Spinning kitten

A few days ago SV group received online post about little snow white kitten with blue eyes living on the street. The worried Samaritan wanted to make sure the kitten was safe before temperatures outside dropped (and they did, now it is snowing, yes, in October!)

One of the Volunteers went to  the meet with the lady who caught this kitten and her orange tabby brother.  Both were taken into their foster home followed by a vet check up.  As usual they had flee infestation, bloated bellies and ear infection.

The same day foster mom started noticing that snow white kitten was making circles as if her head was dizzy and she was spinning in one spot instead of walking (video).

The vet prescribed treatment which will be 4 shots a day for 40 days!  Snow white (let’s call her that name) is crying and not liking the treatment. She had stomach issues after the first set of shots and did not eat anything, but 2 days later she is doing mush better and her movement has improved. She is not spinning that much and walks almost normally.  See the video.

Thank you!

Results July 2015

SV group is doing a remarkable work saving homeless animals in the hometown Sterlitamak, Russia.

Only in July 2015 the Volunteers rescued 95 animals.

They found homes for 69 animals.

3 cats and 3 dogs were spayed and neutered.

Received donations: $504.10  (= 32011 rubles)

Spendings: $460.59 (=29248 rubles)

Owed for previous month: $32.28 (=2050 rubles)

Balance for July 2015: $11.20 (= 711 rubles)

__________________________________________________________________________The balance of $11.20 is budgeted for spaying surgery of a mom cat found recently, but the procedure was delayed because all fosters are filled with animals and there is no spot for the after the surgery recovery (10 days).

As a result of July 2015, SV group has a balance of zero and 29 animals in their foster care.

The Volunteers are people with big hearts and endless energy. They accept any help they can get: old clothes, food for the animals, transportation for their injured and usually critical animals and just kind words of encouragement.

This work goes unnoticed by many citizens on Sterlitamak and many think that the Volunteers must take in every single homeless animal in town. At adoption events organized a few times a week by the Volunteers, they get swarmed by people who bring boxes of newborn kittens and puppies! These people get aggressive if the Volunteers refuse to take the animals. And these Volunteers are usually teenagers who spend their free time helping to fix the mistakes of negligent and irresponsible adults.

SV group wants to proceed with TNR campaign (Trap-Neuter-Return) but unfortunately they do not have the money or the place to keep the cats and dogs after the surgery for 10 days before the stitches should come out and the animals can be released.

Please make a small donation towards saving lives of animals. Any amount will go a long way.

Rescue Operation of 3 kittens

On July 23 Sterlitamak Volunteers were informed about a litter of 3 kittens and their cat mom living in the basement of a dentist clinic. The clinic has requested to seal all entrances into the basement and if the kittens and their mom were not rescued, they could be trapped inside the basement and die.

3 Volunteers went to rescue the cat family that day.  Upon arrival they witnessed 3 happy kittens playing in the sun right outside the basement.

The kittens and their cat mom were not happy to be chased after and bothered. 3 hour later the Volunteers got 2 kittens out of 3. Their mother cat escaped from the basement.

2 rescues are ready for a bath

The kittens were infested with fleas. The water they were bathed in turned red. They received flea medicine and medicated bath.

Boys are very stressed and hissy

Their first night at the foster home was stressful. But they are getting all the medications, food and care they need.

The third kitten managed to escape.  The kitten was caught the next day and it was a whole new adventure.

The 3rd kitten with cat mom

 

The kitten was outside running in the sun next to a shallow pipe that led into the basement. The Volunteers tried to cover one end of the pipe to trap the kitten and get it ou. But it was easier said than done:

This rescue operation finally ended when they got the kitten inside the basement the next day.  It turned out to be a girl and she was not happy, like her brothers, to be bathed and treated for fleas and worms.

These kittens are now being cared for at the homes of the Volunteers. After they are socialized and adapted to the human interaction all 3 kittens will be put up for adoption.

This rescue operation is one of many that SV group does every day.  Please help us by donating a small amount, that will go a long way in Russia. Only for the month of July the SV group took into their homes over 60 animals, provided food and medical attention. The group does not have a designated shelter space or the means to rent out a place for animals and all Volunteers take the sick, abandoned, abused and homeless animals into their homes. After the animals are healthy and ready for adoption the Volunteers organize adoption events.

We need your help.

SV group.

Rescued puppies

SV group received a call from their vet who informed them about puppies living next to a river trash pile. The river there is deep and moves fast. The puppies were crying and hiding in nettle bushes.

The river bank where puppies were hiding is too steep and slippery, and thick nettle bushes made it hard to see the puppies.

A few hours later and some logistics one of the Volunteers Svetlana Pankova was able to catch 3 puppies:

The puppies are from different litters and of different age but they all were infested with fleas:

The water turned red when bathing the puppies.

3 puppies now, bathed, fed and parasite free:

The tan puppy was adopted a few days after the rescue thanks to the social media post!

Thanks to rescue efforts and love for animals by Sterlitamak Volunteers 3 more lives were saved!

 

Happy Tails: 2 years later cat reunites with owners

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.

Before:

After:

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!
