We recently adopted a kitten that became ill shortly after we brought it home. Our local vet treated her and she made some progress, but the prescribed treatment caused other health issues. After a couple of months she hadn't gotten better.
My wife remembered a friendly van with the decal of a cat's face and the name “Frankie's Friends.” The “friends” are veterinarian Becky Morrow, her mom and a volunteer technician.
We contacted them and they agreed to look at our kitten. Dr. Morrow restored our kitten's health in a few weeks. She was once part of a veterinary practice and was the person who started the cleanup of the Tiger Ranch, the failed cat shelter. Morrow guaranteed she could heal our kitten and she did.
Frankie's Friends is nonprofit catering to people who may not be able to afford a veterinarian. If someone provides a loving home for a cat, Frankie's Friends will spay/neuter and treat a cat for a minimal fee — the cost of supplies and maintenance of their trailer.
They do this because they care about our feline friends. We made a contribution to Frankie's Friends, and if your readers care about animals, perhaps they'll do the same. The address is Frankie's Friends Cat Rescue, P.O. Box 161,Tarentum, PA 15084. You can also get information on the organization's website or Facebook page.
And if you see the Frankie's Friends vehicle, give it a beep of your horn. It will convey your appreciation for caring and loving people who quietly toil without pay and recognition.
