Please, donโ€™t declaw! ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿพ

Associated Humane Popcorn Park Shelter
If You Think Declawing is OK, Ask Reeses How He Feels About It....
In this day and age, we are always shocked when we speak to potential adopters or pet owners and they mention that they declawed their cat, or are considering declawing their cat. Although declawing is considered an act of animal cruelty in many countries, it is still legal here in most of the United States. Sadly, when pet owners take their cats to veterinarians to have them declawed, many will do it, but thankfully, more and more are offering alternatives to this cruel practice.

The term, "declawing" is a term that was given to the surgical procedure of amputating the distal phalanges (bones) of the feet. While "declawing" may sound nicer than, "amputating" to many people that justify lopping off the tips of their cat's toes, it's the same thing. Regardless of what you may hear, it's painful, it's risky, and declawing can cause long-term health and behavioral effects. The effects documented in scientific studies of declawed cats include: not using a litter box, weight gain, biting, aggression, chronic pain syndrome, and arthritis, just to name a few.

Many of the declawed cats that are surrendered to our shelters at Associated Humane Societies are turned in for these very reasons. Little do their owners know that what they are giving their cat up for could have been prevented had they just purchased a scratching post, kept their cat's nails trimmed, and put a little effort into proper cat ownership.

Of course, many will justify declawing a cat because of their own health problems. Perhaps the person is on blood thinners, perhaps they have an illness that could worsen if they sustained a scratch from a cat. The solution? Don't be selfish.....find the cat another good home.

Reeses, the big orange boy that you see in this video, was turned in back in 2015 when his owner could no longer care for him. It looked as if the only time Reeses had ever seen a veterinarian was when he was young and went to get declawed. Reeses was overweight and severely neglected throughout his life. He now has severe arthritis, due largely in part to his declawing. He resides in our Kitty City where he enjoys soft beds, heated floors, and pain management for his arthritis, but he should never have had to wind up in this state. If you're thinking of declawing your cat, sponsor Reeses through our Share-A-Pet program and when you come to visit him, see what he thinks.

A Minnesota cat rescue (camp companion) posted this and itโ€™s so beautiful yet sad but true I had share...

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

Rescue Angels
By Author Unknown
Tail tucked between your legs,
Confusion in your eyes -
I know it's hard to understand
That someone heard your cries.

When loneliness is all you know
And pain is all you feel
And no one can be trusted,
And hunger's all too real...

That's the time the Lord sees you
And lets you know He's there
That's when He sends His messengers
The hearts that love and care.

Yes, rescuers are angels
You cannot see their wings,
They keep them neatly folded
As they do their caring things.

The medicine to make you well
Good food to make you strong,
And finally to help you learn
That hugs are never wrong.

The perfect place then must be found
The home where you can live
Secure and safe and happy
With joy to get and give.

When you reach your Forever Home,
Your place to feel whole,
The Angels smile, and off they go
To save another soul.

FCS alumni Shadow (formerly Bluebell) knows how to keep cozy on this frigid January day... sunny spot + heated sherpa bed = best spot in house. Hard to believe that this girl used to live outside! Thanks to FCS for rescuing her sheโ€™s now an indoor cat who never has to struggle to survive a cold winter outdoors again!

Please consider donating or volunteering with FCS to help us help more cats in need like Shadow!

The hidden feral cat house! Landlords, and nosey neighbors will never know that this garbage pail is really an insulated, warm, cozy safe haven for ferals at risk. Easy to make and inconspicuous. Sometimes we have to think outside the box! And of course this one never gets wheeled to the curb!
Together we save them!

With rescue comes heartache.

Yesterday late afternoon, while driving, I find a very sick little kitten stumbling helplessly down a hot suburban road. I immediately stopped the car and rushed to his aid. When i picked him up I could tell he was incredibly underweight and his eyes all gooey with green gunk, one eye he couldnโ€™t he even open because of it. I took him in and placed him in a spare kennel with a towel. I tried cleaning his face and syringe hydrating him. I contacted Jacquie, the owner of this wonderful rescue, and she met me to pick him up and rush him to an animal ER. After looking him over it was discovered this poor baby was much worse off than I thought. He had fly eggs on him (indicative of a very sick animal) and he was extremely anemic and would need a blood transfusion, a very costly procedure with no guarantee of survival. It was determined it was best for this poor soul to be humanely euthanized. As hard as it is and as much as it breaks my heart Im relieved heโ€™s no longer suffering. Had no one found him and cared enough to try to do SOMETHING, he would have suffered much longer. Because I found him on Riverview Ln Iโ€™ve named him โ€œRiverโ€ RIP lil River. Sorry I couldnโ€™t have found you sooner ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

Please donโ€™t pass by an animal in need. Itโ€™s hard, itโ€™s sad, itโ€™s challenging, but itโ€™s worth it.

For cats sake is entirely volunteer run, working full time jobs while juggling a rescue that has no โ€œclock outโ€ time. We rely and depend on donations from you, our supporters! Please consider making a donation today to help us help more of these desperate animals in need.
