Unfortunately one of Action Volunteers for Animals' very young cats was recently diagnosed with Feline Leukemia. Onyx had once been returned by an adopter with the excuse that she was just "too active". Currently with our overcrowded foster home situations there is no place to put her except in a cage.....and this is no place for an affectionate, active cat.
If there is anyone out there who has a Fleuk cat who needs company (Onyx is very used to living with other cats) or has had a Fleuk cat that has passed away, please don't let your expertise be wasted! .....Even if you have never had a Fleuk cat before but deem yourself good at medicating and caring for sick cats and you currently have no other pets please consider fostering her. Cats with Feline Leukemia can live a very long time. I know of one that was diagnosed 8 years ago and is still alive so this could be a long term and rewarding venture.
AVA will be paying for the veterinary care with a few restrictions to be discussed.
AVA became a registered charity in . Our funding comes from donations, membership fees, garage sales, and our annual Bazaar which is held each November. AVA receives no government funding, preferring to maintain its independence.
Action Volunteers for Animals' goals are to:
© Control stray and feral animal overpopulation particularly that of feral cat colonies. We trap, sterilize and release feral cats back into their original habitats, monitor their health and feed them on a regular basis. Cats deemed adoptable i.e. tame, are entered into our adoption program. Cats too ill to be released or adopted are cared for within our foster care system.
© Reduce animal suffering
© Discourage animal cruelty
© Educate the public, especially children, about animal welfare.
