Featured Success Story:
After being severely burned on his ears, paws and face and badly beaten, Mondo was turned into a local high-kill shelter when an area resident found the near lifeless feline. Mondo was in need of immediate medical care, not to mention he was terrified of humans- and rightfully so. The shelter sent out an alert, as they did not have the funds to provide the medical care that Mondo needed. Advocates 4 Animals responded and arranged for a successful rescue of Mondo. In addition to ongoing veterinary care and top of the line nutrition, Mondo received one on one rehabilitation- for his emotional, social and mental well-being. Mondo had his own private bedroom in one of our wonderful A4A volunteer foster homes- where volunteers worked with him day and night, to gain his trust. After just one month, Mondo was no longer hiding in the corner- instead, he was sitting on his foster families laps, purring and loving every morsel of food and every bit of attention he was receiving. Veterinarians did not think Mondo’s facial hair would ever grow back- but miraculously, it did! Mondo was adopted by a loving family in Huber Heights, OH where he is the king of the household! We couldn’t be more proud of Mondo and we are incredibly happy for both Mondo and for his forever family- what a purr-fect life!
