ANOTHER EMERGENCY RESCUE

Yesterday we were contacted regarding a family of cats and kittens living in a hoarding situation.

When we arrived our hearts broke...

What we were confronted with was quite frankly too shocking to photograph to show you.

We were informed that there were 6 kittens (and some adults) but we only found 3 and were only able to rescue 2 as we were unable to reach the third one.

These two gorgeous boys were living in indescribable conditions. There was stuff everywhere literally stacked up from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, only leaving a path from room to room for us to walk through.
The feeling of claustrophobia was at times overwhelming for our staff.

There was rotten food and faeces everywhere, not only on the floor but also up high like the kitchen counter. The litter trays looked like they hadn’t been cleaned for months. All of them held dirty litter, old faeces and maggots. Sadly, we even found the corpse of a canary.

These sweet brothers were bathed, flea treated and wormed as soon as they arrived into our care.
We thought the ordeal for these little ginger ninjas was over but this morning the biggest shock of all.

Their carer woke up to find something hanging from one of the kitten’s bum....

After close examination she was able to pull out FOUR tapeworms approx 15cm long!!!!!
When she cleaned their litter tray she found another two!!! Please Note: this is shown in the last photo which can gross people out.

We know that hoarding is a mental illness which many people suffer from but to be honest it’s hard for us to understand how anyone can provide such little care to such sweet babies.

Needless to say; we are off to the vet this morning.

We must remember that there are still four other kittens and some adult cats living in this hoarding situation. We will continue to try to rescue and save as many of the remaining cats and kittens we can but we need your help.

PETS & BUSHFIRES

First and foremost we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all the brave men and women fighting the devastating fires attacking Australia at this moment.

What will you do with your pets on days of high fire danger?
*If you are leaving early with your pets, remember to prepare your pets as well; have bedding, food and water ready to go and make sure you can transport them – always put your own safety before the safety of your pets.
*Know where you could house your pets if you decide to leave early. This may include boarding kennels, a relative/friend’s place or you may be able to keep them with you.
*If you choose to keep your pets with you, confine them early. Pets are safest inside a secure room, on a lead or in carriers. Make sure they have plenty of water to drink.
*Have towels and woollen blankets available to cover and protect your pets.
*Make sure your pets can be identified easily. Microchip your animals and include your details such as your phone number on collars. The National Pet Register provides free identification for cats and dogs.
*Discuss with neighbours about protecting your pets if you are not at home during a bushfire. Keep in regular contact with your neighbours during the fire danger period to let them know your plans.
*Keep your Bushfire Relocation Kit for pets within easy reach so you are ready to leave early.
*Practise how you will move your pets if you leave. It takes longer than you think.

Your Pet Bushfire Relocation Kit should include:
*Food and water
*A bowl for each pet
*A second collar and lead
*A carrier for cats and smaller pets
*Bedding and a woollen blanket
*A pet first-aid kit – seek your vet's advice
*A favourite toy
*Any medications, along with a written list of what they are
*Your pet's medical history, including proof of vaccination
*Microchip details
*Your vet's contact details

Pet injuries and heat stress
*If your pets have suffered burn injuries during a fire, they must receive immediate treatment. Take your pets to the nearest vet clinic or animal shelter as soon as it is safe to do so.

Hot weather
*Heat stress in dogs and cats occurs when they are unable to maintain their normal body temperature on a hot day. On all hot days, especially days of Severe, Extreme or Code Red fire danger, keep your pets as cool as possible. Keeping your pets comfortable on a hot day is your responsibility.

Look for the warning signs:
*Excessive panting
*Salivating
*Pets that whine or seem agitated.
*In cases of severe heat stress or heat stroke, pets may stop panting and vomit.

If your pet shows these symptoms, consult a vet immediately. Keep your vet’s contact details in your Bushfire Survival Plan

Tips for keeping pets cool
*Have fresh, cold water available at all times
*Ensure your pet has shade at all times or bring them inside into a cool room
*Wipe your pet down with a cool, damp towel or leave wet towels out for them to lie on
*Wet your dog with cool water several times throughout the day
*Consider buying a wading pool for your dog
*For cats, rub damp hands over their coat or along their tummy
*Place ice blocks in your pet's water bowl
*Place ice in a pillow case and place it near your pets
*Consider having your dog clipped if their coat is long and thick
*Never leave your pets in a vehicle on a hot day

MAY YOU & YOUR PETS ALL STAY SAFE....

Remembrance Day 2019...

Did you know.......

Most people are unaware that as well as the traditional red poppy there’s also a white poppy which symbolises peace and the purple poppy which remembers the animals that have died during conflicts.

These animals include: horses, donkeys, dogs, pigeons and even cats!

To commemorate all the animal deeds and sacrifices in war the Australian War Memorial has issued a purple poppy which can be worn along side the traditional red one as a reminder that both humans and animals have served and continue to serve together....

We Remember...

EMERGENCY RESCUE!!

This gorgeous and sweet boy is named Frankie.

Frankie is a 5 month old Domestic Short Hair who was taken to the pound with a broken back leg.

As you can see by the photo, Frankie's leg is so badly broken that approx an inch of his femur bone is protruding out.
Please note: this is from the third photo onwards and it might be distressing to some supporters.

As you can imagine with such a severe injury Frankie was suffering excruciating pain.

Frankie was assessed by our wonderful vet within an hour of arriving into our care. It was agreed that Frankie will stay the night at the vet hospital to get his pain under control as performing any surgery without the pain being managed increases the risks of the surgery.

Sadly, Frankie's leg is so severely injured that it is unable to be saved so Frankie will need to have his leg amputated.

We were shocked and disgusted to find out that this type of injury is often caused by someone pulling or “yanking” Frankie’s leg in an abnormal angle with brute force.....yes, Frankie’s broken leg was likely caused intentionally in an act of cruelty.

If you would like to help Frankie, you can do so by making a donation to:

BSB: 062 300
ACC: 1046 4718

All donations above $2 are tax deductible; please contact us if you would like a receipt.
