ANIMALS......

C.A.R.E (Community Animal Rescue Effort) for Gardner Animals, Inc. is a nonprofit animal rescue organization committed to providing stray, abandoned, abused and unwanted companion animals from Gardner and surrounding communities with shelter, nourishment, medical care and socialization while we work to find them loving forever homes.

We are finding that an increasing number of homeless pets with nowhere else to go are coming in requiring non-routine and expensive veterinary care in order to become adoptable.  Pets like Tango.

The adoption fee for these pets does not and cannot cover the cost we incur and the cages we have to hold these pets in are in a state of disrepair.  We are fundrazing for our emergency medical fund and to purchase new cages.    

Tango was a stray cat from the streets of Fitchburg, MA. We were alerted to his plight by a concerned citizen last March. She had been ordered to stop feeding him and several feral cats near her residence or face fines and jeopardize her tenancy. She tried to convince herself that the feral cats would somehow survive, but feared the worse for Tango. She described him as dirty and matted with an eye injury and/or infection.

We contacted Animal Control and a local TNR group about the cats and said we would take Tango and another tame one. That is all we had room for. This group offered to trap Tango for us. He came in on April 4, 2013. We were not prepared for what we saw that day. He was terribly matted, thin, ravenous and absolutely filthy. He had obviously been on his own for quite a while. We weren’t sure what was wrong with his left eye.

A veterinarian’s examination revealed he did not have a left eye. He needed several teeth extracted. He had not been neutered, he is about six years old and… he had a wound of unknown origin and no vaccination history meaning he had to be quarantined for six months. She said he would not have survived had we not rescued him and marvels at how good he looks now.

Tango has had the necessary teeth removed. He was shaved and bathed. His wound has healed. He has been enjoying the best of foods and his soft bed. He has been tested, neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and treated for parasites. His fur has grown in and his quarantine is over! Now he is available for adoption! He is a friendly, handsome, appreciative kitty. His will be a happy ending. We would like to ensure more of these.
