Introducing - the Littles

Two new cats are in the care of Joa's Arc - Tiny & Minnie. As you can see in this photo, they are little cats with little names.

How little? Both of these girls are just about 4 lbs ... full grown, adult cats and they are only 4 lbs! No adult cat should be so little - however, these aren't just any adult cats. They are two of the first cats removed from a local South Philly hoarder whose home was filled with trash, filth, fleas and cats.

When Joa's Arc's founder, Joyce, saw reports of this home and the cats, she was reaching out to PSPCA contacts as quickly as possible to see how she could help. She wrote "Just saw the story of the hoarding situation in South Philly. Don't know what your process is with this but I am willing to take two from you. I felt so terrible, their poor faces were covered with fleas. Sick situation.". Obviously, these cats absolutely need some TLC and special care. That's how she found out and got these two kitties. Meet Tiny & Minnie...



Here are some news articles on the house and cats:

- PSPCA Rescues Dozens of Cats From a S. Philly Home

Thank you to Joyce for openning your home to these cats. Thank you, Jim and Karen Diamore of Lipkins Pharmacy, for once again helping out and donating some much needed vitamins & dietary supplements to help the Littles recover! Thank you to the PSPCA staff for going into those awful conditions to save these cats and clearing them so quickly for rescues to help.

Although medically cleared, Minnie & Tiny still have a long road to recovery. They need some weight put on, some trust restored and some love to remind them that not all people are like that. We're just glad they got out and survived!

Donations to continue our work and help animals like, Minnie & Tiny can be sent to:

Gabe's Been Cleared For Adoption!!

How about some good news?!

Gabe has been cleared for adoption! Yes, after months of surgery, funny colored casts, rest and recovery, Gabe is finally all ready for a home of his own!

A great big thank you to Winslow Animal Hospital's staff, including the very awesome, very skilled Dr. Coudrai who did Gabe's surgery and monitored his recovery. The people at this vet office are just exceptionally sweet, caring and kind. This is the same office that has done two Spring/Easter fund raisers for us and helped Cup of Joe too!

Thank you to Jen S and Hailey for their awesome love, energy and time fostering Gabe. Thank you to Joyce for kindly offering to transport Gabe occasionally to the vet's for his check ups too! Last, but not least, let's thank Gabe for being such a good patient. :)

Now, we anxiously wait for that special family to complete Gabe's long journey and wants to call this hound boy their very own... Will it be you? Tweet This
