Adopt Me!

Adopt Me!

For the month of June, Beading Divas to the Rescue is proud to be fundraising for Chi Luv Bug Small Dog Rescue. CLB were the winners of our drawing at A Cause for Applause. Congratulations!

Meet Cooper who was a stray from PACC. He was on the biter list because he tends to be frightened by fast movement. After having him a week or two, it was discovered that he is deaf, so he reacts poorly to being startled.

Through hand signals, Chi Luv Bug works with him at meet and greets, so his future adopter will have some sort of foundation to work on. Besides being easily startled, he loves pets and cuddling and will be your great companion. His future adopters will need to learn to give him visual commands.

Cooper needs a home without children under the age of 14. He is neutered, up to date on shots and has a microchip.

You can meet Cooper and other dogs every Saturday at PETCO (Wrightstown/Pantano) from noon to 4 pm.

Buy me - help small dogs

Why No Kill Pima County?

Why No Kill Pima County?

No Kill Pima County is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that began in 2012 as a grassroots community group of committed individuals.

Their mission is dedicated to saving homeless pets and feral cats in Pima County through the rigorous implementation of the national No Kill equation, a national model that has been implemented by more than 200 communities across the nation.

With thousands of helpless animals needlessly destroyed at Pima County’s animal shelter each year, they aim to inspire change in the community through education, awareness and resources regarding non-lethal options so that these animals can have a new start to a better life.

Over the past two years, No Kill Pima County has held bimonthly public meetings to inform and educate and has most recently worked with the shelter to set up a “Help Desk” for people coming to the shelter with animals to be the first line of assistance and to help counsel and offer alternate solutions as many of those animals will never again know the comfort of a home and the love of a family once they are left there.

I'm worth saving

I’m worth saving

Foster homes save lives. One of their most ingenious ideas was to set up and implement a foster care directory called SaFER Lifeline where people can sign up and peruse various foster opportunities and rescues can post their foster care needs and requirements. Better than Match.com!

The important work of No Kill Pima County has also resulted in a collaborative effort to trap, neuter and return feral cats as well as implement a spay and neuter certificate program.

No Kill Pima County established an Facebook presence with a following of 3,500+.

Blind Abyssinian kitten saved by Hermitage Cat Shelter 2014/04/12

saved by Hermitage Cat Shelter

saved by Hermitage Cat Shelter

written by Hermitage Cat Shelter – April Beading Divas bracelet fundraiser recipient

Let’s talk about a day that started like any other. November 7, 2013. In northeast Tucson, a litter of purebred Abyssinians is born. Nine kittens in all (a large litter for a cat!). Five boys, four girls. Mom was doing well and nurturing her kittens as well as any new mother.

As time passed, though, one kitten in the litter was noticeably smaller than the others. She was cream colored—one of the most desirable new traits in Abyssinian cats. The owner of the litter had hoped for such a prized possession. Surely, this one will bring a high price.

Days went by, then weeks. As each little angel opened its eyes to the world for the very first time, they all began exploring and causing the kind of ruckus that would be expected of such a large group of kittens. Our little cream kitten, however, proved to be more special than first thought.

As her eyelids opened, it was revealed that she didn’t have any eyes at all. Small, sightless orbs were present, with no hope of attaining vision.

I think you know where this story is headed. That sweet little kitten with the prized coat color could not provide the breeder with what she had hoped for after all. As a matter of fact, she could provide her with none of it.

Off to PACC she was taken, to be humanely euthanized for being imperfect.

We at The Hermitage rescue hundreds of PACC cats that nobody wants.

The adoption coordinator at PACC knew immediately what to do. While our staff was rescuing other cats whose lives would have ended that day, our little Abyssinian kitten was placed in a box carrier and shuffled in with the other rescue cats.
Counting heads, as I do, when the cats come back from PACC, I said, “Everyone is accounted for. But who is in this box?” The look on everyone’s faces was priceless. Of course they didn’t know the answer. This little angel had just one chance to make it out alive and the decision had been made to take that chance.

I said, “The box doesn’t even weigh anything. What could be inside?” Oh, you cannot imagine the hearts that melted the moment I lifted our little sightless kitten into my arms! Then came the head butt that left no dry eyes in the room!

We named her Braille, but we call her Braillie (Bray-lee) as a term of endearment. She didn’t purr for almost a week after coming to the shelter. Since coming to us, though, she has learned to play with crinkle balls and run with the other kittens…and purr.

Braille will be given the best veterinary care in Tucson and will be available for adoption soon to make someone’s life a whole lot happier!

You can buy bracelets here to raise funds for Hermitage Cat Shelter during the month of April.
