Thank You IGA!
North Beach PAWS would like to thank IGA for the generous donation to our matching fund, and their continuous support!
Meet Barney. He recently arrived at North Beach PAWS from a colony in Aberdeen that neighbors had been feeding. Barney had been born with a condition called “entropion”, where the eyelashes are rolled inward so that they are always rubbing against the eye. Imagine having a bunch of hairs in your eyes 24/7! The poor guy had been relying on his hearing and sense of smell to get through the world. He was obviously in a lot of pain and the few times he would slightly open his eyes, they were a bloody red. Dr. Steele looked him over and felt that the damage was not to the point where he would lose his eyes yet and surgery on his eyelids would have a good chance of correcting the issue. The first picture shows him the day after surgery, already starting to open his eyes! The second picture shows him after a week, much more comfortable with having his eyes open. We are so glad we could relieve him of this suffering.
We used the shelter’s specialty care fund to pay for Barney’s surgery. In order to replenish the fund so we can take care of the next cat or dog needing specialty care, please consider making a donation to NB PAWS. We are targeting $750, which will be doubled if donated before the end of June by our matching funds opportunity!
We have good news to report! Barney is home with his colony mates. His caretakers say he is a new cat. He enjoys pets and people. Barney even lets the foster kittens play with his tail.
Next we had a generous response to our appeal to replenish our special medical fund. This fund is used to offer immediate care for neglected and abused animals. Our goal was $750 and we raised $2400! This amount will be matched through the Charlie Utterback fundraising challenge. We have already dipped into the fund to treat a neglected animal suffering from mammary tumors. We and the animals in our care thank you very much!
