June 2013 news headline: Dozens of animals found dead and sick in Atwater
"He said many of the animals were severely emaciated, some had their eyes swollen shut, and others were infected with diseases. A team of veterinarians from across the state evaluated the pets and euthanized about two hundred of them on site."
I first visited Last Hope Cat Kingdom a few years ago and upon my first visit was overwhelmed by their tremendous commitment to helping needy animals. They help SO many animals that are abused, sick and without homes. The organization is powered by a group of the most devoted volunteers who give so much of themselves to help keep the organization going. Seeing Last Hope's commitment inspired me to want to do more, to help more, to make a difference, simply because I saw how much this organization was doing. I cannot speak highly enough for the level of care that this organization provides and would recommend them to anyone who wants to get involved and help animals in need.
There was a stray dog that had been abandoned in my neighborhood. I had been trying to catch it for a while but it was being continually hit by people and was very shy. I was not sure what to do with it even if I did manage to catch it so I contacted Last hope. Pam Moody contacted me from their facebook page and worked with me each step of the way. When I was finally able to catch the poor sweet thing she came and transported her to the last hope shelter. there the dog was finally looked at and given medical attention. She is sweet and wagging her tail and starting to warm up to people after her horrible ordeal. Thanks Last Hope.
