Update: Clover has been adopted and will be living the good life in her ‘furever’ home!

Thanks to all who donated toward Clover and other cats (and dogs) with special medical needs. At the Cat Shelter alone, Clover's vet costs were just over $1,300, but we have also had another cat who needed special medical care. That cat cost NBPAWS over $400 just to get him well again. In addition, we had to do x-rays on one of the CH (Cerebellar hypoplasia) kittens at a cost of almost $190. We want you to know how very much we appreciate those of you who donate towards the special medical needs fund. Your generosity allows us to give the necessary medical care to cats (and dogs) who might not survive without it.

Clover was found in a field near a Hoquiam school, dragging one of her back legs behind her.  She is a tiny, very friendly little cat, under a year old.  We tried to locate an owner with no luck.

We don’t know if she was struck by something, or if her leg was yanked hard enough to break the ball of her femur, leaving her leg bone detached from her hip.  Two veterinarians were consulted on her situation.  It was decided that although they could pursue surgery to try to reconnect the bones, she has suffered a long time with this injury and may have significant nerve and tendon damage; her leg might never be useable.  Therefore, she will need to have her leg amputated soon.

She is dealing with this like a champ, wanting attention and pets.  Because of her youth, she should heal well and live a fairly normal life.  We will care for her as long as it takes, and then will find her the perfect forever home.

Because this is a serious injury, it will require serious funds to deal with it.  By now everyone knows that everything costs more than ever.   Her surgery could cost in excess of $1,000.  

If you have it in your heart and are able to donate towards Clover’s surgery, it would be greatly appreciated.  As always, any donations received beyond what is needed for Clover go into our special medical needs fund to help other cats and dogs that need extraordinary care.  Most people will never know about the many animals we take in that do need special medical help.  We just do what we need to do.

The volunteers of North Beach PAWS unfortunately see cases of abuse or neglect of dogs and cats all too often.  We are grateful for the many people who appreciate our helping cats like little Clover.  Thanks to your generosity, we are able to help cats and dogs with veterinary care, especially when they need it the most.  We are a no-kill shelter, so cats and dogs receive all medical care necessary to ease their suffering, improve their health and to become adoptable.

As always, we are thankful for any donation to help offset veterinary expenses!

Lorna Valdez, President, North Beach PAWS

North Beach PAWS is in desperate need of Volunteers in the following categories:

1. The Saturday Garage Sale: Mike Valdez needs more helpers at the Furniture Store. Please call him at (360)580-4714 if you have a few hours each week (or every other week) you could assist him. He will train you.

2. More Shift Volunteers are needed at the Cat and Dog Houses each week. Ideally we have two shifts every day, but due to the recent shortage of volunteers, we are currently doing several midday shifts at both houses. A normal shift is about 2 hours, with two people working together. The morning shift is 8-10 am and afternoon shift is 4-6 pm. You will receive training from the Cat and Dog House teams. Please call Angie Knaak, the Volunteer Coordinator, if you have a few hours each week that you can help. Her number is (360) 500-1292.

3. Flyer Distribution Volunteers: Several times throughout the year, we have flyers regarding special Fundraising Events and other activities that we need distributed and/or posted in Ocean Shores and the North Beach areas. We could use 2-3 volunteers to call upon to do this. A list will be provided to you of the various locations where they have been posted in past years. (Businesses, Hotels, Restaurants, Churches, etc.) Please call Lorna Valdez at (360) 581-1383 if you have any questions or would like to be on this team.
