Cat Adoptions for Everyone!

Meet Ruffles {Love Fund}

Ruffles arrived at our shelter last week, after animal control found him tied to a post with twine.  Although the twine looked to start around his neck, in trying to free himself, he wriggled a piece of it down his body, around his waist.  When the animal control officer found Ruffles, the twine was so tight that it was literally sawing him in half.  Ruffles was suffering from a major injury, was stressed and terrified of human interaction when found.  Had he been there any longer, and continued to try and free himself, he may not have survived.

Once Ruffles was safe with us we performed the surgery he needed, and he is now healing both physically and mentally. Thanks to our amazing medical team, staff and dedicated volunteers who have spent countless hours supporting him in his rehabilitation journey, Ruffles is re-introducing himself to the world, gaining trust of humans, and gently getting back into taking walks.

Lately, Ruffles and our volunteer Carl have been sitting in the lobby each day, comfortable and safe, taking in the passersby.  Ruffles is even making new friends and getting a few pets! 

By donating to our Love Fund, you are making it possible for us to continue to save pets like Ruffles.…
