Marigold wandered the streets of Watsonville – lost and alone. She is an old, blind dog who is incredibly sweet. She was taken to the shelter in Santa Cruz, but no one came to look for her. After her stray period was up, the shelter contacted CAPE for help. The veterinarian at the shelter thought Marigold might be a good candidate for CAPE’s Hospice or Assisted Living Program.
Luckily, one of our hospice care volunteers offered to take her in. So transport from Santa Cruz to Grass Valley has been arranged and on Tuesday we are welcoming Marigold to CAPE.
Marigold will settle into her new home for a day or two and then be taken to one of our vets for a complete work up including and exam, bloodwork,
and dental check-up. We will make sure that Marigold is comfy and well cared for throughout her golden years. WE will keep you posted as her
Mister's guardian became very ill and was taken to a hospital where he needed ICU care. Mister remained in the apartment while his guardian's sister frantically started looking for a place for Mister to be cared for. She tried friends, family, and local shelters, but no one could take him and the shelters were all full of cats and kittens. She was becoming desperate.
Finally, a hospice worker contacted CAPE to see if we might consider an old, very overweight cat. We decided that Mister would be a perfect Office Manager for CAPE. He has a comfy couch, a huge cat tree, and enclosed outdoor cattery, and another old, friendly cat who has now become his best friend.
Mister's previous guardian died the day after Mister arrived at CAPE. It is our hope that he died knowing that his beloved cat is safe and loved at CAPE.

Mostly blind in one eye and almost deaf, covered with lumps and dry itchy skin, with foul breath, frequent seizures, arthritis and bladder control issues. You can imagine how awful she must have felt. She’d lost her spark. That’s how 15 year old Athena came into CAPE rescue. But those issues are not who Athena is anymore.
After a year in her Assisted Living home, with multiple trips to a variety of doctors, her foster mom’s dedication has turned Athena’s life around. Thanks to CAPE’s Assisted Living Program, Atena’s health issues have greatly improved. She’s got her glow back and she sparkles like a diamond.
Please know that YOU helped Athena’s heal. You helped bring her sparkle back to life. YOUR support is the reason CAPE’s Assisted Living Program can continue to change the lives of dogs who need a helping hand. For that, we cannot possibly thank you enough.
Every dollar you donate to CAPE’s Animal Medical Fund, up to $10,000, is matched until December 31st - $10=$20/ $25=$50/ $50=$100

We are so happy to announce that sweet Hank has been adopted by his amazing foster mom. We want to thank everyone who donated to help get Hank the care he needed so that he could live out his life in his comfortable new home, free from suffering.
We want to say an extra thank you to Hank’s foster (now forever) mom for giving him a second chance at the great life he deserves. ❤️🐾
We want to sincerely thank those who have donated towards Lorrie’s vet treatment and the building of her new enclosure. Her pneumonia has been treated and she’s been putting weight on her leg. She is comfortable in her new setting and is very friendly with the CAPE staff.
We have started plans for her new enclosure and will start building next week. If you’d still like to donate to Lorrie’s vet care and new building, please visit www.capeanimals.org/animal-medical-fund

Hank is 11 years old and has cancer. He was brought to the shelter where he became increasingly upset and agitated. The shelter was a very scary place for Hank - loud noises, unfamiliar smells, caring strangers going in and out of his kennel trying to figure out what to do to help him. Lots of people were advocating to save him, but the tumor on his side, infected ears, and unsettled behavior made adoption possibilities remote.
When the shelter contacted us, we flew into action. CAPE's Animal Medical Fund enables us to help animals like Hank who have very few options. The shelter veterinarians were able to remove the mass on his side and CAPE took over from there.
Hank went into a wonderful CAPE foster home last week and we are waiting, holding our breath, for the pathology report to inform us what kind of cancer he had. Please keep your fingers crossed that it's benign!
Hank went to the vet on Wednesday and we took care of the ear infections. As you can see, Hank is pretty comfy in his foster home - and now we wait. We will keep you posted about the pathology report and Hank will probably be available for adoption once we make sure he is all tuned up!
Thank you so much for giving to CAPE's Animal Medical Fund so we can continue saving lives - lives like Hank's! www.capeanimals.org/animal-medical-fund
When CAPE goes on a rescue mission or visits overcrowded shelters, we usually end up taking animals who have the poorest chance of finding homes - those who are suffering from severe medical issues that leave them with a slim chance of survival, let alone a happy ending. Medical issues are expensive and often shelters don't have the financial means or the space to provide these animals with the relief and time they so desperately need.
CAPE's Animal Medical Fund allows us to treat and care for some of the most difficult cases. To heal the injured. To end the suffering. It gives us the opportunity to provide animals with forevers when their days were being counted.
For Giving Tuesday this year, we are raising money to replenish our Animal Medical Fund so that our mission of helping animals with special needs can continue. Just like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday is one of the biggest days of the year- except it's focused on your favorite non-profits.
We are so excited to report, thanks to many generous donors, every dollar you donate towards the Animal Medical Fund for Giving Tuesday will be doubled up to $21,000.
Our goal for 2020 is to raise a total of $50,000 for the Animal Medical Fund. For this Facebook #GivingTuesday campaign, we are hoping to raise $3,000. That $3,000 will be matched, getting us closer to our overall goal of raising $50,00 for our Animal Medical Fund.
Please help us reach our goal and donate TODAY. Every dollar helps save lives in need! Thank you so much for your support. We will continue to share stories in the next few days of the most current animals that are receiving excellent care thanks to the Animal Medical Fund. Stay tuned!
Renegade's new home.
