Isabella the cat was found in the rubble of a burnt down house this past February in Michigan – her human family escaped the flames, but weren’t able to get her out in time. Somehow, against all odds, however, she survived the fire, but was in bad shape. Her family thought that her extent of injuries were so severe that it would be most humane to have her euthanized and brought her to Affiliated Emergency Veterinary Services in Allen Park. The doctors and staff took one look at her and decided that her story wasn’t over and began doing everything they could to save her.
The family, having just lost their home, was unfortunately unable to afford such extraordinary care and surrendered Isabella to the veterinary center. Luckily, a local rescue group called Shelter to Home heard of her story and stepped up to begin fostering her. Isabella lost the tip of her ears, but is progressing well and doctors expect her to make a full recovery. When she’s healed, the rescue group will have her spayed and she will eventually go up for adoption.
The best part of this story, however, is that when Isabella’s medical bills were starting to pile up, an anonymous donor who heard of her story came forward and offered to pay for them. It warms my heart to know that there are such amazing people out there who believe in helping our furry friends, even when it seems impossible. Shelter To Home often rescues animals that have health problems or at risk for euthanasia, so they rely heavily on donations to care for them.
