Help Ariel

Start Fundraising »
What's this?

Ariel was found hiding piled up with all the other cats in her room, terrified of all humans.

She was our very first intake of 56 cats, and as soon as we began to handle her, she began to purr, despite her previous hesitation, and quickly became the greeter and ambassador for everyone else in her room.

Ariel arrived very sick: she had giardia (a nasty intestinal parasite that causes diarrhea and is highly contagious to other animals, including humans), severe dental disease, and an upper respiratory infection that caused not only severe congestion but also painful, swollen eyes with significant discharge.

She needs your help to get the surgery and extensive medical care she requires to heal. Ariel wants nothing more than to be loved and you can be the person who shows her the love she's long been denied.

ID#: 441970

*Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Ariel until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.
