Success Story: She Was Given a 10% Chance of Surviving… But She Did!

Your purchases from matter! Here’s just another example of how together we’re making a difference!

Miss Button was brought into Hands Helping Paws (HHP) rescue after a local animal welfare shelter realized further help was required. This poor girl needed immediate medical care due to what was believed to be a dog attack. She had severe puncture wounds on her back, stomach, and back end.

Thanks to Rescue Bank donations, and financial support from iHeartCats customers, HHP was able to cover the high cost of surgery and medical care without having to worry about providing food and shelter. Button had two emergency surgeries, and her surgeon gave her a 10% chance of surviving.

Button beat those odds, and a year later is doing great! She is highly loved, and is one of HPP’s cat ambassadors. She now spends her days going to schools to educate kids about the importance of pet responsibility.
