Calliope Rescue asks for help for senior cat

Tao needs your help!

Calliope Rescue, Inc., a 501 c 3 animal rescue organization is asking for your help.  We are an all-volunteer organization, primarily for cats, operating through a small network of foster homes to rescue, rehabilitate and find forever homes for abandoned, neglected and homeless animals.

Tao is an 11 year old lap cat who is so kind and gentle.  All he wants to do is be loved, petted and cherished.  It is always sad when a senior animal loses their home, but especially so when the cat is as love-starved as Tao.  He recently found himself in a neglected situation, and we were able to step in and bring him into our rescue.  He was fully vetted and received a clean bill of health earlier this month.  But Wednesday night Tao was rushed to Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston with a life threatening urinary blockage.  He received emergency surgery and is undergoing a battery of tests to determine and treat his condition.  His preliminary bills have risen to $2,000, with more expenses likely.

Donations of any amount will go directly to his care.  We are a small rescue group with a handful of volunteers.  These expenses exceed our capabilities, but Tao will continue to receive the excellent veterinary care at Angell Animal Medical Center that he deserves.

To make a donation or learn more go to www.callioperescue.org.
