Animal rescue is, without a doubt, rewarding work, but that doesn't mean it's without its challenges. In fact, it's probably one of the most challenging careers out there. It takes a lot of emotional strength to witness the horrible conditions some animals are in, and it takes tons of endurance to help coach them back to their best selves before they find a forever home.
Of course, working with animals means that you get to see most of them living their very best lives after they've been rescued. The folks who run a New Jersey animal sanctuary called Uncle Neil's Home know this firsthand, because they get to be a part of animals' rescue every step of the way.
They recently assisted with a recovery of 26 survivors from a feral cat colony, and there's only 5 of them still looking for homes. Two of them--Peanut the tuxedo cat and Nala the tortoiseshell--are just too cute to resist!
What sweet kitties! It breaks our hearts to think of the horrid conditions the sick, homeless cats were living in, and that some of their friends passed away before help came. This is just another reason why it's so important to spay and neuter cats, especially if they spend time roaming outside. Fewer cats born on the streets means fewer living in filthy, disease-ridden areas.
Fortunately for this cat colony, though--many of them were rescued by @uncleneilshome! As they explained in the video's description, donations and purchases from the sanctuary's Amazon wishlist have allowed them to give the kitties, "their first ever cat beds, blankets, shelter, cat toys, medical care, litter and more." That's amazing!
Speaking of amazing, this animal rescue isn't just focused on cats. They have many farm animals at their rescue, including
- and cats!
This nonprofit animal rescue is run entirely on donations, though there are many other ways you can help their animals--including sponsorship. Visit their website to learn more!
