SNAP CATS RESCUES SPECIAL NEEDS KITTEN FROM HIGH-KILL SHELTER
Through a network of rescues (SNAP Cats, Kitten Rescue LA, and Ziggy and Friends Cat Rescue), volunteers, pilots and animal welfare advocates, SNAP Cats rescued a kitten with severely deformed rear legs along with her sister from the high-kill Downey Animal Shelter (CA). The kittens, now named Leia (deformed legs) and Lucy (non-special needs), arrived in Santa Rosa on June 21 via Pilots N Paws. It took three animal rescues, four volunteers, a foster care giver, and two flights to get them here, but we did it!
Below is their first hour at SNAP Cats.
This rescue would not have happened without: Renee Lauper for alerting us to Leia; Robin Collett who informed us about Kitten Rescue LA; Ben Lehrer, President, Kitten Rescue, LA who worked with us to get Leia and her sister, Lucy, out, and found a foster for them; Ziggy and Friends Cat Rescue who worked with Downey Shelter to get Leia & Lucy out; Eden Dambrosio who fostered the kittens; Amanda Lively who drove Leia & Lucy 100 miles Sunday morning from Burbank, CA to their flight in Riverside, CA; Pilot Bruce of Pilots N Paws who flew the kittens from Riverside to Modesto; Pilot Sue who flew the kittens from Modesto to Santa Rosa, CA. And Michelle Alyward who coordinated the flights for Pilots N Paws. It takes a network! Thank you!

SNAP CATS NEEDS A NEW HOME!
