CURRENT FUNDRAISER: MADDIE’S LIFE-SAVING TREATMENT

Maddie’s treatment

 

 

o o o

Maddie the cat has a sad backstory and deserves every chance to live a fulfilling life for the rest of her remaining life where her love is returned fully and without her having to face abandonment. Maddie was rescued from one of the meanest areas in Queens, NY, in mid-April. She had lived a sad, hard, unloved life on the streets for some 6+ years, scrounging unsuccessfully for food and shelter, and abused by cruel humans and picked on by other strays.

When For Animals’ volunteer Maddy first received the text from a concerned citizen visiting the neighborhood, they kept referring to the cat as a “kitten” who was living on a dilapidated site, which was soon going to be constructed upon, and that the “kitten” had faced human cruelty in the past. Turns out – she was no kitten – but an adult just SO severely emaciated and starving, that when For Animals volunteer Martha rescued her, and she was taken to Theresa’s shelter – she ravenously ate for several straight days – she’d starved for so long. (See video above)

Covered with wounds and lacerations from her hard life on the streets, Maddie was extremely grateful to be rescued and was soon transferred to our Adoption Alcove in Park Slope, Brooklyn, where she would sleep for hours and hours – finally feeling safe where she didn’t have to fend off attacks on the streets.

The volunteers there loved her and while adoptions’ coordinator Jean saw to her healing, volunteer Tess took videos of her transformation from scared, heartbroken street cat to a loving cuddlebug who couldn’t believe her luck.
 
Much to Maddie’s (and our) joy, she was adopted in late May, and proved to be an ultra-loving, cuddly, wonderful and sweet cat.

But sadly, through no fault of Maddie, her adopter decided that her new work schedule wouldn’t suit her, that she didn’t want to get a sitter, and decided to return Maddie informing For Animals on August 4 of her decision that she no longer wanted to keep Maddie.

Unfortunately, the timing couldn’t have been worse – as Maddie’s crucial vet stay is on August 9, where she will get an iodine injection and will need a place to recuperate once discharged.

You see, when For Animals, had taken Maddie for her initial check-ups, vaccinations, spay etc. it was found that she had a murmur in her heart. A cardiology consultation and subsequent tests led to the diagnosis that poor Maddie had hyperthyroidism – which, fortunately, can be curtailed with treatment.

She also needs extensive dental work which needs to be done after the treatment of her hyperthyroidism. For Animals had already committed from the start to take care of Maddie’s vet bills as her conditions were pre-existing before adoption. (It’s just unfortunate that she is being returned at such a vulnerable time and state, when she needs a home the most. Instead, she’s losing it.)

All in all, it has been a rough ride for Maddie, but also for For Animals – which has had one of its most trying years since its inception due to rising costs, several expensive cat emergencies and the humongous workload that tripled during the pandemic year.

You can check out Maddie’s treatment diagnoses and estimates in the documents attached below. (CLICK TO ENLARGE)

 

Based on the prior and upcoming expenses, we need to raise around $ 5000 (LIVS treatment $ 1700, which could possibly have repeat treatments thereby doubling costs; the estimate by the Animal Endocrine clinic was 3250), Dental $ 1200, VERG cardiac costs $ 730, Vet check-ups, CBC tests, T4 tests, blood work, meds etc. – $ 1200, follow-up visit estimates – $ 400 – 600.

As a small non-profit already burdened with our daily expenses (see videos from last year) this is a LOT. We’ve also sadly had a string of really sad cases where the cats needed expensive treatment and we could not let them go without giving them a chance to survive and thrive which the vast majority of them did.

So we’d be VERY grateful if you can support Maddie in whichever way you can.

 
Maddie, according to her (now former) adopter is a “bundle of love.” She is very loving, cuddly, likes head-scratches, playing with her toys and comes running to greet you at the door when you enter your home. This sweet cat deserves a shot at true love and security after her struggle-full life on the streets for over half a decade. Please help Maddie! She’s counting on you!

RENA’S FUND FOR FELINE-FRIENDS

Rena’s Fund for Feline-Friends
Rena’s Fund for Feline Friends:

Updates: August 20, 2021. This fundraiser has now been converted to one in memory of Rena for her Feline Friends. You can read the full story HERE

July 27, 2021. 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 is 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. [UPDATE: July 28 – The AMC after checking on Rena decided to postpone her surgery to a later date and recommended increasing her current med dosage, after which they will check further and then reschedule her surgery. Thank you so much all for your support!]

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!
