Dear Friends, Colleagues and Contributors, This year I turned 42 and most women do not tell their age. But, for me, I don’t mind. My dream came true with the creation of a 501(c) (3) that is fully dedicated to those animals for whom there are few places to turn. This birthday comes with… More >
Your support is helping us to build Purdy’s Perch, which will help facilitate wellness in the cats struggling with continual illness. This room will be a sterile and serine environment. For residents that come with severe medical or neglect and need to heal or get well.

Tommy is a great cat and should be in a home. He found his way to our doorstep. Someone just dropped him at the sanctuary door and he just sat there. Independent, a good listener and so handsome, Tommy is about 8 to 10 years o…ld. He just wants to be loved again where he can be King.
Six years ago this week one of our residents, Greta a 12 year old German short hair pointer, got her front leg got stuck in mud and had a spiral break in three places. Most animals would lose their leg. Greta only had one front leg. The first lost from a blow to the shoulder by a foot or a car and left outside to die at age 6…. We used a fantastic surgeon who created a rod with screws and wire and attached it to the bone. We then used water therapy to have her relearn to walk. She is 18 years old and since then has fetched over a thousand tennis balls and still does. The power of will.
Great news! A friend of OMS has successfully captured a freezing kitty living in a drainpipe at a construction site. The cat, a beautiful black with white tuxedo-type, is resting warmly at OMS as I type. Off to the vet in the a.m. Thank you, Carlos!
We have gotten some great comments directly to us from fans and I want to share with you.
One of our newer residents, a beautiful yet feral girl named Freckles, is resting comfortably at the vet’s, being treated for a very bad upper respiratory infection. ‘Tis the season…..we can’t wait for Purdy’s Perch to be completed, so sick animals can remain onsite while they are recuperating.
One More Smith was able to order all the material needed for the building of the cat health room, it will be called “Purdy’s Perch”. This room will help facilitate wellness in the cats struggling with continual illness. This room will be a sterile and serene environment. For residents that come with severe medical or neglect and need to heal or get well. This room will be dedicated to Purdy, a great dog who’s owner sent a significant donation in her honor.
We are very excited…….our new fencing for an expanded cat sanctuary run has shipped!
Thanks to a significant donation from a great friend to animals this run will be complete by the end of January. This has allowed for 200 hundred square feet of natural habitat to be added. This is great support and we are so grateful.
We are calling it Carina Way!
