Austin Siamese Rescue is dedicated to rescuing cats in distress and finding them great homes once they are ready for adoption. Our cats are cared for in individual foster homes until placement. There are typically between 100-125 cats and kittens available for adoption through our organization at any given time. Sometimes (like kitten season), there are even more.
Austin Siamese Rescue cats come from a variety of backgrounds. Some faced death at a shelter, while others came from abusive and neglectful households. Still others were treasured companions of guardians who could no longer care for them. What they all have in common is the need for a forever home, where they can live their lives as the happy, pampered cats they all deserve to be.
Some of the types of care funded through this memorial include:
Veterinary Lab Work, Surgery
X-rays, Ultrasounds, Specialty care
Prescription Drugs for asthma diabetes, thyroid, kidney, and other chronic cat diseases
Dental cleanings, extractions (particularly necessary for older cats in rescue)
Long-term wound or surgical rehabilitation care
Other extraordinary veterinary expenses that exceed the norm
Impact StatementSince our founding, we have rescued and re-homed over 1000 cats and kittens. In this time, we have also provided needed medical service, as well as spay and neutering for countless others. We have spent tens of thousands of dollars on these medical services, as well as tens of thousands of dollars for food, shelter and other needed materials in order to get our cats ready for their forever homes. During 2013 alone, we spent $26,399.53 on extraordinary medical expenses (beyond routine expenses) for 56 cats, and $24,352.06 on routine medical expenses.
