Many animals that we rescue often come from horrid conditions especially those from cat and puppy mills and backyard breeders. The shelters we support are 100% non-kill home based shelters and our volunteers do everything they can to save every animal. Sadly, despite rigorous veterinary and nursing care, not all the rescued animals survive to make it to be adopted.
We would like to dedicate this page to remember our furry friends that are forever etched in our memories and to know that they were once given the love and affection they deserved.

Maury was a very sad, but affectionate cat. Although he was only 4 years old, he looked much older because he had a very rough life outside. He was abandoned by his owners when they moved and ended up living in a ravine. Unfortunately, he was constantly beaten up by other cats in the area until a nice lady rescued him. Upon veterinary examination, it was revealed his teeth were in a horrendous state and Maury’s health was clearly deteriorating and sadly, he never made it to his 5th birthday. Even though he has a short life, he was loved during his final months in his foster home where he was nurtured and safe at last.

Thank you for sharing their stories and for your compassion and work. This page is a beautiful way to remember these precious souls. Maury’s story is so sad and unfortunately very common this poor baby. I have to ask what happened to the other two? They are so precious. RIP.
Hi Stacey, thanks for your kind words. Some of the sickest cats we’ve taken in have been from backyard breeders who raise animals in horrendous conditions, with no sanitation protocols and some are so neglected that by the time they get to us, they are in very poor health. If you look under “In Rehabilitation”, Holly came from one of these breeders and we are still rehabilitating her. Poor Pip and Shadow came with a terrible respiratory illness and despite rigorous medical care and nursing care from our veterinarian and foster mom, they sadly didn’t make it. We are glad to say at least, they were very loved while they were in our care, and we still miss them greatly.
