Little Bear’s Story
Little Bear was surrendered to the rescue from Richford in July of 2023. His leg had been severed at the knee by an illegal leg hold trap. He was only four weeks old. We did weekly trips to the Stowe Veterinary Clinic where Dr. Greg helped us care for Little Bear over a four month period. Little Bear is now able to run, jump on the cat tree and play with his toys and he just found his forever home where he will thrive, be loved and spoiled.
Willow was a rescue from another organization, when we obtained her, she was expecting kittens any day. She gave birth to 7 little ones, all but one survived. Willow provided us with a special gift by taking and fostering two kittens who’s mother had been killed. Willow provided nutrition, parenting and caring to these babies and we helped by supplementing feedings. Willow was very sick herself and neither our Veterinarian or ourselves were aware of how ill she was until 4 weeks later she passed. Willow held on to provide what all eight kittens needed to survive until the rescue team could take over. She was a special gift who gave of herself wholly and unconditionally.
Bella was a rescue from the side of the road. One of our volunteers rescued her and she had a bad eye, she was taken to Burlington Emergency Veterinary Service where we were told she needed to have it removed. We went to our regular Vet the next day were the eye ruptured and she needed emergency surgery. Bella did not let that stop her she continued to play with her foster brother and they would snuggle and watch the birds together she healed and was adopted by a very caring loving family, she is the princess of the house.
