After Madame President was rescued from a euthanasia list at a local animal-control facility, she quickly charmed her caretakers at Tenth Life! Due to her unknown health status at the time she arrived, isolation was required until she could be tested and cleared of all communicable diseases, parasites, etc. We were told that she was aggressive and could not be picked up. While in isolation, Madame President was given the Kong stuffed toy that we received through this grant. She loved playing with it and it allowed us to offer a her a unique enrichment experience.

We quickly learned that she is as sweet as she can be! She loves to play and adores human companionship. She is currently available for adoption. We will send her favorite Kong stuffed toy home with her!

Pictured here are just 3 of the kitties in Tenth Life’s care that have benefited from this generous vaccine grant. The first photo is of Blueberry, a tiny kitten who came to the organization with most of the fur and skin scraped off her back from an unknown cause. The second cat is a young kitten named Lewis. He has a congenital condition called cerebellar hypoplasia that causes a lack of balance and makes Lewis tremor and wobble a bit when he walks. The final cat is Earl, a 12-year-old with hyperthyroidism. Earl receives daily medication and eats a special diet due to kidney issues. All three of these cats received vaccines that were obtained from this grant. Having the vaccines allowed our organization to use funding for medical care other than the routine expenses of vaccinations. Thank you!
