I was found in a very bad neighborhood by a lady trapping feral cats. I had an infection in my eyes that caused me to be blind. Instead of getting help for me, several families watched me run in circles and thought it was funny. I was so scared and I didn't know what to do. She brought me to a place where I got help and was safe. One of my eyes doesn't work at all anymore but I can see shadows and light with the other. I am a good girl and love to play with my friends. I get around pretty well but need lots of love and patience to be the girl I can be. I get scared at first when you hold me but I know with patience, I will learn to trust people again. Please give me a chance at a normal life.
- Because Hillsborough County Animal Services has to euthanize over 19,000 dogs and cats a year because there is no place for them.
- For kittens like Preston, who was attacked by a dog and left in a bucket to die until he came into the care of St. Francis Society.
- For dogs like Lucky who was abandoned in a field until rescued and cared for by St. Francis Society.
- Because St. Francis Society Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, which means that nearly 100 percent of donations go towards animal care.
- For cats like Mack who came to St. Francis Society with debilitating conjunctivitis. His eye was removed and he now lives a healthy life in a loving home.
- Because St. Francis Society is a no-kill animal rescue organization.
- For the motherless kittens who would otherwise be euthanized each year if not for the volunteers at St. Francis Society who bottle-feed and raise them.
- Because St. Francis Society, established in 1997, has a long and successful animal rescue history in Tampa, Florida.
- For dogs like Rupert, who nearly starved to death and only wanted another chance to live a good life.
- Because times are tough - donations are down, but animal abandonment and surrenders are up.
