Angel is a kitten who was drenched in bleach!
911: KITTEN DRENCHED IN BLEACH! In rescue, all critically injured animals hurt our hearts. When a baby begins their life it should be joyful, that first breath of air, cuddling with their mother, eating enough to grow big and strong and to play. To remain innocent.We were heart stricken today when we received a call regarding a beautiful little baby kitten who was drenched in bleach.
The kittens hair is gone in patches due to the chemical. His breathing is labored, he can't eat, and now he cannot stand up. Imagine coming into this world and being submerged in chemicals and just like that, the beauty of life escapes you. Second Chance Rescue NYC took one look at this baby and stepped in to try and save her life. Currently our little angel has chemically induced pneumonia and is sitting at their partner vet (24 hour intensive care) on oxygen machines, feeding tubes, IVs. Poked in every part of his body.. to give this baby a chance. To say we are heart broken is an under statement. The tears keep flowing, our hearts keep breaking, we all whisper prayers, we pray for a miracle.
Please, please let little Angel have the opportunity to feel the beauty of the world. We pray that one day, this will be just a memory and little angel can be held, can hold his own, can enjoy a nice meal, cuddle in the arms of a forever home, to sleep in a warm bed. His care will be extensive, it will be expensive, it is a fight SCR NYC is willing to fight. His fate is unknown, through his donors we will fight this battle for him. We will search for justice for Angel. We will FIGHT the long battle his little body cannot do on his own.
This is where we are asking for your help! We have partnered with SCR to create these animal saving shirts, sweaters and totes to raise the funds needed to save little Angel. With your help they can save her and give her a new life full of love and pain free.
UPDATE 7-17-17: A message from Angel. "I woke up early today, a little nervous, really excited, today I am heading to my forever home. My family is really amazing, they love me so much and I love them. Just the thought of how the end was near and now I am going to live a beautiful life.
So I get in the car to go on transport and right before they lock the door I ask, "take a photo of me now, show my friends, my dear followers ..that miracles are real." Thank you for saving me. Look at my before and afters, they tell my story. Remember me when you see an animal suffering, remember me when you lose hope, remember me when you really need a miracle, remember miracles do happen. You are my miracle and I am yours. There are many like me out there and when you find them, love them like you love me. Together we can change the world.
