This is a cry for help!

Animalkind is reaching out to you because we do not know anymore where else to turn.

We have two emergencies at this moment, where the life¹s of two sentient creatures depend on the raising of $2,500 in only two weeks. (as of 4/20)

Here are their stories:

1.) Himmi:

Found in a box with a sign² Please help², he was only 3 month young when found (in November 03). Animalkind took in the little guy who had/has a neurological problem. Himmi has a balance problem, his walk is wobbly and sometimes when he plays he looses a bit track of his directions. Veterinarian examination determined back in 11/03 that no prognoses (and therefore treatment) can be made until he is older.

Himmi is now 8 month young, a sweet and loving kitty that now desperately needs medical attention, since his balance is off more often and now he developed slight seizures. The only way to determine which treatment can save his life is an MRI that will cost

Animalkind $ 1000 (without treatment) at the Shaker Veterinarian Hospital in Latham, the only place in our area that has the means to help Himmi.

2. Ruth

Ruth is feral and lived in Hudson for the last 5 years as an alley cat . She was spayed many years ago and belonged to one of our feeding sites. Last weekend she was hit by a car on Allan Street. Ruth was found by Ms. Moser who called Animalkind at once so we could take ³Ruth² (the cat, named after her savior) to the vet immediately. Her pelvis is broken and she needs orthopedic surgery that will cost us approx. $ 1200 (surgery only), in addition she has broken toes and several wounds on her body. We have to get her into surgery ASAP, since she can not move and needs the medical attention- a broken pelvis is a painful situation and Ruth turned out to be a real trooper. The vet needs the payment when proceedure is done, so we are under time pressure. Unfortunately feral cats normally mean nothing in our society but Animalkind is proud of it¹s history to help every animal in need so far. Little Ruth was on her own all her life, she feels pain, hunger , but she feels love as well. Our hearts are aching, since our funds are diminished at this point (fundraiser in June!) and you are our last hope.

We really for the first time reached the end of our rope and plead to you to help this two souls that have nobody that cares about them.

We beg you in the name of those two living creatures: Please send a donation to help. This is a true time of crisis for Animalkind and those two kitties.

If we are unable to determine treatment for Himmi, his life won¹t have any quality anymore and there is no future for him.

This is a true emergency for us and you are our last hope at this time

Please send any donation (labeled: crisis) to:
