Helping PAWS is the last chance to live for many of the animals that come to us. They come from overcrowded kill shelters, hoarding situations and even from private individuals who simply can't afford the care their pet needs. Recently, we partnered with Pilots 'n' Paws to bring in 12 cats and kittens from a Kentucky shelter, where they were scheduled to be euthanized. 

Every year, in addition to our other intakes, we can count on six to eight animals whose medical needs strain our resources to the breaking point. In 2017, such animals include the following:

  • Lady Bug, whose digestive issues landed her on the euthanasia list at another rescue shelter. Extensive (and expensive) testing showed that a past bout of pancreatitis caused the problem. To live a normal life, all she needs is quality food and a powdered pancreatic enzyme supplement to aid her digestion.
  • Mahalo was also scheduled for euthanasia. He suffered from fecal incontinence and a prolapsed rectum. While his condition couldn't be completely cured, treatment improved his symptoms and enabled him to find a loving home.
  • Tia came to HPPR to have her kittens, but unfortunately she brought along an unexpected guest: Feline Distemper. She and her brood made good use of our isolation room and, while round-the-clock care couldn't save two of the little ones, mom and four of her kittens survived and found good homes. 
  • Nigel came to us from a family who simply couldn't afford to treat his costly urinary tract obstruction. After treatment and a lengthy recovery, he found his purrrfect home.
  • Gabby and Destinee were about to be euthanized by another rescue shelter because they were diabetic. But HPPR found that treatment with a special pet insulin and a quality diet put their diabetes into remission and they should now be able to live normal, healthy lives. 
  • Paula, one of the Kentucky kitties, arrived with an ulcerated cornea and a bilateral malformation of her knees. Her vision has now been saved and only time will tell if she will need costly knee surgery as she matures. 

Cases like these have depleted our emergency fund and, unless we can restore it, we may need to turn away the next needy animal that comes to us hoping for their last chance to live. We can’t save them all, but those in our care deserve the very best treatment available.
