Jack, Jill, and Rocky!

Jack, Jill, and Rocky!

Rockin Pets Foundation was notified of 3 siblings by a concerned bystander.  They lived, along with the rest of their colony, in an apartment parking lot.  They had to dodge cars all day and run back and forth on the hot summer asphalt - forgotten and neglected, along with the rest of the colony of cats, dumpster diving, and just trying to survive and get a meal.  These 3 were very sick with upper respiratory infections, eye infections, were dehydrated, covered in fleas, and were anemic.  Even though they were feral, we knew we couldn't leave them, they didn't stand a chance. ...

Why did you decide to rescue? There really wasn't another option for me - I knew I wanted a dog and I never considered another option.   Please tell us your story with rescuing. It took me a long time to find a rescue to work with.

Please tell us your story with rescuing. I followed Odd Cat Sanctuary on Facebook (you can find all their info there), and saw her post, and applied that night. I've actually coached a Special Olympics team nearly every Saturday since I was 12, so I’ve got a huge love and respect for people with disabilities. I saw on the Odd Cat Sanctuary’s FB page that...

Jasmine's Story

Jasmine's Story

Meet sweet Jasmine aka Jazzy. She was initially brought to a free neighborhood dog day clinic for vaccines and a skin condition from local breeder. Her skin condition was treated at that time. Her owner reached out to @4RFriends in late May reporting that her condition had worsened. Jasmine was surrendered to 4RF and that afternoon was taken for emergency x-rays. These x-rays revealed a small fracture in her skull. Her entire head was swollen and she was also limping badly from a wound in between her toes. She was taken to a veterinary specialty center where an internal medicine...
