Bringing people together to save one needy kitty!
1/6/07 It sometimes takes a village to save a life, and Max is living proof of that.
He was dumped at the pound in Irving, Texas by his owner who stated that he sometimes missed the litter box, and they just didn't want to have to deal with him anymore.
Irving, Texas animal control is a very small, High Kill facility with a wonderful group of volunteers who go in every day and post to the Internet the new animals that need saving. Each animal is only given 72 hours and is then euthanized, so there is not a lot of time.
A volunteer saw Max and posted information about him on the Internet. Thanks to mondern technology, within minutes the news about Max was in thousands of rescue groups e-mailboxes.
Janice, a wonderful lady with a rescue in Texas, contacted them and took Max out. I contacted the pound and was told that a local rescue had inquired about him. I told them that we would accept him if no one else got him and to please give my number to whomever took Max in case they could not place him in a home.
Within a few days of rescuing him, Janice realized how unadoptable Max really is. He has neurological and bathroom issues along with being blind. Janice contacted me and asked to send him to us. She got him all vetted out and with the help of another volunteer, Kelly, (who just happen to work for an airline), she flew him to us.
Many people joined forces and worked together to save this wonderful fellow.
Max is very friendly to humans, but he has serious neurological issues and does have litter box problems. But even with all of that, we are happy to welcome him to our place.

It Takes a Village!
The Groups I'm In:
!!!!!!!Rescued Pets!!!!!!!!!, Friends of the Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, We're One-derful!, ~~~*♥Dog Park USA♥*~~~
Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary was started to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they are blind.
We are a registered non profit with the state of North Carolina. There are no paid employees, only volunteers, so all contributions go directly to the kitties.
Rescue is about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about. We are but humble vessels to help these magnificent creatures find their forever homes. The responsibility is big but the returns on our emotional investment are greater. You cannot place a value on the look of contentment that comes when an animal is clean, exercised, warm, fed and safe for the first time in its life.
