Angelo: Endured significant abuse or trauma for a very long time
Angelo a kitty's heartbreaking case.Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs on Friday, February 8, 2019
Angelo was sitting in a high-kill shelter in North Carolina and endured either significant abuse or trauma for a very long time. He has new and very old scarring all over his head. He is covered in burns and wounds that have made his skin so tense it pulls his eyes back.
On top of that, Angelo is also FIV Positive. The shelter euthanizes FIV-positive cats.
Despite all of what he has going on, including mites, a very severe skin infection a cold and an eye infection, Second Chance Rescue was told that he is the friendliest, lovable cat they have ever met. This is not a quick in and out at the vet case as Angelo needs to go to a hospital to get specialized care for everything he has going on. This will take weeks, if not months, of medical care.
Second Chance Rescue immediately set out to rescue Angelo from the shelter and immediately take him to the vets to give him the care he needs. He might not be the most beautiful cat with his disfigurements, but that should never stop him from being worthy of love...we all deserve to be loved.
Angelo the cat is currently at the hospital in North Carolina. Yesterday, he was put under anesthesia so that his wounds could be tended to. He was very dehydrated, has a serious eye infection, a horrible infestation of mites, herpes and he is light FIV positive. A lot of the skin around his head is scarred and tense. He will never look like a "normal" cat. The staff at the hospital agrees with Silvia that he is a very sweet and good cat. We don't know what this animal has endured in his past but we will guarantee that from this day on out he will know nothing but love.
Angelo, is a very special cat and he needs support, support no one ever gave this poor guy.
We gave created this campaign to give Angelo a second chance and the medical care he needs to survive. With your help, we can save Angelo together.
