2011 Gina shows how much it takes a village to save a life. She was posted to a group on Facebook that shares daily all the cats sitting on death row in the NYC animal control facilities that will be euthanized the next day.  Someone saw her and immediately posted it to us.  We posted it to our Facebook page asking for someone to step up and give her a home. No one was willing to give her a home so we agreed to take her.  We told them someone in NYC would have to step up to the plate, go get her and get her to us.  An amazing lady named Giovanna did just that. She called us to make sure we would take her and headed to the pound to get her.  A Wonderful man named Steven had posted that if someone got her to Washington DC, he would drive her the rest of the way.  Giovanna went to the pound and got her, kept her over night, rented a car, drove from NYC to DC handing her off to Steven. Steven drove her the last 5 hours to us.   She owes her life to them! This little lady is 9 years old and in pretty rough shape. She had never been spayed! The people who dumped her stated on the intake form that they had only had her for 1 year. Even though she almost died, dumping her at the pound ultimately was the best thing that ever happened to her. We took her to the vet, got her spayed.  She had 2 huge uterine cysts removed.  Removed both of her eyes.  (She had no sight in them,  one had completely collapsed and one was hard as a rock from glaucoma and had to be causing her considerable pain!)  She got a much needed dental done.  She had several rotted teeth, one with roots showing.  The poor little lady had to be in so much pain! She is now home,  on good pain meds, a couple of antibiotics and recovering nicely.  She is very very sweet considering everything that has happened to her.  I know she is grateful to be safe.
