Nike, a handsome orange tabby kitten, required a life saving surgery last week. The bill was $6000, leaving non-profit Furrever Friends Rescue with an empty bank account.
Students from Ambassador Christian Academy (Glassboro, NJ) will kick off a 3 day long bake sale fundraiser this weekend at the Petsmart in Deptford, NJ. Ms. Civile’s 5th Grade Class will be selling desserts that they baked from Noon until 3pm. Furrever Friends volunteers will continue the bake sale on Friday from 3pm until 9pm, on Saturday from 11am until 9pm and on Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
Ms. Civile’s class is also collecting cat food and supplies to help the rescue group.
100% of the proceeds raised at the bake sale will help to replenish the $6000 used to save Nike’s life. This will allow Furrever Friends to provide medical care and food to the additional 60 cats and kittens currently in their care.
Nike came to Furrever Friends as an 8 week old kitten with severe respiratory issues. He was unable to stand or eat on his own. After many conventional treatments and one failed surgery, a CT Scan found the problem. Nike was diagnosed with a rare but serious condition, nasopharyngeal polyps, in both ears. Only a specialist could perform the surgery to remove the polyps. Nike is still recovering at the veterinary hospital but is expected to be able to return to his foster home this next week.
Furrever Friends is a 501c3 cat rescue that is powered entirely by volunteers. Cats and kittens are cared for in private foster homes until they are adopted. Many of the cats are showcased at the Petsmart in Deptford, NJ.
