What We Do Every Day
Pets left behind to starve after their "guardian" moves away
We were called to a situation where a dog and over 25 cats (may still be more) have been left behind when their so-called guardian(s) moved.
That was over 2 months ago.
For the last two months compassionate neighbors were feeding the animals, trying to get help. Finally they found Animalkind.
Upon arriving at the abandoned house, we discovered 2 dead cats (so far) and found 3 emaciated, sick cats, which we took in and are now doing now much better.
We also just trapped 4 more and are working on it daily.
Most cats have upper respiratory infections and need medical care.
We hope the dog evaluation will come back OK for the dog so we can foster him until he recovers.
As of now, this poor soul (that spent all of his life on a chain) is undernourished and has an eye-infection as well as coughing spells.

Update - May 10, 2007: Animalkind took the dog, who is now cared for!
Update - May 3, 2007: Animalkind has currently found up to 40 abandoned cats left behind from this one case, and we're still working on rescuing more and removing them far away from this cruelty. After nursing them all back to health with TLC and medical care, they are ready for second chance in a truly loving, forever home. They are listed on our Adoptable Animals page.
Update 26 May 2007:
Another unfortunate kitty -too late for us to help.
Wendy-saved and at our adoption center!!!
Waiting to be rescued. We are at the site every other day and trying the best to accommodate
the situation as fast as we can. We have to trap many of the cats and our capacity is limited. All kitties are cared for this time!
Oscar-rescued and waiting for his new home (barn) at our adoption center. Oscar is very shy and needs a farm/ barn situation.
Update: Tea-bone- the poor boy had a broken pelvis and was dragging himself around-he was rescued and medically attended and is now in his new home already!
Update: Monti was rescued, unfortunately he was so sick that he went to the angels-in spite all efforts, we were not able to save him, he had broken bones, and inner bleeding and and the merciful decision was made to help him and end his suffering.
He will always be in our mind as all the other suffering creatures are-inspiring us to continue our important work.
