Tina the cat lives a good life at Mystery’s Haven, a rescue in Michigan dedicated to bettering the lives of felines in need. While this tabby cat knows security and comfort now, her tale of rescue is a tough one, illustrating why cats need our help so much. But the dedicated rescue staff and volunteers couldn’t get out there and do the saving without your help.

When you shop with iHeartCats, every single purchase funds donations for felines in need. Whether you purchase a cute cat shirt for yourself or supplements for your cat, that cart full of goodies gives compassion. Through our partnership with Greater Good Charities, we ensure shelter cats receive food and other necessities while waiting for their forever home.

Tough Start to Thriving in Sanctuary

To date, the GOODS Program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues nationwide. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals who each have a story to share. This is Tina’s tale, and she wants you to know how much she appreciates your help.

Mystery’s Haven shared that Tina was found behind an EMS building in active labor. She’d already given birth to one kitten who had passed away, and another was on the way. Complicating the matter, “Tina appeared to have been hit by a car and wasn’t moving around much at all.”

Her road to recovery was a difficult one. But despite her ordeal, Tina is now thriving as a resident of Mystery’s Haven, the rescue revealing, “she uses the litter box exclusively now, navigates stairs and even goes in and out of the enclosed catio.”

“She loves her kitty friends, and she LOVES to eat!”

The food from the GOODS Program ensured this tough tabby had plenty to fill her tummy as she recovered and beyond. For Tina, a full bowl means happiness. She and Mystery’s Haven just can’t thank all the kind souls involved enough for giving her a chance to heal and find joy.

“Thanks so much to #meowmix and #greatergoodcharities we have plenty of yummy food to keep Tina and the other Sanctuary cats with full bellies always!”

And because there are always cats who need our help, the mission continues. So, get to shopping and keep saving kitty lives!
