Sterling was left at the front door at Twin Pines Veterinary Clinic in a crate covered with a wet towel. No one knew anything about him. The kitty wasn't eating, drinking, nor walking. After x-rays, it was discovered that his hip sustained a traumatic injury. Paws for Help gave Sterling many laser treatments and worked hard to keep him comfortable. After laser treatments, fluids, and lots of love, Sterling started to eat. Little by little, he came out of his crate to socialize with the dogs and cuddle. Thanks to Paws for Help, Sterling is doing great with his new family. After his hip healed, he became the active and playful kitty he was meant to be. Click here for a video narrative of Sterling's story.
A concerned person found this kitty stuck in the ice on her way to drop her children off at school. Our guess is he was thirsty and looking for water. The cat was significantly underweight. He did much better with good meals, warmth, and care. Grayson is approximately one year old and has found his forever home with a loving family. He loves sleeping in the big bed with his person.
Annie wandered onto the property of a kind woman with a peanut butter jar stuck on her head. She brought Annie to the clinic to help remove the jar. Since the woman was not in a position to care for this young cat, Dr. Cox agreed to care for her temporarily until a loving, permanent home could be found. The Paws for Help program helped to make sure Annie was spayed, tested for feline leukemia (negative), and current on her vaccines. Annie was scared and unsure at the beginning, but with time and love, she has come around. Annie is very loved in her family of humans, dogs, and cats. She likes to be petted, talked to, and loves to be surrounded by her family.
