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 on the knee of her broken front paw.

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 in the past day had been unsuccessful. Her other teats (nipples) were all dry when she’d been rescued, indicating she had lost her other babies much earlier.

After Sage led the volunteer to some bushes where her baby was hiding, both were safely taken into the carrier.

Sage’s kitten Bas

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.
