A big thank you to Shellene in Whylie, TX for adopting Heidi.

Meet Annie Oakley -- Monday July 6th, 2009

ADOPTED 9/8/2009!! Annie’s 4th of July weekend didn’t start too well. Someone shot this little 4 week old blue point with a BB gun. She suffered in the heat, was hungry, and has now a slight infection in addition to the hole in her side. The good news is the Austin Siamese Rescue was able to take her in, give her good care immediately, and has found a temporary foster for her until she’s old enough to be adopted (and have the BB removed which is lodged in her chest). But, the news isn’t going to be good for other cats and kittens. Some will be euthanized; others will continue to suffer in the streets either from injury or just being lost. ASR is over flowing. We need temporary fosters (4-8 weeks) and as well as those who might commit for longer periods. If you are able to help ASR, please let us know. There are cats at Town Lake Animal Center right now that need rescue and ASR simply doesn’t have the space. If you have questions contact or call 512-261-6395. If fostering isn’t your thing, adoptions also open up space for more kittens and cats or pass this forward to a fellow animal lover who might be interested. Thank you Austin Siamese Rescue (Donations are very welcome and needed through PayPal)
