Second Hand Pures is a small, no-kill shelter in a Milwaukee, WI. For over 15 years we have been rescuing cats and finding them the perfect forever home. We are run completely by volunteers and funded only through fundraisers and donations. We have recently taken in some cats needing extensive medical care. Remington was a farm kitten whose back was broken and mended poorly. With loving care from his foster mom and physical therapy he is now able to walk with the aid of a custom cart. Shadow came to us unable to move his back legs. He has a rare disease that has no cure and will shorten his life. But with physical therapy and much love he is living a happy life with his foster. He and Remington live together and are friends.
Rescuing cats needing surgeries for everything from urinary blockages to a cat who swallowed a needle and thread has been very gratifying but has also depleted our fund for veterinary care. If you can help with any amount it would be greatly appreciated.
