Purr Partners Feline Rescue

Purr Partners was incorporated in 2009 with two volunteers, 4 cats, and no budget. These two friends realized the need for a cat only rescue that worked with rural shelters where cats most often lost their lives if they entered the shelter. Most rescues worked primarily with dogs, but the cats seemed to be forgotten, and the suffering was heartbreaking. So, Purr Partners was founded to help shelter cats have a way out. The decision was made to concentrate on saving the lives of those most in jeopardy and with little hope of survival. High kill rural shelters became the focus for Purr Partners, and that is still true today. From those two original founders with no budget, the rescue has grown to over a hundred active volunteers and a budget of approximately $100,000. From the first four cats pulled from the shelter, Purr Partners now has between 100 and 150 cats and kittens in foster care at any given time. From approximately 150 pulls and adoptions that first year, we have increased to over 2500 shelter rescues and adoptions in 2016, and we are still growing!

Meet Abacus.

She is only 12 weeks old and is one of our emergency rescues that we took in this past Friday after receiving a message from a fellow cat lover who is stationed at Fort Bragg. We have worked with him before as he cares for cats in a feral colony near the base. He has no organization behind him — just a guy that cares for cats. He contacted Purr Partners about getting help for Abacus who had sustained a horrific injury.

Within 24 hours, Abacus was at Bunn Animal Hospital and had her leg amputated. The pain she was in must have have been excruciating. The vet tech stayed by her side the entire weekend to make sure she was comfortable and not in any more pain. She is the sweetest cat you have ever met and purrs like a freight train, even in the face of such an awful injury.

Thankfully, Purr Partners was able to immediately respond in this situation. Without our support, there are many cases for which money must be raised before help arrives. Often, there is not enough time to wait.

Emergency situations like these are just one reason why our volunteers work so hard to raise money though special events, such as the upcoming 5K & Fun Walk, Sunday, November 5 in Wake Forest. http://www.purrpartners.org/5k/ We would love to count on your support, whether as a competitive runner, walker or donor. Become a partner in our mission to save more lives — Until They All Have A Home.

Keep Abacus in your thoughts! She will be with us for awhile as she heals. If you would like to donate to her care you can do so at: http://www.purrpartners.org/donations/
