A Bonded Pair of Survivors!

Posted in Fundraising

August and September bracelet sales benefit Southern Arizona Cat Rescue. SACR is a foster based 501-C(3) rescue located in Tucson, dedicated to saving the lives of felines in Southern Arizona.

Orange tabby Joey and brown tabby Dora were adopted in early 2020 not as siblings by blood, but with a strong bond that continues to grow. A few months after their adoption, they were found together, severely injured and almost lifeless, after accidentally escaping their home. They were surrendered back to SACR to receive appropriate care that their previous owner could not afford. Immediately we started their care at an emergency clinic. Dora needed to have one back leg amputated and her other rear leg required removal of the head and neck of the femur to restore pain free mobility to a damaged hip. Joey was so severely dehydrated that he couldn’t stand. He had bloodwork consistent with a heat stroke, a fractured sternum, and fractures along his spine.

Today we’re happy to say these two are living their best lives. Dora is a tripod kitty, but that doesn’t slow her down at all! She zooms and climbs all around. Joey has mild neurological issues associated with his head injuries, but is on medication and otherwise a happy fat cat! They are loving life in their foster home and are still in search of their forever home as a bonded pair. With all they went through, we couldn’t imagine separating them. If you’re interested in learning more, please fill out an application on our website:
