SCOOTER is one lucky kitty thanks to his new forever family and Cathy, his new human companion, who adopted him from a shelter hours before his scheduled euthanasia. You can’t tell from the photo, but Scooter has a paralyzed leg which causes him to scoot around on three legs instead of the old-fashion walking on four legs. Cathy said he doesn’t know he’s missing a leg and is an active, happy cat. Your donation dollars enabled SPGSFA to assist with neutering “Scooter” after his adoption.
Ginger was a beautiful mini-horse foal who had the misfortune to be born with an under-developed stomach. Her small body could process her mother’s milk, but could not process solid food. Her owner turned to the Good Samaritan Fund for veterinary assistance which was gladly provided. Sadly for all, Mother Nature took her from us. Ginger’s memory is beautiful and all who knew her loved her.
Callie had the misfortune of being struck by a car early in her life. She was found on the side of the road by a Good Samaritan and brought to the Park County Animal Hospital. Even as she lay on the roadside with a collapsed lung, broken ribs and femur she responded warmly to her rescuer. After surgery at the hospital she was fostered in the home of Jen and Jake until she recovered, and before she could be adopted by a new family. Jen and Jake fell in love with her and wanted her to be part of THEIR family. Thanks to Jen and Jake, the PCAH, and the South Park Good Samaritan Fund for Animals, Callie now lives a comfortable life in good health with a lifelong family.
A truly Good Samaritan… Steve Benson of Fairplay, found this cat on his doorstep one day, half starved and seemingly on death’s doorstep.
Steve rushed “Rambo” (his new name) to Park County Animal Hospital where medical treatment was begun. When this was unsuccessful, the decision was made to perform surgery on him because, as Dr. Madole put it, “There is just something about this cat.”
Surgery revealed an orange-sized piece of colon that had to be removed and the remaining ends sutured together. “Rambo” recovered quickly after surgery and is doing well today. “It’s amazing he’s alive,” commented Dr. Madole on this resilient cat.
The cost of his treatment was $1,200 of which $750 was paid by SPGSFA, $500 donated by Dr. Madole, and $100 donated by Steve Benson.
“Rambo” is happy in his newly adopted home.
