Featured Success Story

Featured Success Story: Garth

garth

Trying his best to survive among 40+ other stray and abandoned cats at a busy apartment complex located just feet away from a highway, Garth spent his days literally dodging bullets from apartment residents who shot at the cats “for fun”. Some residents chased, kicked and tortured the innocent felines. To add to the situation, none of the cats were spayed/neutered- which caused regular fighting between male cats and constant kittens being born in the area. A senior citizen living in one of the apartment buildings started to feed the cats and soon she was told that the local pound was coming in to capture the cats and euthanize them in an effort to control the issue at the apartment. Desperate to help the cats, the kind senior citizen contacted over fifty no-kill rescue organizations in search of help. Only one rescue answered her plea - and that was A4A . Several months later, all of the cats at the apartment complex were successfully rescued and vetted. Most were in need of serious socialization and emotional rehabilitation. Garth had been so badly abused that he would attack any human when he saw their hands. The veterinarian we were working with at the time told us that we would never be able to rehabilitate him. In addition, he had a back leg that he pulled behind him- from a prior broken bone that had since healed. But A4A founders had a strong feeling that Garth could be rehabilitated in every way- thus began Garth’s journey. Garth was given his own private bedroom in an A4A foster home and had 24/7 care. The first month- he attacked every time you entered the room. He was terrified. Yet he would look at the volunteers as if he so badly wanted to be petted, he was just too scared to trust. Slowly we earned his trust by placing tasty food out for him- with our hands- so that he could correlate hands with something good, instead of something horrible. With much persistence, this tactic worked. After several months of small, but noted progress, Garth allowed us to pet him. Several months later, he sat on our laps and several months after that he was getting along with all humans, with other cats and with dogs! We could hardly believe the amazing transformation he had made. Soon thereafter Garth was adopted into the most wonderful home to call his very own. Thinking he would be nervous about the transition on adoption day, A4A volunteers prepared his adopter. But when Garth arrived to his forever home, he immediately jumped on his humans lap, began purring and we don’t think he has ever stopped since! Without a doubt, Garth will always have a special place in our hearts.
