Boo’s All Better

A photo of Boo living his best feline life Boo after his surgery and recovery - giving him the best possible feline life.

Remember Boo? This beautiful black kitten was strapped to a firework as part of a cruel 4th of July prank in 2018 and suffered some pretty severe injuries.

His tail had to be amputated, but after a few weeks in “The Cone" to keep him from removing the stitches, he received a thumbs up from the doctor.

Boo then received the rest of the love, care, and medical attention he needed neutering, microchipping, deworming, and kitty vaccinations.

Animals are truly incredible. Even after all he had been through at such an early time in his life, Boo never gave up and was very quickly swooped up by a wonderful human named Kelly at just 9 weeks old.

Boo lost his tail and his voice, Kelly tells us, “Boo is awesome. No tail no fear. He can’t meow; he squeaks!” But Boo never lost his faith in humanity.

Boo is living his best life now with Kelly and her family in South Dakota, two puppy sisters Tia & Nyla, and a cat brother, Benny. He may or may not (he definitely does 😹) have his own plate at the table each night.

All of Kelly’s rescues are from the same Program Partner on the Pine Ridge reservation. She told us, “I’m always so impressed how much care they put into each animal and the fact that they are spayed or neutered AND microchipped!”

It is because of supportive and generous friends like you that cats like Boo are able to get the care they need saving their lives and find their loving forever homes with wonderful people like Kelly.

In 2021 alone, RAR provided supplies or spay/neuter services for 2,727 dogs and cats. We also support our RAR partners and families who take in rescues with Foster Care Kits and honor a Pet Promise to help manage overpopulation on the reservations.

When you support RAR, you are a part of the miracle of an animal like Boo finding the care it needs and its forever home.
