Safe and Sound

While there are currently no long term placements available at SCAPA for abandoned cats it doesn't stop the volunteers and caring individuals from finding a warm and safe place for these, otherwise hopeless, animals.

By reaching out, not only to the Bay St.George area, but to the entire province and occasionally beyond, SCAPA is able to continue helping animals in need.

Some recent success stories:

Allie, the kitten rescued yesterday and featured in our previous post, is now safe in a foster home with Julia in the Corner Brook area.

This is Shawna, who was recently abandoned outside in this cold weather. She was originally thought to be pregnant, but after her vet check up we were relieved to find out that she wasn't. She tested negative for Fiv/Felv, has been spayed and vaccinated. Shawna is now warm and safe in foster care with Sonya in the Corner Brook area.

Remember Cloud? Here she is in her foster home. She has recently been tested, spayed and vaccinated and returned to her foster mom, Hollee.

Thanks to Sonya & Julia for taking these animals into your home and keeping them safe. And a special thanks to Hollee and her boyfriend, who met Gwen half way to Corner Brook to transfer these beautiful girls to their foster homes!

Now a tale of a forever home. Meet Smokey, a 5 year old indoor, male, neutered cat who was recently tossed outside without a second thought because a child had come into the picture. Smokey lived in the warmth for 5 years until one winter's day he was tossed outside and never permitted back indoors. It wasn't long after we caught wind of Smokey's story and people began to share it through the online community of facebook, that Viola stepped forward and gave this gorgeous little guy a forever home. Smokey is now living well with Viola and her family, passing his time watching the fish bowl, following his new family around and taking turns sleeping with the 4 children despite having his own bed. Thank you for opening your heart and your home Viola!

Thank you to everyone who made the lives of these 4 cats better with your kindness. What could have been 4 very sad endings have become 4 hopeful beginnings.

When you think on the successful endings and new beginnings created because of SCAPA, I urge you to remember that this is only possible because of individuals, like yourself, willing to give something back and care about the life of another.
