Thank goodness for second chances. Emmanuel was malnourished, underweight, congested and flea-infested when Ferndale Cat Shelter took him in. Through it all, Emmanuel remained friendly towards people. He let the shelter staff give him a bath, comb off fleas and even administer medication without fighting.
Emmanuel responded very quickly and positively to a change in environment with proper care. Within a few days his eyes cleared and brightened and he began to put on some weight. Also, his fur became soft and shiny. Emmanuel went from a skinny 3 pounds to 5 pounds in just 3 1/2 weeks with food donated by GreaterGood.org Rescue Bank.
Emmanuel was adopted into a loving family who enjoys giving him toys, scratching posts, and catnip. He was actually the first of his litter to be adopted.
Much of this success story is attributed to the GreaterGood.org Rescue Bank. Because they donated food for Emmanuel, the shelter could use money to provide for his other needs.
Ferndale Cat Shelter commented,
“Rescue Bank donations allow our organization to provide nutritious food and other cat comforts to the felines in our care. We can then focus our fundraising efforts on paying veterinary costs to vaccinate, neuter, and microchip all of the cats in our care.”
We Can All Help
Too many homeless cats are a problem that we can all help with. Shelters are ready to take on as many as they can house, but most shelters could use a boost. By donating to GreaterGood.org Rescue Bank, you are directly being a part of the solution.
If you would like to donate to GreaterGood.org Rescue Bank, know that a nourishment packet will supply the following: 100 meals for a pet, two high-quality stainless steel bowls for a pet’s food and water, and a bag of treats.
The goal of GreaterGood.org Rescue Bank is to feed 4 million homeless pets, but we need your help.
