Re: “The truth about the Goathouse Refuge

The cat we adopted from the Goathouse Refuge last year has had a lot of health problems. We are still working on getting her healthy - she had worms, giardia, ear mites, and infections caused by long-term infestation of the parasites. My vet said that these are highly contagious diseases and are typically seen in cats who came from an over-crowded neglectful environment.

The adoption paperwork they gave me shows that she was never treated for any of these diseases while at the Goathouse, nor was she ever examined by a vet. It makes me so sad to think about her suffering in silence during her time there.

I think we can all agree that every rescue organization should provide health care to their animals and that includes wellness exams by vets to detect any problems before they become chronic. No organization should have more animals than they can afford to provide quality health care to.
