THE GIFT OF LIFE
GEORGE WAS A FORGOTTEN FELINE.
George came to Heavenly Creatures in March of 2019 in rough shape - living outside is hard on an animals' body (and on their hearts).
As you can see, his coat was TERRIBLE. His vet said it was one of the worst matting cases she had ever seen.
His teeth were also a mess and he tested positive for FIV and FELV, which means that he is immune-compromised.
George came to us already-neutered and for reasons we can't get into here, we believe he was abandoned.
Today, George is safe in foster care and has a very devoted foster mom.
George's foster mom has her own health challenges and she and George are very good for each other. They will stay together for whatever time George has left.
Help Us Give Animals Like George The Gift Of Life!
Using the form below, you can make the donation as a gift to someone or in memory of someone who has passed:
You then choose to have either an e-card sent to them (or their family, as the case may be) or to have HC notify them of the donation by sending a card by regular mail.
You will receive a tax receipt through e-mail as soon as your donation is processed.
We help those who cannot help themselves.
Sadly, the homeless cat population in Newfoundland is worse than ever. It is estimated that here are tens of thousands of homeless cats and kittens on the streets of our province.
The average donation is $25, which is a pretty affordable amount.
When just eight people make that average $25 donation, we can pay to neuter a male cat. When twelve people make it, we can spay a female cat.
Help us cut down on the suffering by getting to the root of the problem.

SUCCESS STORY: SAPPER AKA LUCKY
Does anyone remember Lucky, an emergency rescue from October?
While animal rescue is sometimes emotionally challenging work, when we receive updates like Lucky's, it makes it all worthwhile.
Lucky came to us the second week in October; he was a sick kitty who had been found in the parking lot of a grocery store.
Like many homeless kittens who find themselves on the street trying to survive (either because they've been born there, or have been abandoned by their owners), Lucky was in hard shape.
Lucky would not likely have made it to adulthood on his own. He was covered in lice, was starving, and had a very bad eye.
HC got him to a vet, and then advertised for a foster home for him.
On Oct. 11th, a couple of days after his rescue), Lucky went to live with a woman who agreed to foster him for us.
A little over a month has passed, and what a difference time and TLC make!
Now renamed Sapper, this little guy has gotten much healthier in the last month, and has grown like a weed!
The best news of all is that his foster mom has decided that she has to become his purrmanant mom - she has realized that she can't let him go.
Lucky/Sapper is living proof of why spaying and neutering is so important, why foster parents are angels, and also why animal-rescue groups such as ours are desperately needed in our community.
Sapper is one of the lucky ones (no pun intended), but too many homeless kittens don't get their happy endings.
Please get you cats fixed, and if you have ever thought about fostering or donating, there is no time like the present!
