When an e-mail alert was sent out concerning a cat in Orange that needed rescue, the Society immediately went into action. Neighborhood kids had stabbed a black/white cat in the eye. An animal lover who had been feeding the cat caught her and the Society’s Animal Control Officer picked her up. In the meantime, Orange ACO Rudy Giordano was notified, and within a short time, he picked up another cat that was suffering a puncture hole close to the eye. Both of these cats are part of a large population of unaltered cats that are located across from a school. These two victims are lucky … but this unmanaged colony is just trying to survive and has been the target of unknown youths. Both of the cats need some time and patience to become accustomed to their new surroundings.
UPDATE: On March 3rd, Dr. Lisa Bongiovanni put the black cat under anesthesia to alter it. It was discovered that a tumor was growing in the sinus cavity area & there was some heavy bleeding. She was also FIP positive. It was determined to euthanize her. From the time the cat was trapped, it was obvious that she had not been handled by humans or that the only ones who came near, attempted to hurt her. She is now at peace and in a better place than she had known before.

April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month …. and it is still February as we see the victims of what has been done to innocent animals. It is important for the public to know how brutally dogs and cats are treated. Most of the ResQ Fund dollars are used in our efforts to care for and rehabilitate victims of animal abuse and neglect. Please support our ResQ Fund, so we can help victims of cruelty and torture like these two cats. Thank you.
