MEOW Cat Rescue: Sponsor a Pet Grant Report

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

Medical care

A cat needed diagnostics and surgery for severe dermatitis on her ears.

How many pets did this grant help?


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

This is our sweet girl Harmony and her new human, Karen. Harmony was diagnosed with severe solar dermatitis, a progressive skin disease caused by the sun that can lead to skin cancer in the form of malignant tumors called squamous-cell carcinomas.

White cats are most susceptible and this is often seen on the nose and around the ears where there isn’t much hair protecting the skin.

Thankfully, our friends at Inglemoor Animal Hospital surgically removed the damaged ear margins and Harmony is healing beautifully. She was examined top to bottom and no additional cancer cells were found. We are thrilled for both Harmony and Karen. ???? ????
