Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless cats & dogs by paying for needed medical treatment and assisting with the permanent placement of these animals through our partnerships with local rescue groups.
7/27/21 – RIP JuJu and Dino – They both lived as a community and never left the garage for their rescuer. JuJu was born in the yard in 2016 and Dino had been living there since 2017. First it was Dino who started showing signs of distress although he didn’t appear to be in pain. His belly was getting more and more distended yet his caretaker could feel his hip bones. Dino was taken to one of our most expert doctors and it was determined that Dino had FIP (feline infectious peritonitis). I’ve talked about this disease before and we have paid for others to be successfully given the experimental drugs but those cats were domestic and young. In Dino’s case, our doctor recommended humane euthanasia.Although the caretaker tried to keep Dino from the rest of the community, JuJu, seen here, one month later, started showing the same signs as Dino. He was brought to the vet and FIP was confirmed. Like Dino, this sweet boy, was not domestic and any kind of experimental treatment was not thought possible. JuJu was humanely euthanized.Life on the streets is not an easy one. Thank you to the many rescuers who devote their time, money, and love to these orphans who have no one else. – diana4paws1heart.org
