Marley was so weak and malnourished that he couldn’t stand. 

Because of kind people like you, this gentle, old cat got a second chance at life.

Marley was huddled by a dryer vent when a kind person found him and rushed him to a veterinary clinic in Georgia. The yellow tabby cat was eight pounds under normal weight, severely dehydrated, and chilled to the bone. He had been shaved without care, leaving much of his fur hanging from his body in heavy swatches. He was in such bad shape that several animal shelters refused to take him in.

With help from our Second Chance® Fund, Marley received immediate medical treatment, giving him a second chance at life. He received IV fluids, blood work, X-rays and continuing care to make a full recovery. He was adopted into a loving home. Despite the abuse Marley endured, the purrs and gentle head nudges he gives are proof that he hasn’t lost his trust in people.

Other animals need a second chance. Will you help us heal them, too?

Keep Dogs Safe on the Fourth of July

I used to have a dog, Mo, who hated noise so much that she once broke a window to get back into the house after an unexpected clap of thunder right after being let out.  I would never have let her out, knowing how afraid of noise she was had I known a storm was coming.  Other pets I've had have no problems with noise, but they are all different.  The dog I have right now, Cosmo, was a shelter rescue who has a severely profound fear of cardboard boxes, so I keep them out of sight whenever possible.  He was just a puppy when I got him, but I get the impression that the sadistic individuals who had access to him prior to his adoption put him in them, possibly closing them with him inside for the violent reaction he has when he sees one.   Please keep the noise in mind if you are thinking of bringing your best friend to the fireworks tonight.  Always think of your best friend, because they are always thinking of you.
