Houdini, a tiny baby kitten was abandoned and almost dead due to starvation and dehydration. A kind soul found him and took him to the vet. Aside from his malnutrition the vet discovered he has a condition called Eyelid Agenesis. His eyelids never formed and he is in a lot of pain because his eye lashes scratch his cornea and he is not able to produce lubrication for his eyes. This little angle lives in darkness because he can’t open his eyes with out severe pain. Luckily there is a surgery to fix his eyes and his malnutrition can be reversed. Sadly, it will cost as much as $900. His rescuer is proving care and lots of love and we are asking our supporters for donations to cover the surgery.


Our four-legged friend Flash has been through so much in the last year. He was rescued from an abusive situation, had an eye removed due to infection, then a leg limp worsened following surgery. He couldn’t walk, wouldn’t eat, and it was very hard to determine what was wrong. He had come so far, but his mama needed some help get him the care he deserved. Because of the kindness and generosity of Sustaining Members and donors, Flash was afforded yet another chance. Thank you!


Our furry friend Zander had a massive tumor on his ear that erupted and was in need of surgery to remove it. With the threat of infection, the situation was urgent and his mama could not cover the full cost. She lives paycheck to paycheck and support a child and desperately needed the help from Sustaining Members and donors to get Zander back to 100%. Many thanks to all who contributed to make this possible!
