Being able to purchase food enabled us to take in an elderly diabetic cat, Jasmine, who was going to be euthanized because her owners couldn’t afford to care for her. As soon as she was diagnosed, the owners weren’t able to pay for all the initial vet care: hospitalization to get a baseline on her insulin levels or the purchase insulin, syringes, or the food she needed. Instead of allowing her to be euthanized, we were able to rescue her. We spent hundreds of dollars to get all the vet work she needed, along with all her necessary supplies and food. She has not been put up for adoption yet, as we have to make sure her insulin levels are stable, and she will require more vet visits for more blood work to check her insulin levels along with her liver and kidney functions.
