A few months ago someone found this little fellow wandering alone and turned him over to Happy Home Animal Sanctuary. He is 10+ years old. We named him Bear. When he came to us, among other problems, he had mange so badly that it had caused open wounds.
With the proper nutrition, veterinary care, and love, […]
A couple of days ago I promised pictures of the ninth and final kitten in the “foamed” litter, “Phoebe“. Trapped last week, she was fortunate enough to have avoided being foamed. She is very beautiful, but very shy. She doesn’t interact with the other kittens very much, prefering to sit on the cat condo.

Now that we have the serious stuff out of the way, I want to talk about feeding time. The kittens receive a mixture of wet and dry food. As soon as the first can is opened, the meowing begins. We carefully spread the wet food around the edge of a large dish, mixing in a […]
We had some good news after the rescued kittens’ vet visit… they were all deemed healthy enough for their first vaccination.

Though these crimes seem incredibly heinous and unbelievable, the […]
On June 1, 2008, volunteers of Happy Home Animal Sanctuary were notified of a serious situation at a Las Vegas apartment complex. When the volunteers arrived, what they found was horrifying. Six young kittens had been sealed into a block wall using urethane foam, a type of insulation that hardens around anything it touches.
The volunteers […]
