Tri-Cities Animal Shelter asked for help for a special kitty named Bella back in January of this year. She had been adopted out and returned after only one day. During her exam at the shelter they suspected she might possibly have ringworm. Ringworm is contagious and definitely something you do not want in a shelter environment. This little girl definitely touched someone's heart because someone stepped up to help. A foster for the shelter who resides in Streetman, Texas offered to foster Bella and treat her for ringworm under the condition she had a place to go when she was ready. Recently, the shelter contacted us again and told us Bella was ready to go and asked if we could take her. It took a lot of coordination but the foster drove Bella to the shelter and a NBCR volunteer drove from Garland, TX to Cedar Hill, TX to pick her up.
From there Bella went to the vet, got spayed, vaccinated and retested (still FIV+) and placed in a foster home. Bella is a super sweet girl with lots of personality. The attached pictures and photos were taken while she was still at the Tri-Cities Shelter. She apparently likes to head-butt and rubs up against things a lot and it appears she is even smiling :-). This is just one of the amazing kitties we were able to rescue from a city shelter and a great example of the things you can make happen with your donation.
