If you care for an elderly, injured or special needs pet, you've come to the right place!
Have home(s) for him to go to, need someone to adopt him (no fee) to get him out of Rowan County Animal Control (Salisbury, NC) Large white fluffy 10-yr-old declawed, neutered male cat, Snowball, taken there by owner after their niece had to move in and had severe allergic/asthmatic reaction and had to go to ER. Yes, we know cat people would not have done that but this woman apparently just didn't know what to do and hospital wouldn't release the niece until cat was gone from home and home thoroughly cleaned, and asthma type attacks can actually kill, so if it was that severe it was probably a dilemma on short notice as to what to do with the cat, but they are very upset at having had to do this and were the ones who put out the word to try to undo it. We are a rescue in Columbia, SC and have a contact in Charlotte who can pick up the cat from whomever springs him from the animal shelter right after work this afternoon, and we will meet her at state line and get him. We care for 100 cats, just 2 of us and 1 works full time and while we will drive all the way to Salisbury if necessary to get him ourselves, we would rather it be a relay so we don't have to take so much time out of our already very long day. Can anyone up in Salisbury area help? If so please e-mail email@example.com Thank you.
I just got back here. Any news on this?
We sent a lot of e-mails, FB page posts, etc. on Tues. a.m but had not had any luck finding anyone in NC to spring Snowball from Rowan County, so at 2pm we decided to drive up ourselves ((4 hour round trip) - we got there w/ 10 mins. to spare and on fumes in the gas tank! But we got him out and brought him back to Columbia, and met his new adopter that evening and he went to his new home. He ate, used the box, explored the house, made friends w/ one of the resident cats and even got up on new owner's bed and gave her a kiss. He was a very sweet cat so we hope that all is working out. We later found a message on FB - someone actually in Salisbury who could have got him out for us, but we were afraid to wait just in case they euthanized him - he'd been in there a week.
PS You can see pix of him on our FB page - "Carolina Cats"
Thanks, "Critters". We're glad it worked out and the original owner is relieved, too.
