In November of 2010, Suzie was found on the side of the road after being hit by a car. Suzie was originally brought into our shelter to be euthanized. Instead of euthanizing a special needs cat; we were able to give her the treatment she needs. Suzie is a paraplegic cat, meaning she will never regain movement in her hind legs; however she gets around just fine!
Suzie does not let her disability control her, she can climb up onto chairs and glide around the room gracefully. Suzie lives a comfortable, pain-free life here at our shelter. She has become our resident greeter and shelter mascot!
