Hello Friends and Supporters,
In 2019, we cared for 158 animals at Starlight Outreach and Rescue. This year we're on track to help many more. To date, we've rescued 126 animals and there's still 4.5 months left in the year. I wanted to share just a few of their stories so you'll know more about the animals you've helped save.
Panda and Pandita came to our attention when a family found Panda chained to a tree without food or water in the yard of a next-door neighbor who had moved out of the home, leaving Panda behind. They were asking for help to give Pandita, the puppy, a home, but we couldn't leave Panda behind when we met her. Despite the family's care, she was emaciated and about 20lbs underweight. We fattened her up and cared for her and her puppy. Both have found wonderful homes!
Buddy was pulled from an animal control facility that likely would have euthanized him because he was fearful and could be snappy when scared. After working with him for several months, we found just the right adopter for him and he's happily living in Austin. Titus was brought to our attention by a citizen who found him with a badly wounded leg that had been "degloved" and left without any skin. We cared for Titus for several months and he spent weeks in the veterinary hospital receiving care for his wounds. When he finally recovered, he was adopted by a sweet lady who was willing to work with his shyness (he'd been through a lot and was very wary of new situations) and now he's a beloved family member!
All these animals and all the others we've been able to help despite all the challenges of 2020 have been because of the support of people like you.
Thank you for caring for the helpless animals of this world. We couldn't do what we do without you!
