Maksim’s Story

Maksim was Adopted On 07/29/2015

 Walking into work one morning our staff member stumbled upon a cage outside. A loud cry startled her as she bent down to see what was inside. She was surprised to find a sickly kitten with such a loud voice! After close examination, it was determined that Maksim was alarmingly underweight, had a significant upper respiratory infection, and the most severe case of ringworm we had ever seen. Our one-month old kitten didn’t let his intense itching stop him from maintaining his sunny disposition and playful attitude. After IV fluids, antibiotics, and many anti-fungal baths, Maksim’s bright eyes,
previously swollen shut, started to open a little bit wider every day. After three months of treatment, Maksim was ready for adoption. It wasn’t long before he and his new Mom
skipped away into their happy life together.

Won’t you please make a donation and help change the futures of kittens like Maksim?

Bella’s Story

Bella was Adopted On 9/30/2015

Bella an 8 month old boxer mix, was surrendered to Animal Control in Philadelphia in horrible condition. The large and severe wounds on her back proved she was a victim of painful chemical burns. Bella required multiple surgeries and almost daily medical care to treat her wounds. Thanks to the hard work of the Saved Me Staff & volunteers, Bella is now healed and was adopted into a loving home on September 30th, 2015.

Will you make a donation so we can save more pets with emergency medical needs like Bella?

Good News for Pikachu!

Screen shot 2015-01-21 at 2.03.53 PM

Pikachu is a 5 year old Pekingese who was picked up as a stray by Animal Control. She had a badly infected and ulcerated right eye, a corneal abrasion on the left eye, dental disease and despite having been in pain and neglected she still sought human affection. As soon as she arrived it was apparent that the eye needed emergency attention. A quick plea went out

to the public and within hours we raised the $1,550.00 needed to make her comfortable and begin the healing process. She had surgery to remove the destroyed eye, dental cleaning

and a few extractions, and has begun medical treatment for her other eye. We hope to have her functioning at 100% soon but in the meantime she is enjoying the extra attention she receives from the staff.
