Carol Danvers is one of seven kittens recently taken in from a municipal shelter overflowing with cats. The funds have allowed us to continue her vetting and prepare her for adoption. From her Petfinder profile: “Hi, my name is Carol Danvers. I am a female tabby and white mix kitty born March 25, 2019, looking for my forever home. I am FELV-negative, dewormed, current on flea/heartworm preventative, up-t-o-date on vaccines, and microchipped. My spay is included in my adoption fee and prescheduled with a local veterinarian. I have been around other cats, dogs, and children. Won’t you please give me my forever home?” Meet her here.

Dory was rescued from an open-intake shelter as a 12-week-old kitten by RAIN. During her examination, it was discovered that Dory’s tail had been completely broken off internally from the rest of her spine. This meant she was not be able to move it, causing pain and open sores on her rear legs and rectal areas. Now that she has had the tail-amputation procedure, she is living a pain-free life and is just waiting for her forever home. Meet her: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/40931656

Hendrix (first photo) is a 3.5-month-old male boxer/pittie mix that RAIN picked up from a municipal shelter when they called for a rescue. He was completely bald with Demodex and massive skin and ear infections. Hendrix has been recovering in a foster home since then and has begun opening up and playing with toys. And having a treat-filled Kong with him in his crate has helped distract him, and as a result, reduce the scratching caused by his itches. Thank you so much!

Meatloaf (second photo) was hit by a car and brought into a municipal shelter. He’d a pretty tough life: He was emaciated and had a massive skin infection, mange, wounds from the car accident, and double ear infections. The 1-year-old pittie is now fully vetted, heartworm-negative, and ready for a new home. He is crate- and housetrained and good with cats, dogs, and kids. He is working on basic obedience and leash manners. Meet him: http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/41231193
