Urgent help needed! -- Saturday July 17th, 2021

Now that we are moving past this pandemic, and veterinarians are opening to more than just essential business, NAR has several cats that are in desperate need of dental care that we are catching up on. However, donations are still slow, and we cannot guarantee two of our big fundraisers this year to make up any deficit, due to pandemic restrictions. Viola was returned to us earlier this year, and required bloodwork and radiographs to clear her for surgery after a heartworm infection (yes, cats get heartworm, too!). After extensive testing, Viola is now negative. Once she has her dental, she can be adopted into her new forever home. Malibu and Mo need a cleaning and couple of extractions. Mo just had her dental as she was urgent, and the vet had an immediate opening. Malibu had full mouth extractions in May, and has recovered nicely, but paying for Mo and Malibu’s bill makes it harder to get supplies until more donations come in. Carmichael may need full mouth extractions — we won’t know until his appointment, but we need your donations so we are prepared to give the go-ahead when the day comes. The pandemic has affected all of us — and it has affected more than just the humans susceptible to the virus. It has greatly impacted the care that pet lovers are able to provide their pets, and that we, as a nonprofit rescue, are able to provide to the foster animals in our care. Now that we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, won’t you help us help the cats put this pandemic, and the delay in pain relief that the dental procedures can provide, behind them?
