Fosters Needed – A Call for Help with Temporary Homes

SNAP needs fosters! We are desperate for short-term temporary homes for our pets. Please consider volunteering to help take care of our animals until we can find them forever homes. Many of these are temporary situations for no longer than a month. Sometimes just a couple of weeks. Molly especially needs a foster home for the month where she can recuperate from her surgery. Her story is remarkable and she really needs a foster home. We have many pairs of lovely teenagers that need temporary fosters besides molly but her story is exceptional both as a lovely cat in need of adoption and for her immediate need of a foster home for the month to recuperate from her surgery. Please let us know if you can help! See more about Molly and her amazing story here. Please contact us at snap@comcast.net. You can also apply online here. SNAP-2 IT (Spay Neuter Assistance Program) is an Atlanta-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and we rely solely on donations and volunteers to continue our work. While you may not be able to provide a donation, your time is just as valuable to us. We need volunteers (over 18, please!). SNAP-2 IT will provide the food and litter and you provide the love and care. The time frame for fostering depends on the age of the animal you are helping. SNAP-2 IT works with you according to your schedule and time available to donate. Most commitments are for a minimum of two weeks. Current as of 1-19-2014....

ADOPTED! Molly Girl Surgery Successful

UPDATE: Molly is doing well after her surgery Thursday, January 16. The doctors removed a very large polyp in neck/nose area. While she recuperates, Molly needs a foster that is NON SMOKING and pretty dust free, she will be breathing for like the first time and it could be irritating to her. A few other cats (less than 4) in house will be okay but nothing more. She needs about a month to recover with minor meds (eye gel). Please email us at snap@comcast.net if you can help. PREVIOUSLY: Thank’s to all of you who donated to support Molly’s surgery. Thanks to your generous donations, SNAP has been able to schedule Molly’s surgery for January 16th. We look forward to her speedy recovery and a long an happy life… SNAP-2 IT would like for you to meet Molly. She came to SNAP this past summer in a litter of kittens. She is a very sweet, lovable girl and around 12 weeks of age she appeared to come down with URI (upper respiratory) or what is commonly known as a cold. She was treated and would do well for a few days after treatment and then only to come back to having difficulty breathing and eating at the same time. She is soon to be a year old and her symptoms are getting more severe. Molly was referred to and has been seen at UGA and they have determined that she has a congenital diseases causing partial or complete blockage of her nasal passages. Without the life saving surgery that UGA can perform, Molly will soon start struggling more to breath, have collapsing episodes and turn blue and die. Molly’s foster mom says she is the most social of cats. She greets everyone that comes over, loves to sit with you, never meets a stranger, not even a new cat coming over is a stranger to her. Molly deserves the best chance life has to offer and you can help make that possible today by making a tax deductable donation to give her a chance at a normal life with a loving family to call all her own. The quote from UGA is $1200.00. Molly is really one lucky girl because she already is half way there in getting this live saving surgery. For every dollar you donate, her sponsor will MATCH your donation. Please help today and let’s get Molly well so she can find a lifelong family of her own. Click here for a direct link to Molly’s fundraiser. All of us at SNAP were sure that Molly, the tiny tortie who was ready to find her home earlier this year, would be adopted very quickly. Full of personality, loving and playful, we even thought that her snoring was sort of cute. You can see our original postings about Molly here. But then, the realization hit that she wasn’t snoring at all. Molly was struggling to breathe. SNAP pulled Molly from the adoption pool and she returned to live with her foster family. Once the condition was identified, there was a small chance that young Molly might outgrow it. Now pushing a year old, SNAP is sorry to report that Molly’s condition has worsened – not gotten better. Please check out Molly’s story and the videos. We feel sure that you’ll think she’s every bit as special as we do. Please consider making an end of year donation – tax deductible, as always with SNAP – to help this loving tortie by giving her the breath of life. If you have questions about Molly or the procedure, please...
