Rescue story: “He was a stray from Quincy that got brought to the MSPCA shelter when I worked there. They thought he was too skittish and were going to euthanize him so I took him. He was about 8 months old. The first time I saw him I thought he looked like a goddamned alien.”

It takes a village to raise an animal so would you please consider contributing to a pet care fund for Katie’s cat, Dave, who was recently diagnosed with a serious rare and genetic heart disease. Katie’s friends started this fund for her because she doesn’t have the amount of money that’s needed to take care of Dave! Click here to make a donation. Thanks!!
