Marie had tried to get help for Pinky for almost a week, but to no avail. She reached out to the Alliance just in time. Within a matter of hours, Pinky was trapped and brought to a local feral-friendly veterinarian.
First, the vet sedated Pinky so that the can could be removed and she could be examined. Due to the amount of time she spent in the can, she was severely dehydrated, and had sustained some injuries from the metal cutting her skin. The vet administered fluids, antibiotics, and treatment for her wounds. After some TLC, Pinky was ready to be returned to her colony.
“Thank you for helping Pinky…when no one else would! We are very grateful to the Mayor’s Alliance. We tried to get help for a week and then called you. She’s doing great today!” – Marie, BronxDon’t let community cats like Pinky suffer in silence.
