Everyday Heros

Wendy

Hello Wonderful Supporters,

Today I want to tell you a simple story about what we do everyday and how anyone can change a life! 

Wendy, the beautiful tabby, got her name from the place she was found- you got it, a Wendy's parking lot! Cat Adoption Service got a call about her from a woman who noticed her several times when she visited Wendy's on her way home from work. One of our volunteers set up a trap and after several days, we finally caught her. However, something was different- she looked much skinnier. The volunteer surmised that she might have been pregnant and had given birth. After a search of the bushes around the restaurant, the precious and healthy newborn litter was found! We took the whole family into rescue, where they are now thriving in a foster home! 

Mother cat Wendy is partially feral from a life on the street, so she will need a special home. Her kittens, however, are people-loving and will be up for adoption soon! 

If you've seen a cat you think may be stray, find out more about it and call a rescue! And remember, spay and neuter your pets and spread the word about the importance of spay/neuter and responsible pet ownership. Together, we can make a world where no animal is homeless!

Kittens Galore!

Summer is a busy kitten season which means rescue groups have to work double time to save as many lives as possible. It can feel overwhelming at times, but the stories of happy endings make it all worth it for us at Cat AdopTion Service! This beautiful family was pulled from a filthy, high-kill shelter in LA several months ago. The shelter is over-crowded and under-staffed and this family had untreated upper respiratory infections. Sadly, one of the babies was so sick with pneumonia that he died a few days after transport, and a second kitten, Stark, was critically ill and hospitalized. Our foster mom, Elizabeth, took excellent care of the family and eagerly awaited good news on baby Stark. It was up and down with his recovery for weeks. Finally, after a long hospital stay and excellent vet care, Stark was able to return to his mom and adorable brother. Fortunately, thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, his other siblings Dorthraki and Lanister have already been adopted. Tararyen, (the stunning Siamese mother), Stark, and his brother Baratheon are all looking for loving homes. Many of our rescue cats have sad beginnings, but thankfully with the help of our dedicated network of volunteers and fosters, we are able to give them happy endings. 

Please help spread awareness about the plight of stray animals and the importance of spay/neuter. And encourage everyone you know who is interested in a companion animal to adopt!

Thank you for all your support!

A Spring of Second Chances

Noey and Nia
Noey and Nia

Dear SD CATS supporter,

Spring is a time for kittens, lots of them! And while we here at Cat Adoption Service have our hands full with new kittens, we have also had some very special adolescents sent our way this spring.

Noey and his sister Nia (10 months) were thrown onto the street to fend for themselves when their owner moved away. In his time on the street, Noey suffered an injury to his leg, which was severely smashed, broken in three places. When we rescued him, the injury was approximately 4 weeks old and he needed major surgery to add a bone plate and stabilize the leg. This sweet loving boy deserved no less than a second chance at life so of course we paid to have the surgery done. The surgeon said the surgery appears sucessfull and with the right care and physical therapy, Noey should gain back good mobility in his leg and be ready for a new loving home and second chance at a good life. 

At San Diego Cat Adoption Service, we are constantly working to give second chances to as many cats as we can; cats that have been discarded by their owners, or ignored and left to multiply by unaware people. We know you care about ending homelessness for cats. Make sure you spay or neuter your pets, and educate your friends, neighbors, even strangers about the importance of spay/neuter for all pets! It's easy to make a difference. If you have questions about how to help stray cats you know of in your neighborhood, check out the information on our website about us and about other groups, such as the Feral Cat Coalition. 

In addition to helping through spreading the word, we really appreciate (and depend on) your donations! There is a great giving opportunity coming up! Global Giving has $75,000 available in matching funds for a bonus day, which will be May 13. On May 13th, between 6 am and 9 pm Pacific time, all donations up to $1000 will be matched at a percentage determined by how much money is raised that day. If you are a recurring donor, or a sometime donor, please mark your calendar for May 13th; giving then will mean your dollar goes further to help us and the kitties! 

Thank you again for all you do to help homeless cats! Have a beautiful spring!
