Jacob was on his way to an AC&C shelter when we stepped in and took him into our Picasso Veterinary Fund program. The sweet, six-month-old tuxedo cat had been found in a box someone left on top of an abandoned refrigerator lying by the side of a road in the Bronx. Surprisingly, he was in pretty good shape, except for a nasty case of ringworm. We arranged for Jacob to be treated at One Love Animal Hospital in Brooklyn, where he had to spend 45 days in a cage while being treated. But his ordeal is over, and now Jacob is enjoying life with his new adoptive family.
Pebbles was in bad shape when she was found by a volunteer from one of our all-cat Alliance Participating Organizations. She had been abandoned — tied to a light pole on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The nine-month-old Lab/Shepherd mix was emaciated, infested with parasites, and borderline hypothermic. We took Pebbles into our Picasso Veterinary Fund program and sent her to Murray Hill Pet Hospital, where she received the treatment and care she needed to restore her to good health. Pebbles is in the process of being adopted and will soon be settled in with her new family.
Sasha, Jacob, and Pebbles — three precious lives saved by our Picasso Veterinary Fund. But there are so many more homeless pets who need our help! Last year the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals saved more than 800 cats and dogs through our Picasso Veterinary Fund and other medical programs. And we can continue to save lives with your support.
