  2. im-your-fucking-cherry-bomb said: Hi this cat (probably around a year old) showed up around are house recently. She is super sweet and loving. Do you know what I could do?

    Hi there!

    There are a couple things we would recommend, the first would be seeing if the cat has a microchip in order to verify if it belongs to someone and/or if that someone wants the cat back.  Most vets have microchip scanners (and some rescues, like the SPCA, do as well) and it’s just a quick swipe, so there should be no charge to check if kitty has guardians.

    In the event that there is no chip, you can ask around to see if the cat belongs to someone, just to be sure.  Some people are comfortable letting their cats outside and those cats do tend to be friendly.

    And if all of that turns up nothing (as it sometimes does), we would recommend getting the cat checked out by a vet and going from there.  If you are interested in keeping the cat, there are places (again, SPCA comes to mind) that will do low-cost vaccinations and a spay or neuter if necessary.  (Spay or Neuter being very important both for kitty’s health and for cutting down on the number of kittens needing homes in the great, wide world.)  We would also recommend keeping kitty indoors, which is not as terrible as it sounds.  Cats can be very happy being indoor only, and it is often much safer as they are not exposed to disease and other unfavorable activities.

     If keeping a cat doesn’t work with your lifestyle or budget, look for a no-kill shelter that can help you out.  A tip: if you offer to foster the cat (i.e.: keep it temporarily while working with the shelter to find it a home), you’re more likely to get a positive response vs. a straight-up no.  Shelters, unfortunately, deal with overcrowding almost constantly, so offering to hold on to an animal that you are looking to rehome takes some of the burden off of them, and gives everyone some breathing room.

    Hope that helps, and if you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

    Hey guys, I need some help. 
    My mums cat has had an accident and his leg is severely infected. He cant use it anymore and if he doesn’t have surgery to remove it he will have to be euthanized. 

    We don’t know what happened, but he turned up on the doorstep this morning with a mangled, bloody foot. The infection is spreading and he will need to have surgery ASAP. 

    It’s going to cost us $700, and we don’t have any money. We can’t let him die, so I’m asking for any help we could possibly get. Any donation is appreciated, no matter how small. 

    He is such a beautiful boy and he has already been through a lot, he’s an ex-stray that we took in a few years ago. We all love him very much and I need to do whatever I can to make sure he will be ok. 

    Please spread this around. 

    Donate here to help.

    SOMEONE PULLED UP AND DUMPED THESE TWO DOGS Right in front of this good Samaritan »»These are the two that I found dumped at the park off Hwy 17, Tuesday Aug. 12. I had to take the boxer to the Savannah Humane Society and I was able to bring the black one home. We have called him Buddy. Buddy is about 8 years old. He is so loving and affectionate. He is kind and gentle. Buddy is house broken, gets along with cats, dogs and children. Buddy doesn’t care for men, but will tolerate them. I think has to do with his previous situation. Buddy will have his rabies shot done this Friday the 15th. Please let us know if you are interested in giving Buddy a new leash on life.
    We offer transportation if needed!
