Facts about Portia

  • Breed: Calico
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 65012
  • Hair: Unknown

Meet Portia! None of us can imagine the terror she went through or the horror of witnessing what happened to her. This precious girl was on a highway ramp when she was struck by a car! She began circling in panic not knowing which way to go to safety and she had been instantly blinded by the impact to her head! Luckily there were angels that saw it happen and two cars immediately pulled over to try and help her. Risking harm to themselves, they still didn't hesitate, they jumped out, made their way to her and rescued her. Luckily she also knew they were angels and didn't try to run.

This angel got her to a vet for immediate care; no one could guess if she would live or die at that point but everything possible was done to insure she had the best chance to continue her life. Several months went by with her recovery. She had a broken jaw and was obviously blind. She was 4 paw declawed, why was she outside? We posted and searched and shared her story and pictures on Facebook, hoping someone would come and claim her, but it wasn't to be.

Months later, Portia resides at the shelter. She tends to flinch when you first start moving your hand to pet her but once she feels a soft touch, she raises her booty and begins to purr. She loves physical attention and hearing you talk softly to her. This little girl went through so much pain and terror, our hearts just hurt for her but we know she is loving the attention and affection she is given and she returns it 10-fold, she wanted to live and she did with the amazing love and tender care she was given at our veterinary clinic Belton Animal Clinic & Exotic Care Center who didn't give up on her! Throwing in the towel was not an option!

About HELP Humane

About Our Shelter...

Who We Are:

HELP Humane: HELP Humane Inc. is a non-profit organization currently run by a small group of animal lovers in Cass County, MO (just south of Kansas City).

All HELP animals are treated by veterinarians receive age appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and those incoming after Oct 2005, have been micro chipped. Cats have been Feluk/FIV tested and are negative unless otherwise stated. Dogs have been heartworm tested and are on heartworm preventative.

HELP now has a no-kill shelter. HELP does not take in any owner relinquished animals. HELP rescues stray dogs and cats from the streets. We have been told by many adopters that the reason they liked adopting form us is because we have a happy place and all the cats are the friendliest ones they had ever met. HELP feels that ALL animal’s are worth saving. We have many FIV and FeLV+ cats in our care. They will live with us until they end their life’s journey or find a permanent home.

Currently we are in a financial crisis and desperately need more funding to continue our mission. We are also currently in need of foster homes. The more foster homes we have, the more pets we can help. We also need more volunteers and a grant writer. Of course donations of money and/or pet supplies are most helpful.

Our regular monthly meetings are at 7:00pm, the 1st Tuesday of each month. At our Shelter at 17122 Bel Ray Place, Belton, MO 64012.
