As most of the country was preparing to enjoy a long holiday weekend with BBQs and time with family and friends, the Pets Alive family spent Friday night very differently. Not shopping, not firing up the grill, they cancelled any plans to put their feet up and relax. Instead, the Pets Alive cat team stayed at work well into the night, readying our quarantine space in order to welcome five special kitties who had just been rescued from a horrendous situation. Covered in fleas, urine, and feces, each cat was greeted with nutritious food, unconditional love, and a clean, safe space to start their first steps toward their new lives.
The next order at hand was to to assess their overall health and name the cats – we named them after singers. Some of the cats have special needs like “Steven Tyler”, who is missing a front leg, and another female cat, “Cyndi Lauper”, doesn’t have hind legs. We welcome all of these cats and will work to get them healthy and find loving homes for them.
When you support Pets Alive this is what you’re helping to provide: not just safe berths and healthy meals, but open arms for those that need us the most, 365 days of the year: love doesn’t take time off!
