Fundraising Friday: PAG-ASA Posted on Friday, 10 October 2014

CARA Welfare Philippines - Animal Welfare - cat rescue - Pagasa


This sweet cat was lying weak and helpless by the side of the road when she was spotted by a CARA volunteer. We are not sure what happened to her exactly but she is badly injured with her skin ripped off. Her injuries indicate that she must have been run over by a vehicle, then left alone with a gaping wound that was already starting to rot. We cannot imagine the pain this brave cat had to endure.

The volunteer immediately rescued the cat who is now at the CARA Clinic. He named her PAG-ASA , which means “hope” — something we must cling to at this point. Pag-asa may be in for the long haul, the healing process is likely to take months. The lovely cat can hardly walk but she can stand up and eat her food. She is also grooming herself, which we take to be a good sign. Another CARA volunteer has kindly offered to foster Pag-asa when she is well enough.

Will you help us save Pag-asa? When her photos were shared on Facebook a few days ago, we already received donations but her daily treatment will be expensive and will take some time. We are hoping you will help us raise more funds for her. Donations in any amount will be much appreciated. To donate to Pag-asa’s medical fund, please see below. Thank you very much!
