Cheeko was surrendered to the rescue as a special-needs boy. He had been diagnosed with IVDD (intervertebral disc disease) and because of that he has some nerve damage that makes him sometimes dribble urine. He is currently on a homeopathic preparation that seems to help and wears a washable belly band in the house. The grant money assisted Rose’s Rescue in sponsoring his adoption fee.

The puppy was able to be vetted and prepped for a permanent home. This big puppy was adopted! The sponsored dog was Hollywood, a chocolate Lab. From his Petfinder profile: “1.5 years old. Friendly and happy. Playful. Loves swimming. Great companion! Good with some dogs (mostly females). Does well in the home and does okay in his crate. Rides well in the car, also. Could use a little work on the leash but he is still like a puppy. He’s a good boy! He will need activities and plenty of chew toys! He is heartworm-positive but has been on the less-invasive treatment method for a few months already. Should be negative in a year! Will come with meds.”

Veterinary services, including kitten wellness check and vaccination costs, for a litter of five kittens we received in May of 2019.

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

Kittens and senior cats are the two classes of kitties that require the largest expenditure of funds and effort. All of our kittens are given veterinary wellness checks and vaccinations before they are available for adoption. We believe this is the foundation of a good, long life for the kittens. In addition, our excellent veterinarians can detect other conditions requiring special care.

Five kittens

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Perry was the last of a litter of five kittens. After his four siblings were adopted, Perry was desperately lonely until we were able to introduce him to several other kittens about the same age. Perry is very active, but also very loving. He enjoys snuggling on your shoulder for a nice nap, and then will run and jump wildly with his buddies for a play session. Happily, Perry was adopted in early August. His best buddy is now a young cat already in the household, and they enjoy playing together (second photo). His new family reports: “We love Perry! He’s been such an amazing addition!”

Salem was the cat in our care who was older and overlooked by soooo many families because he was not a kitten. The special food helped Salem keep his geriatric digestive system in tip-top condition so that he could concentrate all his attention on giving out purrs to families looking to adopt. He found his forever home after being in our care for several months.

Willow is a 6-year-old Maltese-bichon mix. We saved her from an Amish puppy mill. They no longer had any use for her and were going to euthanize her. We had her vetted and then paid for her to be transported to Maine. In Maine, she was in a foster home for several weeks, learning that people were not bad. She loved nothing more than to snuggle. She was adopted at the end of June by a family in New Hampshire who have another Maltese and she is doing GREAT.
