Help Gato and Special Needs Pets Live Their Best Lives 🐾
We're reaching out to share the story of a brave cat named Gato, who, like many others, needs your help to live a happy and healthy life.
Gato, a 12-year-old feline, came to us in a dire state, hungry and severely ill due to a painful disease known as feline stomatitis. This condition causes severe inflammation throughout the mouth, making life extremely uncomfortable for our furry friends.
Our dedicated shelter veterinarian, Dr. Holly, worked tirelessly, extracting all of Gato's teeth except for her canines and treating her with antibiotics. Gato now requires steroid injections every other month to maintain her health. She spends her days in our Operations Manager's office and her nights in a custom-built kitty house, lovingly constructed by staff.
How You Can Help
We aim to raise funds not only for Gato but for countless special needs pets nationwide who deserve love and care. Every dollar you donate makes a significant impact, helping us protect the human-animal bond and advocate for the most overlooked animals among us.
Spread the Word: If you're unable to donate, sharing our mission with your friends and family is equally valuable.
