Meet Miss Maple
Our tri-paw cat
Capt Jack is a stray who was brought to the OC shelter at 11 weeks old, covered in oil, emaciated, and with a severe eye infection. The Ark rescued Capt Jack, got him into a foster home, cleaned up and treated his eye infection. He recently found a wonderful forever home with two new best friends, Belgian Melanois who love their new buddy. What a difference between Capt Jack’s before and current pictures! Capt. Jack is the fifth kitten with this virulent eye infection that The Ark has saved in the past few months and we anticipate more soon.
The Ark pulled Maple from the County shelter as this wonderful 4 year old (rare) female orange tabby who likes other cats and has a loving personality was overlooked for over at month due to being missing one hind paw. It doesn't impact her much at all and she gets around just fine. Maple has found that special home for such a special cat!
