Stella-grant-winnerLook at those mesmerizing emerald and golden eyes… can you believe this little beauty was at risk of loosing her life along with all her kittens? Thank goodness for the wonderful rescuers at Seattle Area Feline Rescue (SAFe) who saved Stella once from an overpopulated kill shelter, and now again by giving her the veterinary care she needs to get healthy and go up for adoption! is proud to be helping SAFe with Stella’s vet care costs with a grant from our Veterinary Care Fund. That’s thanks in part to our generous sponsors, and donors like you too!

SAFe tells the story of how they are helping Stella get her groove back, so she can be adopted: “Stella came to us in September from an over-populated kill-shelter in September along with her four beautiful kittens. Stella had a horrible case of stomatitis and it was determined that she needed to have all of her teeth removed. After a successful surgery in early November to remove half of her teeth, Stella had a spontaneous pneumothorax when placed under anesthesia on November 18th to remove the 2nd half of her teeth and be spayed. The veterinary team quickly performed a bilateral thoracocentesis and were barely able to resuscitate her. Stella is recuperating in a foster home now, but needs to return to the veterinarian to complete the final dental surgery and spaying. She will then remain in foster care while she is rehabilitated and an appropriate home can be found for a beautiful young Torbie with no teeth.”
