HOPE Animal Shelter Rescues Savi, a Cat Imported from Russia

Posted in Fundraising

Beading Divas May-June fundraising partner is HOPE Animal Shelter, Tucson’s first no-kill shelter and sanctuary for dogs and cats. HOPE’s life-saving mission is to reduce the suffering of homeless cats and dogs by providing them a compassionate, enriching environment, appropriate medical care and loving, permanent homes.

Meet Savi, one of our sanctuary cats that calls HOPE his furever home! Before HOPE, Savi was imported from Russia to breed. As the story goes, he was kept in a cage and given no enrichment. He bit the breeder and she turned him into PACC to be euthanized. Fortunately, PACC reached out to HOPE and we took him in. He was unpredictable, and after a consultation with our vet he was put on medication…and it worked. Savi is now a sweet and cuddly boy loved by all at HOPE.  He likes cuddling on laps, playing with wand toys, and getting treats from his people. Savi is a perfect example of second chances. He has a room full of cat trees, toys, and a couple other cats he adores. Savi even has his own Catio to lounge in!

Look at the gorgeous colors in “AMBIENCE” – waiting for you in our Etsy shop!
