Do you know me?

I am a ten-year-old calico girl who was dumped in a dog run in the middle the night at Dogs & Cats Forever’s main shelter in Fort Pierce.

That’s not my biggest problem.

You see, I can’t walk on my back legs, and because my owner didn’t leave a note or any other explanation with me, the folks at the shelter don’t know how to help me.
They have already taken me to the vet twice and had x-rays and bloodwork performed but the doctors don’t know why I can’t walk. The vet suggested that next I go to a neurologist who could possibly tell them what is wrong with me.

I eat well and I can drag myself to the litter box, (but I sometimes make a mess). I can even crawl a little on my back knees. The vets want to give me more time to get better, but they don’t know anything about my medical history.

The folks at the shelter don’t care who my owners used to be. They don’t want anything from them except the truth about what happened to me and how long I have been unable to walk.

The shelter folks named me Kalinda. I love to be petted, and I purr a lot. Also, I’m declawed on my front feet.

If you know my story, please let the shelter know at 772-489-5454 or 772-216-4109. You don’t have to say who you are-just tell them about me.

The shelter is starting a medical fund for me if I can be helped. If you would like to donate to that fund, please contact the shelter at 772_489-5454 or mail donations to Dogs & Cats Forever, 4600 Selvitz Rd, Fort Pierce, FL 34981



Scully is a ten year old male Poodle. He is very spunky and playful. Scully does have cataracts in each eye but that doesn’t seem to slow him down at all. If you are looking for a new forever friend and enjoy smaller Poodles then Scully may be the dog for you. Stop by the shelter during normal business hours and say hello. Scully would love to meet you.



Update: Ava is in foster care.

Ava is a ten year old female Yorkie. She was abandoned and left behind by her owners who didn’t take her when they left town. Ava has numerous small mammary tumors that so far haven’t mestastesized and attached to her lungs. Due to her age and number of tumors she isn’t a candidate for surgery to remove the tumors. Ava is a quiet dog and very lovable. She is looking for a permeant foster home. Ava could conceivably be around another year or five no one can be sure. All we can do is keep her comfortable. If you would like to help us give this sweet girl a loving comfortable home for her last years stop by or call the shelter and meet Ava. She still has much more love to give someone and she truly deserves a forever home.

Update: Bessy is in foster care.

Bessy was a stray found on the side of the road. Bessy is a Basset Hound and looks to be about ten years old. She is very laid back and gets along with other like sized dogs. If your looking a rather low maintenance dog that loves to sleep, Bessy may be a dog for you. How can you not love those big soft floppy ears and droopy eyes? Bessy deservers a forever home. Bessy1
