Imagine Home is an all volunteer pet transport.
Perhaps you want to adopt a furbaby that is in NY but you live in Georgia. Due to jobs and other constrictions that may keep you from being able to make the trip to pick up your pet, this group organizes volunteers to pick up and transport relay style to get that baby home at no charge or compensation (besides Karma!). They rely on donations to defray emergency expenses. https://www.facebook.com/notes/imagine-home/numbers-in-a-nutshell-2016/1419676758076857
Big shout out to them that recently gave their time to transport a feral Walmart cat that tested positive for feline leukemia and can not live with negative cats. So with 2 strikes on Wally this group of people stepped up and got him from St. Louis Missouri to Fremont Ohio, his new home at a sanctuary that lets other cats like Wally to live long healthy lives together and be cared for. Dee Dee’s felines!
An update on the Ancona cat that we posted about previously. She is slowly getting better but has had a long road to get this far and has a long way to go, still. Five Acres has our deepest thanks and could use funds to cover her huge vet bill. They have received their portion of the fundraiser, but it was nowhere near enough!
This cat needs rescue. He is labeled “wild” by the ACO, but we have information from the owner saying he is 2 years old, friendly, and they have to re-home him so they aren’t reclaiming him. Understandably, he’s upset in animal control. It makes me so angry when people discard them like trash. Who can help this poor guy?
Midwest Community Cat Alliance (MCCA) would like to thank Emily’s Animal Welfare, an affiliate of Rescue Bank (a signature program of GreaterGood.org), for their recent donation of cat food.
The Ancona hoarder situation (and notorious murder case) put a great deal of stress on our organization and volunteers, participating licensed shelters/rescue groups, other cat-related 501c3 organizations, their volunteers, transporters, temporary and long-term foster homes, and many others. The large influx of cats requiring medical care and TLC strained the finances of each of these groups. This food donation will ease some of that stress and strain and will help MCCA continue its mission of saving cats.
We continue to receive updates on the rescued Ancona cats. Sadly, one developed FIP and was humanely euthanized. But, the rest are continuing to recover and thrive…and a few have already been adopted into forever homes.
