Stormy is a precious long haired kitty and serves as the loving companion to her mama who adores her. Sadly, Stormy developed pyometra, a deadly and miserable infection of the uterus that required emergency surgery. Sadly, Stormy's mama could not afford the vet procedure. She lives on social security disability has had back surgery that lead to a triple bypass and the discovery of lung cancer which she has been fighting for several years. She maxed out her Care Credit trying to help Stormy and was desperate to save her best friend. Thankfully, ART was able to raise the funds needed to save Stormy's life. ART is the only organization in our region whose primary purpose is to help families keep their pets. In many cases, without ART's intervention, the pets would likely end up being euthanized.

• Spay/Neuter - Reducing the number of homeless animals by preventing unwanted births
