   I thought I would share with you a recent event from the animal shelter.  I know you have been wanting more information about what we all do and I think this is a perfect example, and it has a happy ending so it’s a great story to share. 

 

     A kitten was brought to the shelter on Saturday night with an eye injury.  Another volunteer contacted me to make me aware so I could take a look and make a determination on what action we needed to take.  When I went into the shelter, Officer Dusatko was there and had just given the kitten a bath.  She also told me that she found some scratch grass in the kitten’s eye and was able to pull it out.  Mary Meier and I contacted PAWS and were approved to have the kitten taken to the clinic.  Mary is the one who took her.  She was treated for an upper respiratory infection, dewormed, given an antibiotic and an eye cream, and has a follow up appointment on Thursday.  When I came in this evening to take care of the animals, I gave the kitten her eye drops and medication, and she was already acting much perkier and was even playful. Not long after, Officer Dusatko showed up to take the kitten home.  She has named her Maze, and is just fostering for now, but there is a good chance she will end up keeping her.  


    I think this is a good example of how volunteers and PAWS work together to get the animals the help they need.  I shared a copy of the bill below.  This is one bill, for one kitten.  All paid for by the generous donations from people in our community, who trust PAWS to do what is right for the animals.  I also find it heartwarming the effect she had on Officer Dusatko, who is one of the officers who always takes time to go in and help out and spend time with the animals.  This kitten has a puncture wound in her eye because of the scratch grass, and may end up having to have her eye removed in the future.  But because of the swift action of PAWS and the volunteers, and the generous heart of Officer Dusatko, her future is already looking much brighter.

Tink came to us after her human was jailed, and could no longer care for her. The wonderful organization, PAWS paid for her vaccinations and health check. Today (June 28th) a family that could care for Tink, made her an official member of their family.
