Matched Fundraiser Results!

Thank you to all of our donors! We raised $8571.00 for our sanctuary and received the full $5000 match from our anonymous sponsors, to whom we are so grateful!

We'd like to give a special shout out to our private memorial donor for their unbelievable $5000 donation, which resulted in us reaching our match goal by 9:00 a.m. Thursday morning! WOW!


Grace Update

While finishing up the parasite treatment for Grace & Kelly, Grace began laying intermittent soft eggs and then... she began passing a cottage-cheese like substance, which is indicative of Metritis.

Metritis refers to the inflammation of the lower reproductive tract (the uterine portion of the oviduct). It can be brought on by a systemic (bacterial) infection or by damage caused by egg binding or peritonitis. Metritis can effect contractions during egg-laying as well as having a negative impact on actual shell formation. 

In response, we have started Grace on antibiotics and she'll be going in for a Deslorelin implant this Thursday to stop her egg-laying cycle. She will likely need 3-4 of these implants a year and we want to thank every one of our donors for making all of her vet care possible.

For the sake of perserving her longterm health, Grace should not be mated by males. Because the family preparing to adopt her (and Kelly) has 2 boys we mutually decided that their home would not be ideal for Grace. We want to thank the family for their kindness, patience and understanding through the entirety of her care. When the come to adopt Smokey, we will need to make the difficult decision on what is best for Kelly--and whether or not she should join them as planned, or if she should stay here with Grace. This decision will be made based on what is best physically and emotionally for each of the girls.

If we can find a home interested in adopting Grace & Kelly together, a home willing to meet Grace's quarterly vet implant needs, then Kelly can stay here with us, so they can remain together; otherwise, we may opt to seperate the girls until a new home is found for Grace.

Anyone interested in learning more about the responsibility involved in caring for and adopting Grace (and hopefully Kelly!) should email Kim because it probably isn't nearly as severe as you're thinking and you might be able to provide a wonderful home for these ladies enabling them to stay together!
