8/11/23: In rescue over the years, we have seen and heard some pretty tragic stories of animal abuse. This one is at the top of this year’s most heart-wrenching rescue stories. We can never lose hope, or faith – even though the world throws its worst at us and then turns its back…miracles are possible. Don’t believe in miracles? Then call it what you want, but someone was watching over these two little girls, appropriately named Hope and Faith. The girls are both Sphynx’s and are about 4 months old.
So what is their story? Brace yourself…
Imagine you are taking a walk at Folsom Lake on a hot summer’s day. You see a blanket on a beach area and it’s moving? You go over to look…what’s this? Two young sphynx kittens and they look to be in horrible shape! What to do? You could just leave…but there was no way you could do that…your compassion and kindness take hold. How could someone do this to young kittens? You gather them up, make some calls, and bring them to a veterinary clinic that has agreed to take them in right away.
The kittens were given immediate assistance to help stabilize their conditions. The kittens had severe eye issues and were extremely dehydrated. That night, one of the doctors on staff took them home to ensure they had round-the-clock attention and care. PPCR was contacted, and when we learned their story, we opened our hearts to these very special girls.
The sad news is…we cannot save the eyes of either of the kittens. They are beyond saving at this point. We can’t imagine the excruciating pain they are in. Faith is extremely visually impaired and Hope is totally blind. The eyes have ruptured and there is nothing that can be done to fix that. The good news is…they found their way to help and to PPCR! Our goal is to raise the needed funds as quickly as possible so they can begin to heal physically and emotionally.
They both will require bilateral enucleations (eye removals) and will be spayed at the same time. These little treasures are survivors and we want them to know that there are humans that really do care! Can you help them believe? The total cost for both kittens is $4,200! This covers all the needed care including the spay.
Miracles don’t just happen in remote villages, or at holy sites, but here in our own lives almost daily. You can help make this miracle happen for Hope and Faith! They need your help! We need your help too, more than ever. Please help make their miracle happen ….donate now.
