Here’s what one Tucson rescue is willing to do to save a cat…
The bracelets are also available at Benarda Veterinary Hospital during regular business hours during April.
Tucson CARES Director was at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona for a meeting regarding a forthcoming event and swung by intake to drop off some paperwork just as a family brought in a neighborhood stray with newborn kittens.
HSSA recommended “euthanasia” on this young momma who had signs of pyometra (infected uterus) or dystocia (undelivered kitten/s) and offered a bottle feeding foster for the kittens.
The treatment for either of these conditions is a spay and antibiotic therapy. Late in the day the only vets available to us were emergency clinics with the lowest estimate being $1,200 for the spay and overnight hospitalization, so she was transported on the spot to a more affordable vet in Nogales who met us after hours to perform emergency surgery.
She was hospitalized on IV fluids and injectable antibiotics for septicemia and is now doing fabulously.
Sadie is a loving, bright vocal cat with incredible markings. She gets along well with other cats and seems to be in joyful shock that she is actually in a home. She is available for foster or adoption. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 520-990-8912.
