SV group received a call at 8am about a cat recently found by the Volunteers. The young male cat was found a few months ago in terrible condition – emaciated with matted dirty coat, infested with fleas. The cat stayed at the foster home where he was treated for fleas, gained weight and became a gorgeous cat with white and grey long hair coat.
He was named Kesha by his foster parents and he knew his name. As all foster animals, Kesha received a lot of love and support by the SV group and the foster. The Volunteers made a post on social media website about him and …it worked!
The person calling about Kesha turned out to be his owner. He said that Kesha (Gosha as they named him) was lost exactly around the area where he was found but 2 years ago! When fosters met with the potential owners they were questioned about the age of the cat because he seemed too young to be lost 2 years ago. The owner said that when Gosha was very little one of his claws on the hind leg had to be removed because it got infected. The foster parents were surprised to find out that Kesha (Gosha) did not have the claw!
The foster parents were happy that Gosha found their original owners and went home with entire family.
We are very excited about this reunion and hope that we can see more of such happy endings!
This morning Lisa, one of the volunteers of SV group, found a box with a month old kitten inside. The writing on the box says: “Take it, needs good hands”:
Nobody knows who abandoned this kitten. It was raining all day and the poor little thing got soaking wet and cold. The volunteer took her home and made a post looking for a foster care or a home.
A few hours later the kitten was chilling on a couch in her new home after a meal and playtime.
This is one of the happy tails that we love to see all the time. Thanks to good hearted people like the volunteer Lisa one more life was saved today. BIG thank you to all Volunteers and people who rescue animals!
Please be kind to all animals!

882 animals found their forever homes, you can see pictures of all adopted animals here.
179 animals were spayed and neutered, please see pictures here.
For 1.5 years of the existence of SV group the volunteers had organized 240 adoption events, see pictures of all adoption events here.
Sterlitamak Volunteers is a group of regular people – volunteers from Sterlitamak, Russia. They joined their efforts to help street animals to bring them back to help and then find their forever homes.
All the help that this group receives is coming from regular people from donations (of money, food, medication, foster care, transportation and so on). The leaders of the Volunteers are Tamara Mazitova, Svetlana Pankova, Nadezhda Bezrukova and Yuliya Dobrogorskaya. Most of the Volunteers are school kids who rescue, feed, foster animals in their free time from school.
All adoption events are held all year around outdoors in any type of weather. All adoptable animals were previously homeless and most of them had health issues. At the time of adoption all animals are healthy. The adoptions are free of charge with future assistance in spaying and neutering. Prior to adoption events most of the animals are being fostered by the volunteers. Some fosters have over 15 animals at a time in different health conditions.
The countless efforts of Volunteers are paying off when they see the pictures of their adopted animals in their forever homes. Unfortunately, we cannot help all of them, sometimes the help comes too late. If you would like to help us, please make a donation via our paypal account. All donations are going to the animals of SV group.
As we prepare for the New Year of 2015 we would like to thank everyone who likes and follows our blog and share a few happy stories.
On a cold night a woman was passing by a dumpster when she heard meowing sounds. She looked into the dumpster and found a plastic bag with 2 tiny kittens. They were very little.
These kittens were taken by SV volunteers to foster. They were not even a month old and had to be fed from a syringe. Due to the unhappy start of their lives on the street the kittens got sick with different infections (fungal infection, diarrhea, herpes virus). After a long recovery and tedious work of the foster parents, the kittens became better.
The volunteers tried to find forever homes for both kittens but they were always passed on.
The foster family decided to adopt the pair after a few failed attempts to find a home for the kittens. Now they are healthy and happy. A boy and a girl grew into two big gorgeous cats!
Just look at them:
SV group is happy for them and want to thank you all for sharing their story!
