ValentineARF rescued a 13-week-old kitten from the Martinez shelter in need of medical care and TLC. She had been abandoned at the Concord BART station, where a Good Samaritan found her in a cardboard box. She had minor wounds, but her ears were badly damaged, possibly burned by a chemical or other incendiary agent. They were so stiff, we feared they would break off! Fortunately this amazing kitten could still hear, and was remarkably affectionate, purring like a diesel and engaging anyone willing to pet her.

Named Valentine because of her outpouring of love, this sweetie was actually adopted around the love holiday, following her recovery with a foster home. Now in a good home with an adopter who adores her, the Hope Fund helped this remarkable kitten was to heal and find a caring family for her to return the love.

OliciaSweet Olivia was at a public shelter for quite some time suffering from a painful medical condition they were unfortunately unable to treat. Upon her arrival at ARF, and thanks to The Hope Fund, Olivia finally had major surgery on her knee to repair a torn cruciate ligament. Olivia recuperated in foster care for two weeks after surgery, however she was not to exercise at all for two more months. Early in her recovery, this happy go lucky and fun loving 3-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix couldn’t go up or down stairs, run, jump, or play. As she got better, she still needed someone to make sure she didn’t overdo her activities (especially as she loves car rides and playing with other dogs) and so needed to find a patient family to help her heal.

Thanks to the Hope Fund, Olivia’s wish came true when she joined a new family during the Holiday season. She is now fully healed, loving and friendly, and has brought absolute joy to her new family.

If you want to help gentle dogs and cats, like Olivia or Valentine and the many others who are rescued by the ARF rescue team, but need extraordinary medical care, please make a tax-deductible gift to the Hope Fund.
