Rosie, a four year old calico cat, has had a very rough past few weeks to say the least. About a month ago, a Good Samaritan rescued Rosie after discovering her huddled up against a car engine on a freezing night in Queens. Sadly, Rosie suffered serious burns and bleeding to her right, back foot resulting from the heat of the engine.
Rosie’s rescuer brought her to the Bideawee Animal Shelter in Manhattan, where veterinarians will perform surgery to repair the damage in her foot. Unfortunately, this requires Rosie’s burned foot to be amputated and will need several months of care for her wounds after her surgery, to ensure recovery. Bideawee relies solely on donations and private funding and is seeking donations of any amount to contribute to the cost of Rosie’s surgery.
Bideawee, 410 East 38th St., (212) 532-6395. The shelter is open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from Noon until 7 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
