October 2023 Newsletter: HUGE Adoption Event, Nuts for Neutering, and More Lives Saved!

October Success Story: Pepper

Pepper was trapped and fixed by our partners at Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control. Her life was saved with a spay surgery because she had pyometra – a bacterial infection of the uterus. Left untreated, this condition is fatal.

After Pepper was spayed, she was given IV fluids and antibiotics to help clear up any infection. Pepper stayed at the shelter for a few days after surgery to monitor her recovery and eating/drinking. Once Pepper was medically cleared, her caretakers were extremely happy that she was safe and welcomed her back home.

We have a backlog of requests to help over 100 cats like Pepper.

We need your support to be able to provide them with lifesaving surgeries.
