Animal Talk Rescue Programs
Our devoted foster homes help us care for more animals than we could if we were restricted to rescue space only. They provide the love and shelter for litters of newborn kittens or a sick adult, we provide all the food, medicine and veterinary care they need.
The best way to reduce pet homelessness is through spay/neuter. All the cats we receive--whether old or young, tame or feral, are spayed or neutered.
We are a no-kill rescue, dedicated to finding homes for all adoptable cats (and other animals). Many of our animals come from high-kill areas around the state. Feral cats who cannot be socialized are placed in appropriate situation such as a barn or protected enclosure with a caretaker.
Recent Successes and Current Challenges
Hank was a kitten who got lost and began living as a stray. His nylon collar became wet in the rain and shrank, cutting open his neck and endangering his life. Despite Hank’s terrible injuries, ATR didn't to give up on him. After we provided extensive surgery to reconstruct his neck, Hank began to recover nicely. His ordeal has earned him the nickname “Hankenstein," and he's now living comfortably in a new home.
Cases link Hank's are all too common. Luckily, we are here to help. Hank's surgery cost more than $500. We also spay/neuter hundreds of cats every year, at a cost of more than $5,000 annually. Many cats we rescue are older, in need of long-term care and treatment or costly dental surgery, before they can be adopted into loving homes. Donations help us save lives!
