost of the surgery for Big Boy’s eye.
