Animal Allies Cares for 15 Sick Kittens
Seeks Donations to Nurse Animals Back to Health
Animal Allies Humane Society recently took in 15 twelve-week-old kittens after receiving a phone call from an individual asking for help with the animals.
Upon intake, the medical team performed an initial evaluation: all of the kittens were malnourished, had fleas, and were suffering from advanced upper respiratory infections.
The kittens have started on the road to recovery. Each has been bathed, medicated against fleas, and started on a course or antibiotics.
When they are well, each kitten will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchiped, and placed up for adoption.
However, some of the kittens may need to be in the shelter’s care for some time as they are suffering from eye problems that may require eye surgeries to correct.
“Without help, these kittens would have most likely succumbed to their illnesses,” said Lindsay Snustad, executive director of Animal Allies. “We are committed improving the health of these kittens, but we need the community’s help.”
The kittens will need at least two weeks of care in the shelter, some of them longer.
The cost to provide treatment, medication, care, and otherwise prepare this litter for adoption – not including the possible eye surgeries – is $4,500.
Animal Allies Humane Society is currently seeking donors to help cover these costs.
