Sanctuary/fostering for handicapped

Post by PooMoggie » Tue Oct 20, 2009 2:36 pm

I am an experienced foster caregiver and rescue worker, offering to adopt or foster-and-then-find-homes-for handicapped. My specialty is handciapped kittens of all sorts and ages. I have extensive experience curing "incurables" and those with supposedly congenital problems, as well as those who have suffered trauma like gunshot or burns. I can either adopt someone or foster him/her until I find an appropriate permanent loving home for him/her. Transport to NY state must be provided. The only handicap I am not equipped to deal with is emotional/behavioral/social, so I am afraid I am seeking only affectionate, loving cats and dogs who would be wonderful responsive and companionate members of a new family. I can always find a home for someone of such a disposition. All diseases of any nature welcome - well, not the diseases. You know what I mean. Extensive bottle-feeding experience. Primarily experienced with cats, kittens, and dogs, but other species welcome. Please mail babybeaveroveralls [......at.....] msn.com if you think you know someone who would be a candidate for my sanctuary. Every effort is made to cure the malady, and miracles can occur! Thanks.

Hi Poo,

Have you seen the thread about "Legs". She really needs a new home as soon as possible. This link is the portion of the thread with her pictures, but take a look at her whole story.

Do you have room for her?

Thanks, Christine. She's in Florida? Who would provide transportation to Upstate NY?

If you really want her, there's an east coast network that makes run most weekends.

I really need to find a place for a stray cat that was hit by a car or fell off a roof a few days ago. He is paralyzed from the hips down. I do not have the time to attend to him. It looks like he is gaining some control of one leg. He can kinda lift it up/down. I have to express him for urine and it looks like I will have to help him with BMs, too.

He is an orange short haired tabby with bronze colored eyes, about 6 months old. Very affectionate and friendly. I can drive quite a distance to deliver him.

Please, somebody, take him. glyde_iv@ yahoo. co m

I might be able to take him. I am near Albany NY. can he be neutered first? I have several questions for you about this situation and about him, so I will email you now.

Okay, I responded from a gmail account. I can probably get him neutered. Just don't know if the surgery would effect expressing for urine.

Neutering shouldn't make much difference in expressing. It might a little if expressing is "kitten style," but normal expressing should be fine. He'll heal in a hurry anyway.
