Kim's Nurturing Nest Animal Sanctuary
"Rescued is our favorite breed..."
ABOUT THE SANCTUARY
Here at Kim’s Nurturing Nest Animal Sanctuary we strive to give every domestic/farm animal the best possible life. We respect where they are at when they arrive at our sanctuary. Some are abandoned, abused, injured, elderly or born with an abnormality. We have always had a particular soft spot for the special needs animals and will do everything we can to make their lives fulfilled.
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
Some of our Impact
A current priority here at the Sanctuary is spaying and neutering kittens and cats, making sure they receive all their shots and then become socialized so they can find their forever homes. A large portion of this involves fostering the kittens until spaying and neutering is possible. There are many cats not able to be socialized, so we also focus on "TNR" (Trapping, Neutering, and Releasing) the cats so although they are feral, they can still receive proper treatment. Recently the Sanctuary took part in a large mobile vet clinic day at Jameson Humane and spayed and neutered 10 cats.
In addition to cats being fostered until spay and neuter time, we continue to foster other animals that come in and go out from the time we take them in after rescue, during treatment, and until they find their own homes. Current fosters include several kittens, Atlas and Baby G, older cats, one cat that has no lower limb function (Thomas), as well as a water Buffalo calf needing a place to recover when he's discharged from UC Davis.
We continue to treat our special warriors as well. Some current treatments for our warriors include bladder emptying, gavage feeding, Torpedo feeding, medication administration, and bottle feeding.
Additionally, as winter approaches we are currently winter proofing all our habitats for our residents and fosters.
