Mya was found as a stray in the summer of 2014, and brought to Dogs & Cats Forever No-Kill Shelter in Fort Pierce, FL. She had mange and was put on several medications by a veterinarian, but sadly, she had an allergic reaction to her medications,and developed an autoimmune response to her meds. She has been to specialists in Stuart, West Palm Beach, and Gainesville, at the University of Florida. She is slowly getting better but has run up more than $5,000.00 in vet bills and medication costs. Her vets say that it could take more than a year for her to recover fully. Mya is only a year old and has a wonderful personality despite being in and out of clinics and given medicine almost nonstop.
Mya needs veterinary care for many months to come, and while Dogs & Cats Forever is currently responsible for her care, we are a private animal shelter which receives no financial assistance from local government, and we need help to pay her bills. Please help Mya get better so she can one day find a forever home.

YOU CANNOT CATCH FIV FROM YOUR CAT!
Boogie is friendly six-month old who was found on his own outside. When we tested him, we found that he was positive for FIV,also called feline AIDS.
Cats with FIV can have normal life spans if kept indoors, so what this means for Boogie is that if he is not adopted, he will spend the next 10-15 years at the shelter.
He is not contagious to people, or dogs and he is only contagious to other cats if he fights with them or bites them. He is not contagious to other FIV positive cats.
Boogie needs a real home. Please give him a chance
