I held her aloft- one hand supporting her front legs and the other holding her tiny haunches. She turned and looked at me with complete trust. I was smitten. This little black and white kitten that I named Sashay had my heart from that moment. She and her brother, another tuxedo, were in a little room at the SPCA set aside for meeting prospective pets. But there had been no doubt that these little cats were going home with me. I was excited about having these fur people as family members. Raised in a dog-only home and then living places where pets weren’t allowed had postponed this day for a long time. Now my husband Mark and I could have “children” to love and spoil. We named the boy Saki after my favorite short story writer and Sashay Sashay because Mark thought that was a good cat name. Sashay fit her name perfectly. She took over the house immediately, putting her brother and us in our appropriate places. Brother was much bigger but she was the quick and fearless. She claimed my lap and if Saki tried to sneak up, she bit his butt and he got the idea. How could one cat have so many endearing habits and quirks?
For years I kept my bedroom door closed so I could have one area dander-free. I was afraid my minor cat allergies would worsen if I didn’t. Sashay put up with that until one day when she didn’t. She scratched and meowed and butted her head against the door.
Who cared about allergies?
She jumped on the bed and surveyed her new kingdom. She had a dozen darling ways to snuggle. She would pick which ones she would use for that night. I was happy regardless. I could always, always count on her love and attention and she could count on mine.
Then she got sick- really sick. We couldn’t afford to begin to try the treatments that could help her.
Then a miracle happened and Dr. Marcus, our vet, told me about Dyana Klein and Dr. Fradkin. They had established an foundation to help people and kitties like us. Max’s Helping Paws made it possible for Sashay to receive extensive and comprehensive treatment. I had her for five more weeks because of the indescribable generosity of Dr. Marcus and Max’s Helping Paws. Most of my tears are sad now excep
"Thank you so much to Max’s Helping Paws and the doctors/staff at Pet Specialists for helping to save Kaisah’s broken leg. One week before I was scheduled to have spinal fusion surgery, Kaisah broke her leg and required a very expensive repair. I was unable to afford the cost as I was not working at the time due to my injury. Max’s Helping Paws made it possible for Kaisah to receive the care she needed. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts!
Ginger is a two-year-old, high energy and precocious family pet who born in Mexicali and taken in last year by her current owner when her previous owner tragically passed away from cancer at 35. Ginger loves to go running on the beach, do tricks, and play with her toys. She is also a regular visitor to residents at the Carmel Hills Care Center. Ginger joins her dad regularly on his runs to various job sites. As a young pup with lots of energy, Ginger saw a cat across the street and immediately leapt towards it. As soon as she took off into the street, her tiny body was hit by a car, leaving one of her hind legs so badly broken and mangled that an immediate amputation was needed in order to mitigate her pain and save her life.
This circumstance proved it really does “take a village.” Ginger’s dad, a client of Marina veterinary hospital for two decades, reached out first to Marina for assistance. With a good prognosis from Marina Pet Hospital, Max’s Helping Paws, Peace of Mind Dog Rescue and Animal Welfare Assistance Group, combined financial support to help subsidize the costs of surgery, as Ginger’s father was experiencing severe financial hardship. After speaking with multiple veterinary practices, none of which were able to provide immediate surgery, Pet Specialists of Monterey dove in to help, and performed Ginger’s life-saving amputation later that same evening.
Within a week of Ginger’s injury, she was back to chasing birds and doing what she loved most- having three legs was not about to slow this puppy down! Without the funds provided to help pay the cost of surgery, Ginger’s dad would have been forced to euthanize Ginger to keep her from suffering. Mr. Rodriguez said, “I am ever so grateful that everyone came together for one of god’s creatures, it just means so much.” Ginger’s Dad was kind enough to give us a review on GreatNonProfits.com “Thank God for Max’s Helping Paws. They helped fill a gap that only the hand of god could accomplish. After the tragedy of ginger a 1.5 yr old female Chihuahua.
