This little girl came in to us today as a passer by had seen her on the road, motionless in the middle of a road.
They did take her home but when they realised how bad she was, they brought her into the ark.
From here she was rushed to the vets by Ark volunter Susan, as amongst other things she was found to be little more than skin and bones and was in a really bad state.
She has been seen by Moorview Veterinary Practice in Shiremoor , and we thank them for obliging a second emergency appointment within two days. The youngster has been hospitalised and we are hoping she makes it through the night. The next 48 hours will be important for her if she gets through this period then she may have a fighting chance of surviving!
Thanks to the people who found her and brought her in, if it was not for them she might not have made it so thanks very much to Linda and family
And a big thank you to Susan who rushed her up to our vets at Northumberland Park. ~admin (23/03/2017)
Marden High School have done rescued cats proud!
Students at Marden High School in North Shields, have raised a fantastic sum of money for cats rescued by Wesatgate Ark Cat Homing Centre.
They had a non uniform day, a raffle and a bake sale. The total sum raised was over £1000!
The students also collected lots of blankets, cat litter, cat food, and more for the cats at the ark.
Westgate Ark are extremely grateful to all the students, staff and parents at the Marden High School, and will be investing in four more brand new purpose built cat pens for use with newly rescued stray and feral cats.
The Ark will also be using some of this donation towards expanding our veterinary health programme to cover the micro chipping of all Ark cats in addition to the current, recently started but successful, vaccination programme for all Ark cats.
In particular, we would liker to thank Harriet Taylor, a student at Marden school who initiated and organised this event, the head of the school and teaching staff who supported her, and to Susan and Louise from the Ark who visited the school. ~admin (21/03/2017)
