However, with the grant money, we have been able to take on a Spina Bifida kitten that would have likely been euthanized if she was surrendered to a shelter. Her name is Jessica Rabbit and she is doing very well in her foster home. X-rays and a (very expensive) CT scan confirmed her deformities. The veterinarians believe that she is not in pain and can live a long and happy life – even if she bunny-hops to get around. I’ve attached a picture so you can see how cute she is.
Testimonial from SWA 2013 grant recipient – Karma Cat & Zen Dog Rescue Society
We are setting aside the majority of the money to outfit a ~800 sq ft sanctuary/adoption space for our cats. The project has been delayed a little bit due to some unrelated circumstances but we fully expect to complete this in the early portion of 2014. I really look forward to sending you pictures of that! It will be a (mostly) cage-free living space for 20 to 40 cats and kittens. (Cages will be used for baby kittens and introductory periods for new cats).
