Aurora aka Hope. This is a true success story. This little tortie is a 3 yr old female that was not supposed to live after 2 yrs of age. She beat all the odds and proved them all wrong. She does not like either one of her names so will only respond and come running if you call her Baby Girl, so that is who she is. Even though shy at first she is a lovebug, but she needs to be with a house of fewer animals. Other cats pick on her because she looks funny. She was left in a local pet store at about 5 weeks old. Her tail was badly mutilated and partially missing, she could not walk on one side and was in pain. It was determined her pelvic had been crushed on one side and as she grew it would cause a blockage in the intestines and she would have to be euthanized. It was felt this would happen by the time she was two years. So the choice was to euthanize immediately or let her live two years. Our foster chose to let her live two years. A miracle happened! Her tail is short and looks funny but she is fine. Her pelvic bone moved itself almost back into place. The bone is not quite even but not enough to notice. The other cats pick on her so she hides a lot but she is a very loving girl and needs a home where she won't be picked on all the time.

About Homes for Pets

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of animal lovers who volunteer our time and talents to help homeless needy pets find new homes. Many of our pets come from life or death situations, or abusive situations. Some pets come from city shelters. We also list animals that are still with their owner, but for one reason or another the owner can no longer keep them. Our dogs and cats live in foster homes, not in a shelter. You don't have to wonder if a dog or cat is good with kids, or other dogs or cats. You will usually know if they are. We work on housebreaking and basic manners as well.

ALL of our animals, even those we list for owners trying to re-home their pets, must be spayed/neutered to help control the serious animal overpopulation in this area.
