Happy Tales

Adoption and re-homing stories with a happy ending

Did you know we have an Adoption Program?

Buddy’s Buddies Adoption Program is run on donations from our clients and the community to help stray and injured cats find a home.Simon (5)

Buddy’s Buddies was founded over 10 years ago, in the name of our late clinic cat Buddy. Buddy was a stray himself and found love at the clinic from not just the staff, but all the clients as well.

Buddy lived at Guildcrest Cat Hospital to the old age of 22. Since then many unfortunate cats have passed through our doors, to be cared for and to eventually find their forever homes.

All the cats in our Buddy Buddies Adoption Program have come to us from various situations. Some are older cats whose owners are unable to care for them for various reasons. Others, unexpected litters, or stray cats brought in by clients who want them to find a great home. Once in our care, whatever their background may be, they all go through the same process before being deemed ready to adopt out.

Each cat is thoroughly examined, vaccinated, tested. If necessary, they are treated for worms, parasites and for fleas. Blood work is done to test for Feline Aids and Leukemia and if the cat is over 4 months of age, they are spayed or neutered. Once deemed healthy and fit to go to a new home, we put them up for adoption on our website. Each applicant goes through a screening process and the adoptive parents are chosen based on the needs of each individual cat.

As we all know, there are thousands of stray and unwanted pets on the streets of our city. It takes time, money and dedication to care for these cats. We do our very best to help as many cats as we can. In order to provide the best quality of care to each of our Buddy’s Buddies cats we are only able to take cats in on a case by case basis. This depends largely on the funding we receive from the community as well as our availability to house these cats. If you have found a cat that is stray or unwanted, please contact us before bringing the cat in. If you would like to donate to this excellent cause you can stop into the clinic to visit with Buddy’s Buddies, or you can visit our go fund me page at www.gofundme.com/289nhc2s

Kitties that are available for adoption are listed on our website. We update this regularly. If you are interested in a cat for adoption please give us a call to make an appointment to meet with the available cat and fill out an adoption application.

 

June was Weight Awareness Month!

Weight Awareness Month
At the Guildcrest Cat Hospital, we believe that obesity plays a major role in feline illness! This is why we dedicate an entire month to making sure we spread awareness and educate our clients to the best of our abilities with the latest data and trending diet plans.  And that’s where you come in! If you are interested in helping your cat reach his/her goal weight, all you have to do is book a free weight consultation, bring your pal along and we will take it from there!

Why is weight awareness important?
Weight awareness is important for your cat because obesity is a major cause of the following illnesses in cats:
  • Diabetes
  • Fatty Liver Disease
  • Heart Failure
  • Arthritis
  • Urinary Tract Infections
  • Shorter Life Expectancy
