Every year, 1.5 million shelter animals are euthanized, and roughly 860,000 of them are cats. Many were healthy and just needed a forever home. Rescues across the country try and save as many as they can, but ultimately it depends on people adopting and fostering. A cat in New York was saved just in time, but is still looking for a forever home.
Bella Rose was scheduled to be euthanized at a city shelter to make room for incoming homeless cats. She arrived with some tumors and without knowing if they were benign, she was about to be put down. “You see the shelter was putting me to sleep because they needed my cage for a new homeless cat and because they found out I had tumors… ”
Thankfully, people pleaded for someone to rescue her and Second Chance Rescue (SCR) stepped up.
“We received countless calls/emails/texts to save this cats life and my rescue did just that. I mean this cat had about a hundred comments and many pledge offers to be removed off the to be destroyed list,” posted SCR.
The rescue saw the beautiful Bella Rose and knew she deserved a second chance at life. The tiny 6-pound seven-year-old feline was brought to the shelter’s vet and examined. The tumors were removed and tested, and turned out to be benign.
She is a healthy and friendly cat that just wants a loving home. She does well with children and other cats. So many people advocated for her release from the kill list, but the rescue has not received one application her.
“So many people advocated for my life but not one person applied to adopt me, that makes me so sad. Can you be my forever home ? Please apply to adopt Bella Rose 🌹.”
