Senior Kitty Valkea gets Needed Care

Posted in Fundraising

October and November bracelet sales benefit No Kill Pima County. NKPC is working to end the needless killing of shelter animals in Tucson and Pima County through rigorous implementation of the No Kill Equation, a life saving alternative that replaces killing. Read more about NKPC here:

Valkea’s mom adopted her as a stray kitten seventeen years ago. She said, “Valkea started to show signs of illness, several months after I lost my job during the pandemic. I worried so much about her and want to make sure she lives her best life, but I wasn’t able to cover all of the necessary costs of a vet visit.”
That’s where No Kill Pima County came in. We were able to help get Valkea seen and on a treatment plan to help. After starting on medications, Valkea started to gain weight and get her old energy back. “My girl feels like her old bright-eyed self again,” her mom said. “At her age, I expected the worst, and while I know I can’t predict the future, it’s just so good that she feels better.”
“This has been a huge relief for me,” she continued, “and I’m sure for her as well. I cannot thank everybody who donates to No Kill enough for putting her on the path to a longer, happier life.”

You can help deserving pets like Valkea by purchasing one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Beading Divas bracelets.
