Faith – Hoping to Make Another Miracle Happen

3/26/16 – We hope to make another miracle happen. Meet Faith and check out her facebook page, All About Faith, to keep updated on her progress. Today she met with Dr. Tari Kern of Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation and Therapy for Pets. Dr. Kern is cautiously optimistic that, with the proper treatment, Faith will be able to walk again (just like our little Chance). Today she received acupuncture, physical therapy, and Shelly (her rescuer) will be putting her through specific exercises until her next doctor visit. Dr. Kern thinks the bullet may be from an older injury and the paralysis may have been caused from a fall, a bite, or a car injury. Here is what the rescuer told us when she first contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart and what was done prior to her visit to Dr. Kern this morning: ~ diana

“Faith is a sweet little girl, about six months to a year old. On March 22, 2016 my mother found her laying in her front yard, unable to walk. She was a stray kitten that my mom was feeding for several months along with another cat. My mom took her to Krause Veterinary Clinic in Armada Michigan where they treated her pain and did an x-ray. Although they couldn’t find any reason for the paralysis, they did find that she was shot in the upper back with a lead bullet. On March 24, 2016 she was brought to my home where I’ll be taking care of her. Her furever home is with my family. On March 23rd I contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart asking for help. Immediately I received an e-mail from Diana saying they will help Faith. We are currently in the process of finding follow-up care for Faith. We need to see if the bullet should be removed. See if she is paralyzed and if so what we can do for her. We have FAITH that she will be blessed with a long life. No matter what, we are not giving up on her. She deserves all the human kindness we can give her to show her that she should still have FAITH in mankind. Faith may have a long road to recovery ahead of her but, along with the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart, we will be with her every step of the way.~ Shelly”faith3:25:16
