Raider – survives Parvo and is ready for a home!


Raider was rescued in early January from SJACC as a 4month old pup. Four days after his rescue he started vomiting and running a fever. Quick work on the rescuers part that she noticed and got him to the Veterinarian quickly where he was diagnosed with Parvo. Given all the medications, Hillary nursed Raider through the Parvo. So thanks to Hillary for her taking in Raider and then her managing him through the Parvo, Raider will soon be ready for his forever home. He is affectionate, active and will make someone a great dog. PAWS for SJACS is happy to have been able to help with his medical needs. If you are interested in adopting Raider, let us know and we can give your info to Hillary.

Cat uses some of 9 lives….

Yet, with a team effort including 13th St Cats and Dr Rusher’s Rescue Services,  Adrian is alive.  Adrian, a 13th St Cats kitten adopted last year (so just over 1year old now), “left” his home and ended up in an emergency vet a month later, close to death, 2 pounds lighter, a broken tail, 3/4 of which was missing, degloved on his back with hundreds of maggots in the wound,  and a broken leg.  Dr. Rusher and the fosters working closely, were key to saving Adrian.  Those first days were critical.  And then Dr. Rusher and her team donated their services as much as possible, reducing 13th St Cats cost significantly, but still there are expenses including the leg surgery which required a specialist.
You can help fund Adrian’s expenses by donating to 13th St Cats; his webpage has a sponsorship link or just donate to our general efforts at and mention Adrian as your motivation!   Rescues can’t happen without donations, and these are so appreciated, including the Vet’s support.
