The Hope Fund is a medical emergency fund set aside for the most vulnerable, rescued cats and kittens in dire need of expensive medical care. This fund allows Kitten Rescue to rehabilitate cats and kittens suffering from extensive injuries and give them a new lease on life.
Hope was a kitten who had been hit by a car and then given Baby Tylenol by someone who did not realize Tylenol is toxic for cats. Hope was rushed to an emergency pet hospital, where they determined she would need extensive surgery to save her shattered leg, plus intensive care to flush the toxins from her system. Kitten Rescue reached out to our supporters for help and the response was truly overwhelming. Within hours, enough money had been raised to cover Hope’s hospitalization and the anticipated costs of her surgery. Donations kept coming in, including a $5,000 anonymous donation from a very generous sponsor!
Sadly, Hope’s injuries proved to be too much for her, and she passed away during surgery. In Hope’s honor, Kitten Rescue used the remainder of the money received to establish the “The Hope Fund” — a fund set aside specifically to help other cats and kittens in such dire medical need in the future. Hope’s little life was not in vain, and because of her, many more lives have been helped.
We dedicated this page to little Hope… and to all of the Hope Fund kitties who we never give up on. Please consider donating to the Hope Fund, so together we can pay it forward.
