A woman was driving home in the pouring rain, when she noticed something on the side of the road. A tiny ball of fur that was almost run over. She slowed down to get a better look and realized it was a lifeless kitten.
She was worried the kitten was dead. When she approached the kitten’s mouth was open, and she looked like she was about to take her last breath. Barely escaping death, the kitten was rescued and brought to emergency vet after the woman contacted Lady Luck Animal Rescue for help.
After examining the tiny kitten, the vet found she was hypothermic and anemic along with intestinal parasites. Rayne, as she was later named by the rescue, received medical treatment and made a full recovery. She is loving life in her foster home as she plays with other kittens. The once lifeless kitten is now playful and full of life.
It is National Feed A Rescue Pet Week. Last year we beat our goal of feeding 3 million rescue pets. This year our goal is to provide 5 million meals to rescue pets, but we need your help!
Thanks to money saved from donated food from GreaterGood.org’s Rescue Bank program, Lady Luck Animal Rescue can shift funds to provide medical care to injured and sick animals like Rayne. “Rescue Bank has allowed us to free up money in more severe medical cases since we don’t have to spend as much on high-quality food. This saves the rescue a lot of funding, and we can save more animals.”
Rescue Bank has donated over 275 million meals to animals in need. It is the world’s largest pet food distribution network. The goal is to donate pet food to shelters, rescues and sanctuaries to help feed the animals until they find forever homes. Pet food is the number one expense for rescues, usually taking their whole budget. This leaves little or nothing for vet care and treatment. Rescue Bank steps up to help by sending donated food to rescues in need. The money a rescue or shelter saves on buying food can then be used for vet care, vaccinations, adoptions and much more.
