  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10557022-10720
  • Hair: Unknown

Olympia is a sweet tortoiseshell kitten (born about April 2016) who was turned in to a local high-volume shelter with what appeared to be a broken “ankle” and a large wound on her right front leg. She was hungry and thin, but managed to meow and rub against the kennel doors between bites of food. A volunteer took her home to foster and then to her veterinarian the next day. The wound was from the kitten walking on that area of her leg instead of the foot - the x-rays did not show any broken bones but severe nerve damage was suspected. The vet recommended amputation of the leg since Olympia had lost all feeling in that foot and lower leg and the leg was being pulled upwards towards her body due to the nerve damage. What caused the damage to her leg is unknown (a fall, hit by a car, abuse, etc).

Olympia is doing fabulous in her foster home where she is being cared for by the volunteer who saved her when her situation was urgent at the shelter. She is a delightful little gal who enjoys exploring the house and she LOVES to play with feather toys and chase the laser pointer! She also enjoys playing with other cats if they are interested and thinks it is cool to watch lizards from her favorite window. She is also a great snuggler and can occasionally be found napping on her foster dad’s stomach while he watches a movie :) Olympia had her amputation surgery on September 14th and is now fully recovered and ready to find a forever home! If you are interested in opening your heart and home to this little darling please contact SCP!

About Second Chance Pets

About Our Rescue Group...

Second Chance Pets (SCP) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 animal welfare organization dedicated to providing unwanted pets a second chance through foster care and pet adoption programs, educating the public about proper care for their own animals and about animal welfare issues, and working with the public, other rescue groups, and public officials to help resolve the problem of animal overpopulation.

Come Meet Our Pets...

SCP does not have a shelter or an office location. The rescued pets, volunteers, fosters, and adopters who comprise SCP come from all over the Galveston Bay area (mainly north Galveston and south Harris counties). Most animals are fostered and loved in volunteer homes until a permanent home is found.

SCP has cats and dogs available for adoption every Saturday at the Petco store at Bay Area Boulevard and Space Center Boulevard. A few cats may be seen during the week at the Petco location

Our Adoption Process...

Potential adopters must complete applications so that volunteers can help adopters identify cats and dogs that will fit best in their homes. SCP volunteers review the applications and discuss pet care responsibilities with potential adopters. The adoption donation typically starts at $95 for cats and $125 for dogs.

SCP tries to ensure that all pets are healthy at the time of adoption. All are examined by veterinarians when they enter the program. All are vaccinated, spayed, neutered, de-wormed, tested/treated for parasites and disease (such as heartworms, fleas, leukemia and FIV) as needed. Cats are vaccinated for FVRCP-C and FeLV. Dogs are vaccinated for DHLPP and Corona virus. Animals are kept in foster homes when available to minimize exposure to disease and to help them be well-adjusted. It is the policy of SCP that no cat or dog may be sent to a permanent home before it is fully vetted, including spay or neuter. All of our rescued animals are microchipped.
