OUR RESCUE STORIES
RACHEL & MONICA
Please click on thumbnail pictures to enlarge
Finally a feel good story. Animal Aid was asked to help out a pair of adolescent kittens from a backyard colony. Monica & Rachel were 6 months of age when rescued.
Did you know that cats can go into heat at 5 months and get pregnant at 6 months of age. This Fall season the girls could of had a litter themselves. Its very sad kittens having kittens.
They were both immediately taken to the vet to get treated for fleas, vaccinated, spayed and chipped. It is not common to see orange female cats, but Monica is. The girls are now in foster care and can continue to be kittens. They won't experience the harsh outdoor life ever again.
This is unfortunately a story that is on going and unless we can spay and neuter as many as possible to stop the kitten population, all these animals will suffer needlessly. Thank you to our wonderful supporters like Bingo World and Global Pet Foods, we can make a small contribution towards this problem.
CINDY AND GRACIE
Cindy and her daughter Gracie were rescued from a metal welding factory. The factory reported there was a kitten with an amputated paw. The rescuer got the Mom and the kitten and we gladly accepted the family as Mom is never left behind. Cindy and Gracie went straight to the vet the same day they were rescued to get fully vetted. Cindy was treated for fleas, parasites, vaccinated, SNAP tested, spayed and chipped. Gracie was also examined by the vet, as we did not know if she was in pain. He said it was a birth deformity, otherwise she is a healthy kitten, which is good news. They both had upper respiratory infections and they were put on medications.
A day after Cindy and Gracie were rescued, Willa was rescued from a Walmart parking lot. She was under a car and a good samaritan got her to come out with a can of tuna. She was taken to the vet immediately, who said poor Willa had very terrible ear mites and urine scalding on her anus area which is very painful and uncomfortable and an eye infection. She was put on medication immediately.
Willa, Cindy and Gracie all had an upper respiratory infections and they received all the proper medication. Gracie and Willa are the best of friends. They love each other and are very bonded. They were named Willa and Gracie like Will and Grace. The girls have left to a foster and will be adopted together as a bonded pair.
As for Cindy, at first she was shy and scared, but with TLC she flourished and now loves cuddles, kisses and watching tv with her foster mom.
Thank you Bingo world for helping Charities like Animal Aid to help cats like Cindy Willa and Gracie. Animal Aid believes in quality care and a better life for animals.
A rescuer got a call that there was an injured cat that needed help. Many rescues said they could not assist as they do not help street cats. Animal Aid stepped in to help with Veterinary costs.
Summer had a large hole in her stomach. Summer had a kitten but the feeder would not release her.
The vet said Summer’s injury most likely was from an animal bite. Animals are so resilient; she nursed her kitten with that injury.
Thanks to Bayview Woods Animal Hospital who was able take her in right away. She got her wound cleaned and stitched up. Also while she was under anesthesia she was spayed, vaccinated and treated for fleas.
Summer is only 1-year-old, a kitten herself. She went on antibiotics and pain meds. She is a happy little girl that loves human companionship, only better days ahead for her.
Otis is one of the lucky ones. He was so filthy and so severely matted when he was rescued. This was probably the first time that this big boy got shaved down and felt great.
He is a gentle guy that was so happy to be rescued. Otis quickly learned that humans were his friends. Animal Aid and Adoption made sure that he was medically sound and had all of the necessary shots and was healthy, before he left to a foster home. He was quickly adopted and now has his forever home with two other cats as playmates. He will no longer be left out in the harsh environment and have to worry about food or being attacked. He is loved and safe.
This has a happy ending, but for a lot of animals it does not. It is thanks to Bingo World for their support and our wonderful members and our hard working team of rescuers and trainer that Animal Aid can help the future animals out there in distress.
A homeowner reached out to the rescue group that Animal Aid has been supporting, about a cat that she had been feeding outside and that appeared to have an injured leg. She had been feeding him for years and she said that he had fathered many kittens. Two regular traps were set up near his feeding and shelter location, but it did not work. Then, two alternative traps were set up with remote controls. These were being monitored through apps. It took a week and a huge team effort to trap him. Thanks to this caring homeowner, who saw him eating in the trap, pushed the remote to keep him in the trap. When he was taken inside, it was discovered that he was actually very friendly and liked other pets.
With the assistance of Animal Aid, on Monday he was taken to the Vet. They said he was approximately 6 years old, had fleas but his overall body condition was good. On March 21 an Xray of his leg was taken. It was dislocated and he needed surgery. I can not imagine the pain he must have endured. On the 24th he was neutured and had his leg corrected by an Orthopedic surgeon.
He is currently doing very well and is happily recovering in his foster care waiting for a forever home.
It does take a village to help these poor abandoned animals who fight the elements and surroundings to survive. The lucky ones get rescued.
A big shoutout to a good hearted lady who fed him and helped rescue him, to our rescue team who are on call and out there anytime day or night, to Animal Aid for their support, and last but not least to Bingo World for their big support that enable us to do what we do rescuing animals.
Peaches was a street cat that was being fed by a kind homeowner. She was suffering from malnutrition and was always hungry. It soon became visibly evident that she was pregnant. This poor sad little cat was not even a year old herself. A local trapper was contacted and provided the homeowner with a trap. This little cat was very trap savvy, and by the time she was caught, she was about to have her litter. A few days after being placed into foster care, she gave birth to 6 Stillborn kittens. There is a picture of one of them beside her. I did not have the heart to show the other stillborn kittens to you. If she would still have been left outside, she could have suffered mastitis and gone untreated and suffer needlessly. Because she was not nursing, she would have gone into heat and most likely gotten pregnant again. This is a terrible vicious cycle which really needs to be addressed.
Peaches is ok and will be getting spayed next week. She will finally find her indoor forever home and be loved for the rest of her life.
Animal Aid has stepped in to cover all her vet bills. We work with compassionate people like the trappers, foster people and kind people like the homeowner that give cats like Peaches a chance at life. There is so much suffering out there, that if we can make one life at a time better, we will keep trying.
A great big thanks to Bingo World, because of their help we can keep doing what we do.
nimal aid was called in to help out a farm with many sick kittens. A team of volunteer trappers supported by Animal Aid, were able to use their traps & trail cameras to ensure that they trapped all the cats at the site.
There were 15 kittens approximately 6-7 weeks old rescued from the farm. With Animal Aid's support all of the kittens and cats received immediate veterinary attention the same day that they were rescued. Most of the kittens had bad eye infections & upper respiratory infections. As you can imagine while in foster care, these kittens went through medication very quickly. Sadly two of the kittens crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
We got the farm to agree to letting us fix the adult cats and end the cycle, as long as they were returned to the farm to keep the rodents away. There were 7 females and 1 male. The females were spayed and ear tipped. The farm asked for the male not to be returned. He was vetted (dewormed, vaccinated and neutured) through Animal Aids Vet. He is currently being socialized to find his forever home.
This is truly sad, because this is happening all over. If there is a litter in the winter they usually freeze to death. There are no laws to prevent this type of suffering of animals. It is agencies like Animal Aid that try to make a small difference in the lives of so many animals suffering this type of abuse. This is only one farmer out of so many that finally helped. So I thank him for that.
Finally, the kittens are on the road to recovery and will be going into foster care waiting to go to their forever homes.
THESE ARE THE LUCKY ONES
Miso was rescued from behind a Vietnamese Restaurant, hence his name. He is approximately 1 year old and is in good health. The person who rescued him thought he had a sweet disposition and did not want him to be released back to the site for fear that he would eventually be bitten by rats or worse. He also did not want him to be put to sleep as he did not even have a chance at a better life. Animal Aid was called in and he was brought to the vet where he was neutered, given all his shots, dewormed and groomed to remove any fleas. Miso is no longer trying to survive the harsh streets and weather all alone. He is happy, healthy and in foster care, along with his foster siblings waiting for his own loving home.
We thank BINGO WORLD, because of the money raised from them, we are able to help animals in distress like Miso.
This Fella is approximately 10 years old. He was rescued from a cat colony. From the moment he was brought inside, he knew he was rescued and safe. Ernie's had a hard life. The vet said he was infested with fleas and had lots of fight wounds. Ernie has no teeth, you see he has never had proper nutrition and has been in many fights over the years. He has had to chew on hard objects just to stay alive. He will now have a proper diet and he is having his mouth taken care of. His wound has already started healing.
Ernie has a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care) instore for him now. He will never need to endure the outdoor life again.
The pictures above is of Ernie at the Vets and in the spa getting all cleaned up to go to his foster home until he can find his forever home. The top larger picture is Ernie in his foster home waiting to be adopted to his forever home.
Willow is a Sweet, Beautiful 10 year old little girl. She has never really known stability. Her present owner adopted her from a very distant acquaintance 2 years ago and now he wants to be able to travel, so he is giving her up for adoption. Once again this little girl is looking for a kind, loving and stable home where she can trust to be loved and kept. She has been around children and is very affectionate with them. She does however prefer older kids to younger ones, as they tend to smother her because she is so soft. She does not bite or scratch or claw, but will let you know when she does not like something. She has been around dogs and after she gets used to them she tolerates them. She is not shy or afraid to let you know she is the Queen.
She is an indoor cat , not one that you would put outside. She is very clean , always grooming herself, so a good brushing would go a long way. You need to know that she is a long hair cat, soft and fluffy and needs brushing. She is fully trained and never an issue with her litter box. She is very tidy.
She is a cuddle bug and loves to cuddle up with you as long as you want. She does not climb on tables or counter tops, but she does like the couch and bed.
Animal Aid has taken her to the Veterinarian and she has been given a clean bill of health. Her teeth are in mint condition. Just do not give her too many treats. She has had all her shots and is raring to go. If you think this little girl is for you and you can give her that forever home that she so dearly deserves.
PLEASE GIVE ME A LOVING FOREVER HOME
Hi: Have you heard of "Puss In Boots", well that's me Puss - Puss In Search Of A Home - If you are wondering why Puss, its what they call me - here Puss Puss. But, you can call me whatever you like. I am about 3 years old, born and bred outside. A friend of Animal Aid & Adoption was feeding me outside for two winters, but I couldn't take another cold harsh winter outside. My paws and ears were freezing that last two winters. I was so cold with no warm place to sleep. I decided that I would protest and stand at her door and cry loudly everyday. It worked and she took me in.
This kind lady reached out to Animal Aid & Adoption and they took me to a Veterinarian and got me checked over. I am happy to say that I am purrfectly healthy & now micro-chipped. I have had all my blood work done and had all my shots. Ready to go. I have been voice trained, use a litter box and I do not scratch furniture (only the cat tower). I come when I am called and I will talk to you. I like to be brushed and told that I am a very good boy. I will keep you company while you watch TV and even sit on the sofa beside you if allowed. I love Temptations cat treats , so you can always find me by crinkling the bag. I love my bag of catnip and play and carry it like a kitten. I am very smart and if you ADOPT me, take me home and give me love, I promise to love you back tenfold.
Yours always - PUSS
Pepper is a beautiful little girl that was on the verge of being given away. The owner was at her wits end because Pepper was always crying and crying sometimes almost screaming as well as being very aggressive at times. This was a cry for help. The owner reached out to Animal Aid & Adoption and we found that this poor little cat was going into heat every few weeks. We sent her to one of our Veterinarians for a check up and spaying because the owner could not afford to do so. Once spayed this sweet little cat will not be in distress any longer and hence a calmer loving pet. Pepper will be staying in her forever home. The moral of this story is that when you decide to get a pet, any kind of a pet, be informed and educate yourself as to what having a pet entails. This is a responsibility and you need to make an informed decision to take the next step. They depend on you for their safety, well being and yes LOVE. You will get it back two fold.
ANIMAL AID & ADOPTION for the first time, is proud to share the wonderful work that one of the Shelters that we are supporting is doing. This shelter does a lot of great things for the animals that have been abused and abandoned. We are there to support their needs, whether it be for Veterinary Bills to help save an animal, or for food or anything that they may require. Please check out the animals below that are up for adoption and help open up more space for animals that are waiting and in need. We wish to thank BINGO WORLD and the OLG for making it possible to support this wonderful Shelter.
Our thanks to Animal Aid & Adoption for stepping in to help Wellington, who is our 12 year old Wheaton Terrier Poodle mix, "a Winnie Poo". He has been a much loved member of our family since he was 6 weeks old. Recently he has needed medical attention and the Vet wanted to make sure that he could survive surgery.
Through the generosity of Animal Aid, we were able to give Wellington the best care and we are so happy to be able to have him in our lives for many more years.
Thank you Animal Aid for your caring and help.
