Walk for Cats Like Athens Who Can't Walk for Themselves
Athens was found under a garbage bin, his gentle "meow" a cry for help. He was 2-3 months old and in dire condition, unable to walk. X-rays revealed that this gentle kitten had suffered a spinal injury at some point in his life which had gone untreated, leaving him unable to use his hind legs. Athens is now safe at Tree House. Sadly, the damage to his legs cannot be reversed with surgery however with daily physical and joint therapy, Athens has adapted very well. Seemingly unphased by his condition, he slides/runs down the hallway and zips around corners. Everyday at Tree House, we rescue cats who have nowhere else to go, and who are often euthanized at traditional shelters.
The 10th annual Stray Cat Strut is a 5K Walkathon to support the construction of Tree House Humane Society Adoption Center and Veterinary Clinic, raise awareness of the plight of community cats, promote spay/neuter, and raise much-needed funds to help special-needs cats.
