FA’s Current Fundraiser

FUNDRAISER FOR RENA’s LIFE-SAVING SURGERY

Rena was rescued by For Animals last year when she was 3 months old.  On her vet visit, she was sent to be diagnosed further and her rare case intrigued doctors.

On Tuesday, July 27, 2021, she’s undergoing surgery to treat a rare congenital heart defect – an extra blood vessel between her aorta and pulmonary artery, through which blood flows in the wrong direction. She’s sweet and playful, but she tires easily and has difficulty meowing because of her condition. Without surgery, her prognosis is very poor. But with surgery this beautiful innocent kitty can live a longer, more comfortable life. Won’t you help save her life?

She is one of only a handful of cats to have surgery for this condition, so she will be making history! Please send your best wishes for her recovery, and please make a donation to help us defray the cost of this procedure, which is estimated at $5900.  (Please see the estimate from the Animal Medical Center)

It is A LOT and especially for a small non-profit no-kill rescue as ours. Any amount helps! Rena is counting on you!

FUNDRAISER TO RECOVER DIEGO’S SURGERY COSTS

Little Diego was found by one of our volunteers Martha in East New York around March 25, 2021. He was walking around looking for food. From the wounds on his body and his scrawny appearance, it was obvious he’d led a hard life on the streets. When she took him to be fixed, the veterinarian said he had entropion trichiasis. The condition is painful, so we scheduled him for corrective surgery as soon as possible. The surgery cost $600, pre-surgery bloodwork was $200 and Diego will also need complete dental (which is quite expensive but we’re raising part of it – so only $200) – rounding up a total fundraiser goal of $1000 and hopefully we can raise a bit extra with the dental – so around $ 1400 if possible.

As you can see in the video-end, despite going through so much, he is just a little sweetheart.

A second chance at life for Dice: Sweet little Dice was rescued from the streets last November by one of our volunteers Martha at 5 weeks old and was placed with a loving foster.

4 weeks later, he had a fever and went on antibiotics at the vet. The fever subsided but his belly kept getting bigger. A return to the vet and a second opinion from another vet confirmed he had FIP (Feline infectious peritonitis).

We found out through another rescue group about a new experimental veterinary medicine that can cure FIP. He needs 5 treatments of this med, and two doses have already been imparted.

But the meds are quite expensive  – around $830 per treatment – so a total of $ 4150.oo – but it’s worth it to save the life of this loving, helpless kitten.

This is a lot for a small shelter as ours, and even though Dice’s foster mom Sheila and a core volunteer Jean have chipped in – 3 more treatments remain – so we need to raise $ 2500.

The treatments are working – as you can see him playing in the video after just 2 treatments. But he still has ways to go.

Please help us save this sweet, innocent kitten. He’s very loving, playful, affectionate and once his treatment is completed the doctors believe he will lead a healthy, fulfilling life.

Dice is counting on you!

Sage the sad mom-cat seen here after being cleaned up and well-fed post-rescue

The sad saga of Sage: Sage a 3 year old mom-cat was found during another separate rescue mission by a dedicated For Animals’ volunteer. Sadly, there are many, many like her who need our help every day.

The rescue mission was harrowing and involved scouting through fierce rain and storms – in the search of her lone kitten that this mama-cat was nursing. People in the neighborhood were not helpful and wouldn’t answer doors.

When Sage had been found, she had a badly broken leg that had curved and fused inwards. It seems she was a former house-cat who was dumped on the streets. Her paw cushions were very damaged from the harsh streets, and she’d obviously had the accident that had broken her front leg. She would walk painfully on the knee of her broken leg.

Even though FA’s director was reticent to take back Sage to her former neighborhood due to the broken leg, it was imperative to do so to track her kitten since prior searches for the little one had been unsuccessful. Her other teats (nipples) were all dry when she’d been rescued, indicating she had lost her other babies much earlier.

Sage led the volunteer to some bushes where her baby was hiding.

Sages baby Basil

Sage’s kitten Basil

The volunteer (Martha) took the baby and then lured Sage back into the carrier by playing kitten cries from her phone inside the carrier.

Both mom and baby were safe with FA now. The tiny 5-week old kitten was named Basil.

As a cute side-note Sage also acted as a surrogate for another little kitten – an orphan we named Thyme – who was found crying and wandering on the streets all by himself. Thyme spent some time with Sage before being transferred to another cat-foster-mom.

While mom and kitty were happy, reunited and no longer hungry, there was still a long road ahead. Sage had to get antibiotics, had a cold and was sick. But most importantly – her mangled-and-fused front paw needed surgery.

Sage was taken to the vet’s for surgery on August 20th. – to leave behind a life of pain. Due to her extensive nerve damage on the leg, the surgeon went for amputation.

Sage’s surgery was a success.

She is now slowly recovering and getting stronger every day. This brave mama-cat truly deserves a better life than the harsh one she’d to lead on the streets.

Since For Animals is a non-profit reliant on donations by kind people like you, we are hoping you will help us cover some of the expenses.

Sage’s is only one story among many. For Animals has been working round the clock with no break even during the pandemic.

While the total number of intakes between May to August which were housed at the shelter and at various foster homes was around 200, in addition to that number – numerous cats were TNR-ed (Trap, Neuter, Release) for population control.

Other than the $15,000+ spent on TNR of numerous cats over spring and summer, several of the cats need dental too which costs  $500-$1100 per cat even with a rescue discount. There are also significant costs for FVRCP vaccines and rabies vaccines for each rescue as well, plus the daily expenses of food, litter, and medicines as needed for the cats who live in the shelter or for supplying food to the senior folks who generously feed our community cat colonies.

Sage needs a forever-home

Our mission has always been to help find loving homes for these vulnerable cats—friendly companion animals or our more feral felines, who make great barn cats. In addition to financial resources we also have a great need for big-hearted people to open their homes to foster and adopt.

Your kindness truly transforms lives. See a few of the examples in the video of just some of the lives that have been transformed. There are many others.

Please help us help the innocent and the defenseless.

Your help and compassion is needed now more than ever.

Any amount helps! Please feel free to enter a custom amount. Thank you for your support!

UPDATE: Sage’s kitten Basil was adopted in November 2020 and Sage herself went to a foster-to-adopt where she faced a long road to recovery and a second bout of illness. She is completely healed now and officially got adopted in early February 2021! We are SO grateful for your help! The other cats featured in this video have also found their forever-homes!


 

Extra: A look back into earlier in 2020

The video below gives a brief background of what we do, and the importance of TNR, and what we went through in March, April and early May – the period when New York City was completely gripped by the pandemic and ASPCA clinics were closed. But FA continued on.

The struggle continues.
