Meet Raccoon and Frankenkitty.
These two cute balls of fur and love are best friends for life, but it wasn’t always that way. If it wasn’t for the San Antonio Humane Society, this friendship might never have happened.
In early September 2016, a friend of the San Antonio Humane Society (SAHS) found a small kitten. He noticed this poor kitten was not able to walk normally so he decided to bring her to the SAHS. The staff at the SAHS immediately went to work to help heal and find a foster home for little Raccoon.
While Raccoon was at his foster home, growing and recovering, another kitten was brought in by a good Samaritan. This person found a severely injured kitten and knew that if it didn’t receive medical attention soon, the kitten would not survive. Although able to walk, this kitten had severe injuries to his tail and back end. After a thorough evaluation by the staff at the SAHS, the affectionately-named Frankenkitty was treated and began his road to recovery.
Raccoon soon returned to the SAHS and needed a place to stay and was paired up with a new resident at SAHS. This new roommate was Frankenkitty. Although both are still recovering from their wounds, these two rascals became the very best of friends. Raccoon’s leg eventually healed to the point where it no longer needed surgery and Frankenkitty, recovering from a medically necessary amputated tail, remains a loving companion to both human and animal alike.
Raccoon and Frankenkitty continue to recover in foster care together and remain best “fur-riends” to this day.
None of this would have been possible without the support of donors. Without our Humane Heroes, there is no telling what would have happened to these two. Please take a moment today to become a Humane Hero to our needy pets by making a contribution to the Humane Heroes Annual Fund.
The cost of caring, feeding, sheltering, and medically treating the pets at the SAHS costs the shelter, on average, $35 each day for each pet in our care. Every donation to the Humane Heroes Annual Fund helps ensure pets like Raccoon and Frankenkitty continue to benefit from the resources needed to be saved, cared for, and adopted.
Your support is essential in saving the lives of animals like Raccoon and Frankenkitty and your generosity can help them find their future best friends for life.
