Soon after Tabby was born, it was determined that she has a cleft palate. The people who had Tabby asked a local veterinarian to euthanize her. Luckily, it was CAPE's wonderful vet and she refused to do it! Instead, the vet cared for Tabby for over a year until she was sure that Tabby could eat and drink without problems. Once she knew that Tabby could have a full life ahead of her, she contacted CAPE.
Tabby now lives with a herd of goats, Rootie the pig, and Bogart the turkey at the CAPE Animal Sanctuary. They are a menagerie of characters who share the barnyard pasture. It is a beautiful sight to behold - an inter-species family of friends - all with special needs.
“"Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr
