A Purrfect New Home

Coconut Telegraph

Though Cat Depot’s available spaces are filling up, they don’t hesitate in accepting new cats on a regular basis and sticking to their mission of saving lives, finding loving homes, and providing the necessary resources and education to improve the destiny of homeless cats. This week, Cat Depot welcomed 34 new cats- 20 of which arrived from a local rescue, and the rest of which were rescued by The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) all the way from the Lawrence County Animal Shelter in Alabama. Unfortunately, many of the animals from Alabama were emaciated and appeared to be suffering from medical issues such as parvo, distemper and untreated wounds. Some of the animals were being housed in small wire crates and others in crowded enclosures where animals fought for resources and space. Thankfully, Cat Depot stood up and graciously accepted some of these innocent creatures. “We are grateful that we can change the destiny of these deserving animals. Many of the cats from Alabama will need immediate medical care. We are asking volunteers to help feed and clean in the morning and early evening,” said Shelley Thayer, executive director, Cat Depot. “Our hope is that the community will step up with immediate support. Donations are greatly needed to provide emergency medical care and food.”

Give Gratitude, Grateful Patient Program

If you have been a patient at Sarasota Memorial, perhaps you can look back to when the care you received exceeded your expectations. Maybe it was kind words from a doctor or nurse, the patience of a technologist who took the time to explain a procedure, or a volunteer, housekeeper or food service
