PLEASE SUPPORT US TO SUPPORT THEM
Many cat rescues like to concentrate their efforts on helping the attractive cats, the young and all those adorable fluffy kittens. Admittedly they are easy to re-home and there is always credit in numbers but so often the unattractive and ailing cats get overlooked and forgotten.
All cats deserve to find their perfect forever home and we never ignore any cat that needs a helping hand but at Second Chance Portsmouth Cats our priority has to be the old, the sick, the injured, the abandoned, the vulnerable and all those scared, smelly Tomcats nobody wants in their area, after all it isn’t all that long ago that those smelly Tomcats were those adorable fluffy kittens.
Often they are rescued from the most hopeless situations and the neglect they have endured can mean frequent veterinary visits. Neutering, microchipping, treatment for fleas and worms, de-matting of fur as well as dental work are the most common treatments, often followed by an absolute palette of medication, antibiotics and vaccinations. Then there are the more serious operations that regularly need to be carried out, anything from broken bones and gaping open wounds to neurological problems.
At this point our network of volunteer foster homes come into operation. They help to ensure rescued cats recover from the trauma of their past and become, once again, sociable loving pets. They give love, administer medicines and carry out vet runs while making sure they have warm, clean beds and regular meals.
It will come as no surprise that all of this comes at a price. Without a great deal of fundraising and the support of so many of our followers we would not be able to maintain this level of service or treatment. So please, if you would like to support our work please press the donate button.
It is quite possible that the help afforded by your donation may well be the first care, attention or affection that they have ever known.
