Meet Sasha and Tigeress

Meet Sasha and Tigeress

Sasha came to FOPAS with three kittens that she had given birth to at the animal control facility in Perry. Sasha was very skinny and her kittens where tiny and it was obvious that she didn't get the nutrition she needed during pregnancy. One of her kittens she gave birth to four, had passed away shortly after birth. The three remaining kittens come to FOPAS. Sasha was given Science Diet Urgent Care pate cat food. Its very expensive but it is very high in nutrients and calories.  She and her kittens where beginning to gain weight. Then one kitten stopped nursing, and got diarrhea and passed away. This is common with kittens born to a feral or street cat that cannot get the nutrients she needs to keep herself and her kittens healthy.

FOPAS Could Be Moving, The Long Road Ahead To Keep The Shelter Afloat

We have received letter from the city of Perry, stating that we can no longer have the dogs or the dog pens behind the shelter, without the ability to have the dogs outside we cannot keep dogs at our facility. Its cruel to keep the dogs in crates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week with some potty breaks on leashes.  FOPAS will not be taking any animals until this issue is resolved.
