Meet Yeri! She was rescued by an elder in the Yerington Paiute Tribe who found her hiding beneath her house, covered in Liquid Nails. Concerned for Yeri’s welfare, Yerington Animal Control Officer Tommy Guttierez contacted Maddie's Pet Project in Nevada. We connected Officer Guttierez with Nevada Humane Society who cleaned Yeri up and treated her infection. Yeri now looks fantastic, having gained some much needed weight. Her foster reports that Yeri enjoys being a crazy little kitten as much as she loves snuggling on the sofa. She actively seeks out love and attention and enjoys interactive play. The plan is for Yeri to be spayed next week, then returned to a good home on the reservation. #BeforeAndAfterRescue #BeforeAndAfter #cats #pets #rescue #ThanksToMaddie

Yet another rescue by Yerington Paiute Tribe animal control officer Tommy Gutierrez! Officer Gutierrez found this kitten on the reservation yesterday. It was sick, and he called Maddie's Pet Project for assistance. We met him in Silver Springs this morning, picked up the kitten and took it to Nevada Humane Society, who helped out once again! They will treat the kitten and put it up for adoption once it’s healthy. #ThanksToMaddie #catsofinstagram #cats #animalrescue #pets
Yerington Paiute Tribe animal control officer Tommy Gutierrez contacted us about a tribal elder finding a kitten under her house who was covered in Liquid Nails and failing fast. We quickly connected Tommy with Nevada Humane Society, which offered to provide care and spay the kitten. It’s a great example of Nevada animal groups working together to save every treatable cat! 😸😀 Read the whole story here: www.maddiespetprojectnevada.org/kitten-gets-help #cats #rescue #rescuecats #animalwelfare #animaloftheday #kitty
