The Kittens Grew Up!

At times, rescuing animals seems a hopeless task: there are too many animals suffering in too many places for us to save them all! The words 'compassion fatigue' express a reality that everyone involved in animal welfare knows too well.


But there are times when it all works - and it is a fantastic feeling! The kittens that were found without a mother when they were too young to survive without her, SURVIVED! Their human mother did what needed to be done:  she fed them every two hours, massaged them, cleaned them, and love them. She recruited her husband and her Great Danes to help - and the kittens adapted and thrived.


Yesterday, our own Dr. Sue adopted one of the kittens! We know that this kitten will be treated like royalty! And from his initial response, we know HE knows it!! 

Dr. Sue - As beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside - with her happy kitten!

There are many words we can use to describe how much helpless animals need our care and our actions. There are also many words to explain how our staff and our volunteers feel about our mission.
