BENEFITING: Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic
ORGANIZER: Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic
The Fort Collins Cat Rescue & Spay/Neuter Clinic is so special to me because they brought me together with Lassail. Lassail wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for FCCRSNC.Back in the summer of 2013, there was a huge hoarding situation in Merced County, CA. Hundreds of dogs and cats were victimized. From that awful situation, only 80 kitties made it out alive and FCCRSNC took in 60 and Lassail was one of them! She had stomatitis, which is an auto immune condition where her body attacks the plaque on her teeth causing tremendous pain. Because of this, she was hesitant to eat and groom making her a very painful and smelly cat.
At that time she was in a wonderful foster home and her foster mom took her into see Dr. Gloria at FCCRSNC and the treatment plan was to remove her teeth. It sounds drastic, but really cats can do fine without any teeth and after the extractions, Lassail was (and is) a much happier and well groomed cat!
Every time I look at Lassail I think of those 7 years that she spent living in horrid conditions at that hoarded house in CA and am thankful for FCCRSNC and their compassionate staff, volunteers, and supporters for making Lassail's rescue possible.
And Lassail's story is not unique. FCCRSNC saves thousands of cats every year. I am SO proud to be a volunteer, supporter, and board member. I hope you will help me reach my goal and raise $2500 for this amazing organization!
