FROM THE FACEBOOK POST :- 28 December 2013 – UPDATE: JORDEN WAS RESCUED! The plan for Jorden came together so quickly – I just posted him yesterday! It’s amazing how well everyone worked together. Thank you to Jeri Howard for transporting, Acahosp for vetting and Kathryn Wysong for fostering Jorden. Thanks to Bridget Hagaman-Alves for letting me know about Jorden…without her we would have never known he needed help. Kathryn, please let us know how Jorden is doing. Fingers crossed he will be OK for years to come. Be well and happy life, Jorden! WOO HOO!!
Pals, we are shocked rigid with disbelief by this report we came across on Facebook and while it falls outside our usual parameters for appeals (we don’t usually include shelters/rescues) we feel compelled to include it here as we are told that this is one of the worst kill shelters in the US. Please, as a gift to Jorden, share this and let’s help find this old lad a home.
We will update the post as soon as we have any news.

THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS MY FRIEND WAS AT CASTAIC SHELTER. In the parking lot she met a woman who was about to dump this sweet 16-year-old cat. The woman said he has problems with his kidneys and she couldn’t take care of him anymore. My friend suggested she take him to her own vet to be euthanized with her there to hold him, but she said she couldn’t do that and she brings all her animals to the shelter to be killed. Now this poor cat is stuck scared and alone in a cage waiting to die a sad, lonely, painful death at the shelter. Is there anyone who will adopt Jorden and either keep him comfortable until it’s his time or take him to your vet and hold him and let him feel loved at the end? This is URGENT.
