Helen Keller

Helen Keller is a very special kitty.  She was born normal in a feral colony, where neighbors saw her interacting normally with her colony mates, until one day, when she stopped running and playing.  She was rescued and it was confirmed that Helen Keller is blind. We are not sure what caused her blindness, although it is possible that she ate some sort of poison (most likely rat poison or antifreeze).

Three days before Helen was rescued, she gave birth to five kittens.  Unfortunately a fox killed one of the kittens before the caregiver contacted SNAP to come and rescue Helen Keller and her little family.  Helen was also infested with ear mites and received over $250 in vet care for various medical issues.

SNAP staff named this special kitty Helen Keller for a reason--she is a fighter, she is brave and she is determined to navigate the world she can no longer see.  Her blindness is permanent and she will need a supportive and caring family that will allow her to lead a safe and fulfilling life. Helen Keller is looking for the right family to give her a nurturing home. Could it be yours?

About Our Rescue Group...

SNAP is dedicated to curbing the dog and cat overpopulation problem in Georgia through making spay/neutering services as widely available as possible.

Through the implementation of the county and local TNR programs and by helping to provide wellness services, rescue and adoption programs and education and outreach, we hope to reach our goal of saving lives and money.

We are a Georgia-based 501c3 non-profit organization sustained entirely from grants, donations and the generous and tireless work and support of our many volunteers.
