FUNDRAZR CAT HOARDING campaign

FUNDRAZR CAT HOARDING campaignThe New Rochelle Humane Society, assisted by the Greenburgh Police Department and Greenburgh Animal Control, removed 62 cats from a home in White Plains, New York.  The house has been condemned and the property is in foreclosure. All 62 cats are now at the New Rochelle Humane Society, where we are working hard to assess their needs and provide much needed medical attention.  We need your support to in order to be able to care for them.  Please help us!

A small, dark, filthy room choked with garbage and infested with thousands of flies became a prison for 62 cats; for some it was a prison for many years. They were housed in dank, dark, cramped cages with barely room to lay down and without litter boxes. Most of the cages housed multiple adult cats, as many as four to a single cage. Several cats were caged as tiny kittens and have lived their entire lives in this environment. Pet carriers housed adult cats; the carriers were so small that the unfortunate prisoners were unable to turn around, stand or escape laying in their own feces and urine. At least five cats were kept in small cat traps, which are intended to catch a cat and deliver it to another location. One cat lived in a trap in this house for eight long years.

Please share this campaign, adopt if you can and most importantly, donate to their care if you are able.


Little Will, our tiny miracle

Little Will, our tiny miracle. Help us help him.

Saturday November 30th a tiny Yorkshire Terrier was found badly injured and near death on the side the road. His tiny body lay in an area few people walk, especially on a cold dark night. The fact that someone heard his tiny cry for help, was the first of many miracles to come. His finder wrapped his ice cold body in a towel and contacted the New Rochelle Police, who immediately contacted the New Rochelle Humane Society’s emergency on call staff. When we arrived at the Animal Special Center, this tiny dog was so close to death, barely breathing and so cold his temperature did not even register on the thermometer. Throughout the night the expert medical team of ASC worked on the little Yorkshire Terrier, we have come to know as “Little Will”. Little Will, because this tiny dog definitely had not given up the will to live and we were willing to get him the medical care he needed. Over the next several days Little Will endured several major surgeries to repair his crippled body. Little Will appeared to have been hit by a passing car, that resulted in multiple fractures to his pelvis, a diaphragmatic hernia, inguinal hernia and a bruised lung. Yes it is a true miracle this tiny Yorkie survived!

Even with the huge discounts the Veterinary Specialty Center have given us,  the emergency veterinary care, intensive care hospitalization and surgery costs are currently at $4000. This is where we need your help.

To save Little Will and others in dire  situations such as this, we need your donations now. Please donate to Little Will’s Fund to help make another Holiday Miracle come true.
