Story
SPECIAL NEEDS KITTEN Say hello to Margo! Margo was a farm kitten brought to ICARe for dragging her back legs. At the shelter, she was able to stand, but had a very messy back end full of maggots! The next day was a spay day, so she went to get checked out by one of the vets there. Margo had a LOT going on. Her bladder was enormous - she hadn’t been urinating on her own. Her colon was so full of stool that it was ten times it’s normal size. Under anesthesia everything was emptied, she was spayed, and vaccinated. Since her ability to urinate on her own was questionable because of potential damage/inflammation to her urethra from the maggots, we asked a volunteer vet tech to keep an eye on her. If she wasn’t going to be able to urinate on her own, she would have been helped across the rainbow bridge. That night, and even the next day, urine was leaving her body, sometimes leaking into her fur, sometimes where she was laying, but at least she could go. She seemed “off” in her back end, we sort of assumed it was from everything that had to happen while under anesthesia. Nope. She is weak in the back end. Xrays don’t show anything broken. After an exam, the assumption (because she was a farm kitten) is that there is a possibility of something yanking on her tail and causing nerve damage that may or may not ever improve, and could potentially get worse. Margo can feel things in her back end, but things don’t work quite right. Margo will need a special home. Her stools continue to be a problem that may or may not be related to whatever else is going on. She requires some daily medication to keep her stools soft enough, and when she is old enough she should be on a special food to help as well. She needs daily checks to make sure she isn’t getting too backed up, and sometimes some gentle help gets things moving. So far she doesn’t seem to be trying to go on her own, it just happens, so it isn’t always in the litterbox. Margo also likes to hold more urine in her bladder than she should, but does eventually go in the litterbox - most of the time. Part of that is from being a farm kitten - litterboxes are new to her! Margo needs to be with someone that is capable of keeping a very close eye on her (as in daily feeling her abdomen for the amount of stool present, and checking bladder size). Due to holding urine in her bladder longer, she will always be at increased risk of things like bladder infections and urinary crystals/stones. As long as she continues to be weak in the back end, she MUST ALWAYS STAY SKINNY. If she gets heavy, she will be less able to move, and may stop walking completely, and that brings with it a whole host of extra problems for her. Do you think you might be the person able to take on this special girl? Contact ICARe for adoption information! She is spayed, vaccinated, felv/fiv negative, no more ear mites, and no more intestinal parasites. In the meantime she will be bunking with our volunteer vet tech while she gets some “physical therapy”, a few more laser therapy treatments (it may or may not make a difference for her, but it can’t hurt!), and maybe some more acupuncture. Margo is still a bit of a shy girl (farm kitten life!), but when she relaxes she has a wonderful motor and will happily head and nose boop your nose/face.February 21, 2024, 7:06 pm

Joanna is a sweet and beautiful girl! She was left abandoned in her carrier in front of our shelter and is now in need of a loving home.  Joanna has tested positive for Feline Leukemia.  This means she must be either a single cat or in a home with other Leukemia positive cats.  It is not contagious to either dogs or people.February 21, 2024, 7:06 pm

Winter and Ginger love each other! Winter is unsure normally around other cats. All Pet Central animals are up to date on age-appropriate vaccinations, spayed or neutered, microchipped (registration included), and current on parasite prevention. Dogs over six-months of age are heartworm tested. When adopting, we will ensure that you receive copies of veterinary and microchip records. If you are interested in this pet, please fill out the brief Adopter Survey by hitting "Apply for Adoption" on the profile. After we review your completed survey we will contact you by phone or email within three business days. We're primarily a volunteer organization, so we appreciate your patience. Please note- Out of respect for our volunteers and staff, we are closed on Sundays and Mondays and will not be processing any applications on that day. Do get back to us right away when we call or email regarding an application so that we can quickly connect using the process below: Select a pet and submit an online adoption survey. A PCH adoption counselor will contact potential adopters within three business days (PCH cannot guarantee any pet's availability, but we make every effort to accommodate adopters with a reply and possible alternative suggestions). Counselor and client will then have a conversation to answer questions, discuss any medical needs for the pet and determine the suitability of a match (if necessary, we may opt to put adopters in touch with foster parents). After a match is made, clients will be asked to sign our adoption agreement and pay the adoption fee online through our secure payment system *Please see our modified no-risk return policy. (below) The PCH adoption counselor will then set up a specific appointment time and location. Adopters should bring a pet carrier and leash to pick up. Adult pets will be wearing a collar. It is important that clients arrive on time, neither early nor late. If your adoption is scheduled at Pet Central Helps!: Upon arrival inside the Crossroads Center complex (360 Wylie Drive), look for the black Pet Central Helps! semi-trailer, which is right outside of our facility (Suite 720). Park in the parking lot and enter the facility. A PCH representative will greet you and show you to the adoption room. Your new pet will be handed to you. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. If your adoption is scheduled at PetSmart: Park in the PetSmart Parking lot and enter the store. We will be set up just inside the store entrance. Let us know you are here to pick up your pet! A PCH representative will confirm your information and hand you your pet. We will take a "Happy Adoption Day photo with your pet and family. PCH supports a 21-day no-fault return policy in which adopters are given the opportunity to find a better match. If we are not able to provide advice/tools to keep a pet in the home we offer these options: Exchange for a pet that may be a better match** Receive a refund minus a $40 processing fee** With this approach, we can often turn mismatches into opportunities! Thank you, Pet Central Helps!
