If you’re part of our Facebook community, then you were privy to learning about Hercules, An 18-year old Blue Bicolor Ragdoll Cat that was dumped at a kill shelter because his owners could no longer afford his food and litter.
MeLinda Hughes at Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll and Maine Coon Rescue was the one that told me about Hercules.
MeLinda’s Ragdoll Rescue does so much to help kitties in shelters or to help people that need to rehome their kitties.
Recently, Susan from Atlanta contacted me via e-mail wanting to know about Ragdoll Rescues in Atlanta. I told her the only rescue I knew closest to her was Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll and Maine Coon Rescue. So she contacted MeLinda and MeLinda turned her onto another rescue in Atlanta – Atlanta Persian and Siamese Rescue.
MeLinda also suggested that Susan check out Siamese Rescue as they will often have Ragdoll rescues and will ship to Atlanta.
So now Susan is on her way to finding a Ragdoll to rescue in her home town.
Hercules was later adopted – and we’re not sure if it was because of our efforts or not – but it doesn’t matter!
Merlin’s Hope Ragdoll and Maine Coon Rescue could use your donations though! They need volunteers, beds, food, litter, photographers and more. Please check out their Ragdoll Rescue wish list!
When I asked MeLinda her wishes, she said:
“They can also send funds directly to our vet:
Ennis Vet Clinic (972) 875-2647 · 3101 N Kaufman St, Ennis, TX 75119
We actually need funds donated for Sweet Pea, who will need full vetting at my regular vet, rather than our low cost spay clinic, due to her heart murmur. She has an appointment next Wednesday for a full check-up.
We always need food (Innova EVO, Felidae Graine-Free from Petfooddirect), any kind of cat litter. We are good on beds and towels.”
