Trying to find out if these CA shelter cats need veterinary care

Reader mikken noticed these two cats at the Sutter Co pound in CA.  They both look like they may need urgent veterinary care.

Can anyone in the area call the pound and ask about these two cats?

  1. I’ve emailed them, if I haven’t heard back by tonight I’ll call tomorrow. I’m more in the region than the area (I’m in Santa Rosa) & can’t drive anyway – wouldn’t be able to check it out in person. Is there anyone here in Yuba City, or nearby? Or who knows of someone involved in rescue there?

      1. Thanks Madyson. Some people are at work, can’t make long distance calls or for whatever reason are unable to call. If you are able to call, please go for it.

  2. I have no contacts in California at all. I wish I did, since I’d love to help these two dogs: They’ve been in the shelter for YEARS. It is closing and any animals not rescued will be killed. These are the last 2 dogs and I can’t believe someone can’t pull them. If y’all know of anybody out that way, please let Ingrid know. Her contact information is in the article. The two videos of these dogs are just precious!

  3. Here’s the email response I just received:

    The kitty in the photo was 14 years old and had her front leg amputated several years ago. She was healthy and happy, and she was adopted out on 2/1/12 to a home. Sometimes it can be difficult to get good photos of the animals after they just arrive at the shelter. Many of them are scared and upset at the new surroundings. This make good photography a challenge. After a few days they relax and the ResQ paws group come and photograph them and post the pictures to face book to locate new homes. This is the same appearance of the large black/ white kitty number #A095209. He looked unhappy in the photo, but is healthy. We have a veterinarian that is at the shelter once a week, and she is available any time that we have a question or an sick animal. Thank you for your concern.
    If you have any other questions please feel free to call or e-mail me.
    Thank you,

    1. Thanks Scarlett. I appreciate that they responded. I posted on the FB wall of the ResQ page that Eucritta found and asked if we could raise funds for the kittehs but they deleted my post.

      1. So a rescue that DOESN’T want money or other help? Hmmm, sounds like an odd kind of rescue to me.

    2. He looks like more than “unhappy”. His face appears swollen and he’s sitting face-first in the litter tray – causes for concern.

      I wonder if they’d pull him if he had a sponsor?

  4. I emailed through their site. The FB thing…I still don’t quite get it.

    We’ll see what they say.

  5. I just emailed them too, asking if we might donate for these two kitties specifically, as a group sponsorship.

    1. Here’s the reply I got:

      “Yes, you can donate individually. When you donate via our Chip-In link, just specify the cat(s) by name and if he/she is still in the shelter, please include ID Number.

      Thank you for your help!

      This is their ChipIn link:

      It hasn’t been updated recently – not sure if this affects its function. Anyone know?

    1. Thomas the tom. I’m glad they named him. Now if they could be proactive about saving him, that would be great. I don’t understand why they deleted my post offering to help or why they haven’t responded to your query. It can’t possibly be that so many people are offering to help they are overwhelmed. More cats die int heir cages at this pound than are adopted. I don’t want this cat to fall over dead while offers to help are ignored. There are options. They could pull him and get him to a vet for board & treat while a foster is sought. We could help pay expenses. WHY are they not jumping at the chance to help this cat?

      1. Charitably, I think they must be very busy, as according to their FB page they’ve an adoption & fundraising event this Saturday.

        I just went ahead and sent them $20 for Thomas – I doubt it’s enough to spring him since the ACC charges $50. Wish it were, I just can’t afford much this month.

  6. Kennel (PUPPY MILL)Causes Controversy I can’t believe the ignorance of the leaders of this town or the ignorance of the neighbor. What most I can’t believe is they approved this now are stating”What we’re trying to do is make sure that what we come up with in the end is truly within the law, but that we don’t overstep the law, but at the same time we try to respect the opinions and the feelings of the community, but at the same time recognize the property rights of the individual involved.”
    This whole statement seems like in the end they are going to allow 500 dogs trapped making more dogs.
    The neighbor I really can’t believe she statesThe Martin’s neighbor in Gorham, Marilyn Gentle.
    She says the Martins asked her husband if her family had any objection to their plans for the Route 247 plot.
    She doesn’t see the problem.
    Gentle said “We have a feeling they’ll keep it under control, they’ll know what they’re doing.”Really? No concern for the dogs at all! Link to

    1. I posted a bit of an update under the Open Thread – I won’t repost the links here. Thomas has been listed as ‘adoption fee sponsored’ but he’s still in the shelter so far as I know. I’ve asked repeatedly now for more information on him and received no reply – but, on the other hand, as I’ve asked and asked and kicked in a bit for him specifically – he’s been given a name, and showcased on the FB page.

      Mabel, the elderly tripod, is in foster care – the shelter lists her as ‘adopted,’ that’s where the confusion arises, but she’s really being fostered for ResQpaws.
