Cat sanctuary could use help with veterinarian bill

Dawn’s Cat Sanctuary, Fort Ashby, W.Va., recently rescued 11 cats and one kitten from a home in Keyser, W.Va.

The elderly homeowner died in February, leaving the cats in de-plorable conditions. The cats were slated to be euthanized at the Mineral County pound, when I received a call concerning this situation. None of the six males were neutered and three of the six females were not spayed. All had sore, infected eyes and nine needed extensive dental surgery. (Two cats and one kitten were found dead at the residence.)

Mountainview Veterinary Services in Keyser gave a substantial discount for the services rendered, but the bill was still $3,700. The sanctuary currently houses 133 other cats in addition to the new rescues, so it is having a financial shortage.

If you would like to donate to the care of these precious cats, it is much needed and would be greatly appreciated! Contributions may be sent to: Dawn’s Cat Sanctuary, P.O. Box 1562, Fort Ashby, WV 26719.
