Franklin was fearful of human contact. He was found as a stray who had sought the companionship of a local goat. His sweetness was obvious but, being so fearful made adoption nearly impossible. After weeks of working carefully and kindly with Franklin we began to see some improvement. AINF sponsored his neuter, vaccines, microchipping, boarding and medical care. Franklin's story has a very happy ending--he was recently flown out to join 400 other happy pups at Best Friends Animal Society's Dog Town in Utah. Franklin continues to make great strides every day.
In a case of mistaken identity, a caring family in search of their own lost cat discovered this sweet girl near their home with a broken back and crushed tail. They rushed her to the Arroyo Grande Pet ER where she underwent reconstructive surgery that saved her leg and her life.
The following day the family discovered that their own cat was not the cat that they had saved. Relieved that their cat had returned home safe, the family generously contributed towards Arizona’s surgery. AINF covered the remaining expenses and a short while later adopted her to a new family. Happy endings really do come true!
Loni was brought to the AINF after being diagnosed with Feline Leukemia. Although her disease has limited her lifetime, she was successfully adopted by a loving family in Utah.
We make every effort to get cats to their forever homes despite the miles it might take, Loni was no exception. Thanks to the funding available through AINF we were able to provide the treatment, care, and travel needed to get Loni safely to her forever home.
Emmy was rescued along with her kittens from an abandoned building during its demolition. She heroically pulled her kittens out one by one while a construction worker watched in awe. That worker then quickly begged the bulldozer operator to stop until they made sure Emmy and her babies were safe. The sweet feline family was brought to AINF, where they were cared for and Emmy was spayed, vaccinated, and micro chipped.
Dennis was rescued from the shelter and was in bad shape. He had a growth under his tongue that needed to be biopsied and badly broken teeth. AINF provided the care and medication he needed to help him live a normal, healthy life. He was adopted quickly and re-named "Mr. Pinkerton Snuggleton" by his new five-year-old caretaker, but she assures us that you can call him Mr. Pinks for short.
