Review for Northeast Animal Rescue, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was driving from New York to Philadelphia this past October to visit my boyfriend when I stopped at a rest stop in New Jersey to get gas. While I was Leaving the rest stop, I noticed a grey cat sitting outside of a gazebo. I stopped and got out of my car. I called the cat and he came to right to me. It was raining that day, he was wet and emaciated and clearly had an infection of some kind. I knew I couldn't leave him there so I scooped him up and took him with me to Philadelphia. My boyfriend and I spent all day driving around, first to PAWS which was closed, then to the SPCA which quoted me over $1,000 to help him. I started to cry because as a college student, I don't even have that much money and they were my last hope. We spent the rest of the day in my car with him reaching out to people and trying to find someone to take him. I knew he would be euthanized if I brought him to animal control. The great people at Project Meow put me in contact with Northeast Animal Rescue and we met up with them and they took him in, even knowing the extensive amount of work he needed. They kept me updated on him and now he is available for adoption. I am so grateful to them because most places would not take a case like his, and if they hadn't I have no idea what I would have done. Now this guy gets a much deserved second chance. This is a great rescue. I will be a lifetime supporter now! Thank you!!
