LITLE JOHNNY CAME IN FROM THE COLD

Howdy! ,
I'm Lame Little Johnny, a ten week old precious male kitten, who desperately needs a helping paw! When I was younger, my front left leg was badly injured. I was shunned by my mom and siblings and was left to fend for myself. I dragged myself around for several weeks, starving, weak, and full of fleas and worms! Finally, a nice gentleman found me and called Delaware Valley Veterinary Hospital, who told him to call animal rescue, also a client of Del Val. I was examined by Dr. John Vinciguerra. He told my rescue mom that my leg had to be amputated! However, before I can be operated on, I must put on some weight and get stronger. Dr. Steve Milden and Dr. John Vinciguerra of Delaware Valley Veterinary Hospital will be doing my surgery. My rescue mom says they are the BEST and that they will take great care of me!
After I heal, I will need a very special loving home.
Thank you and please say a prayer for me.
Love,
Little Johnny
PS

UPDATE!!!!!!! LITTLE JOHNNY IS RECOVERING NICELY FROM HIS SURGERY. HE IS RUNNING AND PLAYING ON HIS THREE GOOD LEGS. LITTLE JOHNNY SENDS HIS LOVE TO ALL THE CARING PEOPLE WHO HELPED HIM THROUGH HIS ORDEAL.

UPDATE!!!!!!! LITTLE JOHNNY HAS BEEN ADOPTED BY HIS FOSTER PARENTS WHO COULD NOT BEAR TO PART WITH HIM. HE IS NOW ENJOYING LIFE IN HIS PERMANENT FOREVER HOME. MANY THANKS TO THIS WONDERFUL MOTHER AND DAUGHTER DUO FOR ALL THEY HAVE DONE ON BEHALF OF HOMELESS ANIMALS.

"I ask for the privilege of not being born ... not to be born until you can assure me of a home and a master to protect me, and a right to live as long as I am physically able to enjoy life ... not to be born until my body is precious and men have ceased to exploit it because it is cheap and plentiful." Need we say more? Pet overpopulation is a monumental problem. Spay/Neuter is the solution.


Every day we give thanks for the wonderful veterinarians who give their time and talents on behalf of our homeless animals. They may not reap great financial benefits here on earth, but they are sure to receive the most wonderful rewards in heaven when they again meet all the grateful furry angels they have saved.

CALENDAR YEAR 2009 BEGAN WITH WONDERFUL WORDS FROM OUR FURRY ANGELS

My mom has been telling me about all the wonderful things you are doing to help me. There are not enough meows in the entire world to let you know how much this means to me and my mom. I worry about my mom just as much as she worries about me. She has been so upset trying to find a way to make me better. No one wanted me when I was at the shelter. I was old and tired and skinny and really not so pretty to look at. But, my mom saw the beauty in me and told me once she held me and I wrapped my paws around her neck she knew at once I was going home with her. I remember when she put me in her car to take me home on that first day of my new life, she whispered to me that she would give me the best life she could give me for the rest of my days. If my meows could be turned into words, I could make her feel better and let her know that she is doing just that. My mom is having it rough right now but she is doing all she can to help me first and with you as my friend also, I know I will get better. Your right, Dr.John is very handsome and was gentle and kind to me. Gotta Go, my mom is going into the kitchen and it is my job to meow for more food. Love and Meows Tigger

    CAT SPAY DAY IS A BIG SUCCESS . February 24, 2009, Paws and Claws sponsored its 15th Annual “CAT SPAY DAY”. In recognition of the importance of spay/neuter, Pennsville Township Mayor and Committee declared February 24 as Cat Spay Day in Pennsville Township. Coupons redeemable for free cat spay/neuter surgery by participating veterinarians were made available to qualifying Pennsville residents at the Pennsville Pound.

    KIND NEWS IN 2009: Every month, PACS makes available the award-winning newspaper, KIND NEWS, to more than three thousand children enrolled in the second, third and fourth grades. This publication helps teach children respect for animals and the environment.

    PAWS AND CLAWS SOCIETY WAS A PROUD SPONSOR OF THE 2009 NO-KILL CONFERENCE IN WASHINGTON, DC. May 2-3, 2009, the No Kill Advocacy Center is teaming up with the Animal Law program at George Washington University Law School to bring together the nation’s most successful shelter directors and the nation’s top animal lawyers. They will help you create a No Kill community and teach you how to use the legal system to save the lives of animals. www.nokillconference.org for more information.

    PENNSVILLE POUND PURRFECT PETS was developed and implemented by PACS and has successfully transitioned the Pound into a no-kill facility serving four townships in Salem County. Every animal picked up by Animal Control Officers in the four townships received loving care and medical treatment to make them whole again. Abandoned animals were spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for internal and external parasites, bathed, groomed and socialized while housed at the Pound. When ready, they were either adopted directly by the Animal Adoption Coordinator provided by Paws and Claws or were transported to one of PACS “Circle of Compassion for Animals” partners where they were housed in foster care and placed with their forever families.

    GIVE A LITTLE BOWL OF LOVE 2009 was a year of great economic uncertainty for many families and their beloved pets. Paws and Claws Society is committed to helping people keep their pets. The need was urgent and PACS met that need with the purchase of more than $9,000 in pet food. PACS commitment to this life saving endeavor insured that struggling families would not be forced to surrender their animals to already overflowing animal shelters.

This was as colony that was cause for consternation... Thanks for your help in this most remarkable day..... Thanks again for your very great help in this very good story with a most happy ending.
