A project of AUSTIN PETS ALIVE
Many highly adoptable cats are killed because of ringworm.
Ringworm is a contagious, but easily treatable skin fungus, similar to athlete’s foot.
We rescue cats with ringworm and treat them in our ringworm ward for a few weeks, giving them oral medications and special weekly baths until they are no longer contagious and can be moved into a foster home to finish treatment, re-grow their hair and become beautiful for adoption events.
Each cat costs us an additional $100 to treat beyond our regular costs. Please consider volunteering with these special felines or donating towards the cost of their care.
