Cat Care Society Kitten, “Marvell,” Serves As Marvelous Success Story For The Lakewood-Based Cat Shelter And Medical Team
Kitty Care Society launched its Fall Fundraising campaign, focusing on the special success story of the 10-week-old abandoned kitten, fondly named Marvell by CCS staffers. Marvell was brought to the cat care Society shelter in July by a woman who had saved him from a few little boys seriously torturing the powerless kitten. Kitty Care Society (CCS) lately launched its Fall Fundraising direct response campaign, targeting the success story of the 10-week-old abandoned kitten, fondly named Marvell by CCS staffers after the Colorado Rapid’s player Marvell Wynne.
The announcement is formed by Clyde Dawson, CCS Interim Executive Director, who says : “Marvell was brought to our shelter in July by a girl who had saved him from 1 or 2 little boys seriously torturing this defenseless kitten. The boys were swinging the kitten by its tail and lighting the tips of his ears and whiskers on fire.” Marvell is one kitten who was in a position to have another opportunity at life because of the difficult work of the medical team at CCS. “The staff, volunteers, and Board of Directors have been intensely happy with being able to go the additional mile for cats and kittens in our shelter by providing extensive medical care. This care enables the cats to have another chance at a superb life. Unfortunately, unlike our shelter, in other animal shelters, cats with serious medical issues are euthanized because of the further time and medical costs to save one animal’s life,” Dawson said. When the kitten appeared at CCS in July, the medical team swiftly went to work.
During the kitten’s primary examination, the CCS vet, Doctor. Rooks, discovered he had burns, lung contusions, internal bruising, internal bleeding and severe head stress, which caused bleeding in his eyes. The staff spent one or two hours stabilizing the kitten. Marvell then went home with CCS ‘ Acknowledgments and Feline Care Boss for 24 hour hospital treatment.
CCS also put out a media plea, with coverage on a few of the area TV stations and daily newspaper, to find the criminals but without success.

We are pleased with his quick recovery and adoption by his wonderful new mom. Our adoption staff was able to educate Marvell’s new mom about his injuries ; she assured us that she would be in a position to give him the medical attention he could need in the future . Lately, Marvell’s new mom called to assert he's totally happy and healthy in his new ‘forever ‘ home.” About the cat care Society The CCS, founded in 1981 by Linda East, DVM and Lynn Rowe, is a non-profitable organization established to boost the quality of life for homeless, hurt and abused cats in the Denver metropolitan area. The Society’s goals are : * To sponsor academic programs that plug responsible pet possession, humane treatment of all animals, and dumping pet overpopulation ; * To cover cats in a good, cage free environment and to find compatible and responsible families for each pussy ; * To provide community outreach programs that improve the quality of life for cats and folk ; * To be a friend to all cats.
In addition to money donations, CCS wants in-kind donations of these supplies : clay and clump litter, as the shelter uses over 600 pounds of litter each month and can use both types. Inexpensive litter is fine ; the Wal-Mart brand in the red bag is the least expensive. In addition, CCS could use the following items : bleach, disposable hand towels, 5-inch paper plates, baby food (turkey and chicken), canned moggy food (Whiskas, Friskies, Fancy Feast — preferably no fish flavors), dry pussy food (Science Diet, Iams Original), Purina Kitten Chow, hooded kitty beds, and rubbish bags. The CCS is supported by a number of faithful members and contributors, without whom the shelter could not operate.
CCS receives no executive funding. Additionally, CCS volunteers help with many fundraising activities each year such as Tails of the Painted Cats, book sales, Meow Mart, Cajun’s Closet Thrift Store, the vacation present and bake sale and masses more.
