What we've accomplished in 2019!

Animals we've helped first-hand:

★ Puddles. I saw this poor little kitty with a huge wound on PuppyKitty’s Instagram page, and I knew we had to help. We picked him up from the vet after his surgery and he was our foster for a few months. It was a long way to recovery, but Puddles took all the treatment heroically! I always felt a bond with him, and after a few months we decided that he should become a permanent member of our family ❤️ Puddles is still a bit scared; he’s hiding when we have quests, but he’s blossomed in a way I would have never imagined! Love you little guy!


★ Pigeon rescue. On a cold January night, I saw this little guy stuck in the corner. I went home, got a box, and took him in. I messaged Wild Bird Fund and they instructed me on how to handle him safely. Next morning, we took the baby to Wild Bird Fund so they can take care of him. It turned out that this pigeoun was poisoned and they couldn’t save him 😿


★ Mr Bean. He’s the kitten who showed up at a colony right by our house. It took me a few weeks to get him because he was not interested in food at all, instead, I trapped him with the help of our catnip toy! 😹 Such a funny little baby! PuppyKitty NYC took him to his neuter surgery and let him stay at their holding spay for a few days, and after that we’ve been fostering Mr. Bean for about 2 months. He's had no adoption inquiries! In the end, our neighbor who was in love with him from the very beginning decided to adopt him! So, we still live in the same building with Mr. Bean and I can visit him anytime!


★ Zippy. She is the toughest cat I’ve ever met! I’ve been trying to trap her for MONTHS, with all kinds of traps and all kinds of tricks! She’s an older girl and has a drooling problem, so we wanted to get her to the vet asap. One lucky day in December I met a girl who’s been feeding this colony as well, and we decided to try to catch Zippy together. And we did! We took her to the vet where they gave Zippy some antibiotics and took out a few teeth, and after that Zippy was picked up by her main caretaker. Now she lives indoors, safe and hopefully happy!
