PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR OUR GIRL TRIXIE

Trixie was Rescued at 12 years old by Warren Animal Control during the Polar Vortex. I got the call from Denise and Trixie was picked up at Advanced Animal Emergency. She was in pretty bad shape with a very infected mouth and needing several tooth extractions. We committed to Trixie 4 years ago to be a part of the Chance Team and now that she’s 16, we are still there for her.- diana

CAPONE RESCUED AND IN HIS NEW HOME

1/31/23 – Capone was found on the streets with what the rescuer thought was an impacted gland. Yesterday he was seen by one of our partner vets and it turned out to be an inflamed testicle. The doctor said that Capone was fortunate that the testicle did not become infected. Capone was neutered, vaccinated, and tested and is now safe and healthy in his new home. – diana.

RUN AROUND SUE’S CAT RESCUE HELPED WITH MEDICAL IS NOW LOOKING FOR HOMES FOR THESE 4 WITH 2 MORE SOON

1/30/23 – Priscilla, Duchess Stormy, and Pumpkin were rescued from a large colony of community cats. The rescuers are trying to start a non-profit called Run Around Sue’s Cat Rescue. There are over 30 cats they hope to save and we are working to help as much as possible. These four just needed basic spay/neuter and vaccines but Pumpkin had an upper respiratory infection so Pumpkin needs to return to the vet when he/she is better. I will be posting a few others from this rescue but in the meantime we are thankful to help Tina and Ehren with their rescue efforts. I’ll be reporting on Ozzy and Claus a little later in the week. If you are interested in adopting these babies contact: [email protected] – diana.

Unfortunately, I probably will not hear anything more on this baby now that he has been permanently placed. Again, unfortunately, I rarely get follow up about the animals we help. In this case, the only way I found out about Satin was by contacting someone that I thought knew the rescuer of Satin and she gave me the update. – diana

PENELOPE, BORN WITH A CONGENITAL DEFECT, WILL NEED A HOME AFTER TREATMENT

1/27/23 – An independent rescuer who we’ve helped often, Jem, contacted us about a kitten she was contacted about who was born to an ‘owned’ cat. The kitten was born with a deformed leg and the pet owner did not have resources to get her help. The owner tried many rescues but no one could help. After Jem and I talked about the situation and also pursued a rescue — without success–we decided that if the owner fully surrendered the kitten to Jem, we would start with getting an assessment from a doctor. The owner was in agreement with surrendering Penelope because she just wanted what was best. The other 3 kittens born to her cat had been placed in furever homes; the disabled kitten was the only one of the litter left. Yesterday Penelope saw the veterinarian and Jem reported the following:

“Penelope is about four months old and was born with a congenital defect in her pelvis and spine that makes her left leg give out. She bunny hops instead of dragging that leg, so there is no friction burn. At this time her joints look very good so she does not require surgery. Penelope’s back end is in rough condition. She has very thick skin in her genital area and an infected laceration. After antibiotics, she will be able to get bloodwork, and ideally the genital issues will have improved. If necessary, medical correction of the tissue will be done during her spay to minimize discomfort. Penelope’s treatment goal is: antibiotics to eliminate the infection between her anus and vulva, along with the UTI. Once that is taken care of, she will be spayed and have reconstructive surgery done on her back end to remove abnormal tissue and make her vulva able to pass urine correctly. She will also be vaccinated. After that, she will be up for adoption. According to Dr Panchal at Southpointe Veterinary, Penelope should be able to live a happy life with the assistance of chronic pain management. She will be eligible for adoption after her spay.”

Anyone interested in adopting Penelope should contact Jem at: [email protected] – diana

Thank you for sharing Diana & for 4p1h doing everything to help Penelope! I encourage anyone interested to contact me through my email or if it’s easier, DM on messenger (facebook). She is already doing much better after only two days of antibiotics and an NSAID. – Jen

GIMLI RESCUED AND BEING TREATING BUT NOW NEEDS A HOME

1/26/23 – Gimli was saved at a trapping location after being attacked by another male who the rescuers are still trying to catch. He turned out to be quite friendly but has a healing puncture wound on his head and a few other spots with scabs on his neck. His ears are impacted and infected with ear mites, bacteria, and yeast. He has an appointment tomorrow at a very caring clinic/shelter, Eaton County Humane Society. He will be neutered, vaccinated, tested, and treated for his ear issue as well as anything else the doctor may see. He seems to be a very young adult and when his ear heals, he will be up for adoption. Anyone interested should contact Julie at: [email protected]m We have assisted Julie with tnr for several cats and we are very thankful we can help her with sweet Gimli. – diana.
