Treasured Friends is a no-kill, non-profit animal rescue group dedicated to care and placement of abandonded/unwanted pets. Strictly foster based, our volunteers provide food, shelter, care, and compassion to our furry friends until they find a loving home. Our mission is to educate the public on the importance of spaying/neutering pets to avoid pet overpopulation, and find a warm, safe place for every adoptable dog or cat to call their forever home.

Meet Bobbie - a lovely dark tortoiseshell lady with enchanting green eyes. The big beige sticks you see to the left of the picture are her hind legs - - they're both in casts.
Remember those frigid frozen days we had? That was when Bobbie was hit by a car sustaining 3 breaks in her tiny legs. She was left to die in the middle of the road in -14 degree temps. Lucky for her a kind animal lover happened to pass by and noticed her. He scooped up the almost frozen little waif and attempted to get her medical care, but no vet would even look at scared, shivering Bobbie without a size-able deposit.
Luckily for precious Bobbie her rescuer remembered a conversation at a volleyball game with a Treasured Friends volunteer and started making phone calls. Within a few hours Bobbie was warm and dry and set up to repair the breaks in her legs. The repair was completed successfully but now begins the long road to recovery. Bobbie cannot get up to reach her food or use the litter box so she is dependent upon human help. She accepts this help with loud purrs and head rubs and seems to understand she needs to be quiet and still for the next 4 to 6 weeks. To help her gain more independence as she heals Treasured Friends would like to build her a cart of sorts to help her get around for a short time each day. If you can help with this or any part of her astronomical medical bills please contact us or click the donate button above to help with Bobbi's care!!
