A Gift For Biggie!!

We started off this fundraiser as a way to honor moms of all types, including the animal moms we rescue. Today we need your help for our kitty Biggie. He was recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, and his radioactive iodine treatment (which he starts today) is $1500. We love Biggie, and we want to see him get better, and you can be a part of that happening! Biggie would be extra grateful!!

Campaign Details

  

Sometimes it's hard to know what Animal Rescues do behind the scenes, and why they are always asking for money! When you work in animal rescue, you just never know what animal type of  situation you are going be faced with in any given moment.

Take, for instance, the day Theresa (founder of For Animals, Inc.) met Lou. It was early evening, and Theresa was out feeding one of the many feral colonies For Animals, Inc. manages in Jamaica, Queens. Out of the corner of her eye she spotted an unfamiliar cat. Theresa saw that the cat was trapped in a hole surrounded by a fence and cement walls. His fur was matted, and he was very dirty. It was clear that he'd been trying to get to the food Theresa put out for the colonies, and that he'd gotten stuck in the process. Theresa tried to get him through the fence, but could not. She needed wire cutters, and they were back at the animal shelter. Theresa reluctantly got back into her car, and tried not to think about the poor boy's eyes watching her as she drove away. When Theresa returned, she was able to cut through the fence (see the photo on this page), and get him out. Poor Lou's little butt was covered in feces from being trapped in the confined space for so long, and his hair was so knotted his bits were covered and we initially thought he was a girl (Lou's original name was Louise!). Lou was taken to the vet to be checked out. His fur was shaven off, and he received much needed dental care. His legs had atrophied from being trapped in the hole for so long, but he didn't let that hold him back. 

Turns out Lou was an older gentleman cat, and he had a wonderful life with us at For Animals, Inc. for two years! He was well taken care of and loved, always had a full belly, and was able to enjoy the sun in the summer and the warmth of the shelter in the winter. Lou passed away last fall. We were so grateful to know him!

Lou's rescue is just one of the many we experience each year, and we could not do it without your support. Every single dollar we receive from generous donors like you goes to helping all animals that cross our path. We do not receive federal funding or state funding.

With your generous donations, For Animals, Inc will be able to help more animals like Lou, and Biggie, and continue to do the following:

  • TNR in order to reduce the number of homeless kitties that die from exposure, injury, abuse, homelessness and untreated medical problems.
  • Rescue animals from abusive situations and neglect.
  • Provide medical care for injured and sick animals that have been abandoned, are in danger or trapped.
  • Feed our feral colonies, and build them shelters in the cold months.
  • The kittens we find that have lost their moms; we can feed them, vet them, and nurse them back to health.
  • Provide education for the public about declawing, TNR, and animal safety.
  • Fight for animal rights.
  • Maintain the For Animals, Inc. shelter that has many residents!
  • And, of course, we can find homes for our homeless animals!

 We can only continue to do this with your help. Please consider donating today. You will save a life; you help us to be the voice for the many animals that don't have one.  

Please help us help Biggie!!!
