Our Rescue Group Saves Cats In High Kill Shelters Who Only Have Less Than Five Days Prior To Being Killed

It is not easy pulling geriatric cats who have suffered tremendous stress after being handed over to a high kill shelter, where the downward spiral begins. Loud, slamming cage doors,stainless steel walls and the hard floor of a cage. Food they are not used to or sometimes cannot even eat due to dental problems....but staff doesn't care to check if they have teeth or not.
They begin to shut down and give up.
It takes time to build pledges to save them and we must work on a faster response from pledgers.
There are cats that don't make it two hours after the stress of it all and then being put into yet another carrier to transport out of the shelter...Then there are the ones we have for years....
We deal with URI in 99% of our pulls,and the personal time it takes to be with them as much as possible so they feel they have a reason to beat it,is beyond what we have in a day. The cost is off the charts and takes more than we receive. My Partner works/tends/treats/loves and provides for them 24 hrs a day. Barely finding time to dig out the next group of posted kittys who are already urgent. She is endless in her efforts and again,I am PROUD to be involved with anyone that treats animals this way.
Please find a home for your cat(s) - don't surrender them to a High Kill Shelter for they are most likely going to die. How can you live with your self knowing they will die in just a few days? 25% of cats are adopted from the shelters. The rest are either euthanized, "escape" or are found dead in cages.
