What Kittens!?

Hello everyone! This is Samson checking in with Straight from the Rescues' Mouths. This week/month has been a whirlwind!! I’m going to try and give you the cliff notes edition of the 2 important stories.


Poor RC, a 10 year old Thoroughbred,…I really feel bad for this boy. I have waited for all the puzzle pieces to fall into place before telling his story and announce he is ready for adoption! RC was relinquished the first time in December 2017 and adopted March 2018. I was very shocked to hear that his adopter called needing to relinquish him last month. The barn that was using him for lesson and leasing him called her tell her they no longer needed him. When he arrived, I heard them talking about him possibly having back leg issues and they barn had a chiropractor/therapy treatment done. I just noticed how long and how many cracks he had in his hooves. He got his feet done 3 days after he arrived. A week after he arrived at Illinois Horse Rescue Will County, he had a visitor. Thankfully, this visitor was very honest about everything. RC was rearing and they couldn’t figure out why. My human friends thought spine issues and call our vet immediately. The vet came out and did a FULL physical. The vet found no leg issues but positive back palpation thoracic through lumbar. They did x-rays and it showed evidence of kissing spice. If only one of the many people in his life, who had months to figure this out would have called a vet and gave them the truth. We are waiting on our vet to give us costs and recommend treatment options. He is up for adoption for $300.00. If you would like more information, please call 708-258-3959.

We had a transport of 16 barn cats and kittens come from Alabama! All 16 cats were adopted same day but yes, I said kittens! These 3 little cuties are very thin and sick. They had a vet visit yesterday to get them on the right medicines. There is 2 girls and 1 boy. They need sponsors and names! The person who is the highest sponsors for them will get to name them. Click here to sponsor the kittens. Winner will be picked 5/26/21 at 5PM.



That’s all for tonight. Check back to see what’s new with Straight from the Rescues’ Mouths.
