Feral Paws Rescue: 4 Cats & 2 Dogs Find Rescue

by Paula Hunsaker

Our rescue over the years has seen and been through so much that is heartbreaking and joyful at times. But there are times when you have to stop and question the human race. I have learned over time that there is a huge difference between the mind of the public and the work of rescue. I have found over time that there are some very heartless humans. We get so attached to our rescue pets and some even become forever pets with the rescue.

Feral Paws Rescue: Pepper

by Lupe Gore

This month we’re featuring a beautiful young lady cat pulled from the CCSPCA (Fresno) by Feral Paws Rescue.
I will introduce you to Pepper. She is four years old, with a beautiful black and brown swirl tabby coat and little white mittens on her feet. She was an owner surrender to the shelter after being with her previous humans since she was five weeks old, apparently after being advertised as a free kitten on a web site.

Feral Paws Rescue: Shrimp

by Paula Hunsaker

Shrimp is a very special kitty that has touched so many lives (human). Shrimp is a beautiful orange tabby boy now four years old. Shrimp has been CCSPCA shelter office cat since he was just a kitten and was dumped at the shelter. Staff fell very much in love with Shrimp at the time he came into the shelter. The shelter's past office shelter cat on the adoption side of the shelter had passed away about three months before Shrimp came into the shelter.

Feral Paws Rescue: In the World of Rescue

by Paula Hunsaker

Each non-profit rescue has there own views on who their rescue will be saving. Saving lives from kill shelters isn't an easy decision in the world of rescue and has many heartbreaks and nights of seeing the faces of the ones we couldn't save. Some we have to leave behind knowing those we can't save will most likely be euthanized in just hours after leaving a kill shelter. Don't think the faces left behind don't haunt a rescuer every day; seeing them reaching out to us as we walk by the kennels, as if begging to have there life saved. Rescue work isn't for everyone!

Feral Paws Fosters—Arthur O’Brien Jr.

by Paula Hunsaker

Fosters are so important to rescue groups. They open there homes up to moms and kittens, cats, and kittens in need for special care. When a rescue group is so blessed with a foster that is amazing, its can be a life saver to a rescue group. Rescue work isn’t a forever one. It’s not cake and ice cream. It can be so ugly at times too often then we in rescue want to see. But we must remain strong and fight for the life that is in danger. Our rescue group has been so blessed with an amazing foster for one of our moms and kittens that are doing amazing well and are in the best care every. Thanks to our foster Arthur O'Brien Jr.!

Feral Paws: Wednesday Beautiful Black Kitty

by Paula Hunsaker

Wednesday was rescued from CCSPCA High Kill Shelter as a one-month-old kitten with a sibling. They both went into foster care with the vet tech at Care Vet Hospital in Fresno. It was going very well while in foster care. When they became four months old, I got a phone call from the vet tech that was fostering them. She told me that she wanted to keep one of the siblings. A foster failure! That happens so much when kittens are in foster care and the foster parent becomes so attached to the foster babies in their care.

Feral Paws: Our Little Zubbe

by Paula Hunsaker

Our little Zubbe was rescued from CCSPCA, a high-kill shelter. When we pulled Zubbe from the shelter she was dragging her back legs, plus she was very sick with a URI (urinary tract infection). Her poor body was so cold and had become very dehydrated. I honestly was losing hope in considering pulling Zubbe due to her many health issues. Well, I did, and after many visits to our rescue vet and the assurances giving me hope for Zubbe’s well being, I brought her to the rescue.

Feral Paws: Sir (Orange) and King (Black)

by Paula Hunsaker

Our rescue, receives so many emails daily asking for help in receiving cats and kittens. Our board has a policy of taking in only animals from high-kill shelters, because the cats and kittens in high-kill shelters have such a short period of time before being euthanized. Our rescue currently has pull rights at 17 shelters in California. As the CEO/Founder of this rescue, I can step up to help non-shelter cats and kittens depending on their stories. I honestly try not to override that policy because so many cats and kittens need help in kill shelters.
