Hey guys, I follow a variety of shelter/rescue pages on Facebook, and this is one of the worst I’ve seen in a while— any money towards the poor baby would be greatly appreciated. Even just $1 if that’s all you can afford :(

Phoenix’s story, and why he needs YOU…As you may know, Pathway has been asking for help for Phoenix, a tiny, critically ill kitten who has been hospitalized all week. We want to share with you now his difficult story, and why we need your help.
Phoenix’s mother was adopted from a local shelter. She was never spayed, and she was bred in a home where animals are considered “fun” - its fun to allow them to have babies, but what isn’t fun is when these innocent babies are flea infested, unable to eat, unable to see from infection and disease, covered in ringworm and worse, and they are left to suffer.
We don’t know how old Phoenix is. He suffered from malnourishment for so long that the doctors can’t tell. The owner states 3 months of age, but he is just 1 pound, the weight of a 4 week old kitten. Phoenix has FVR, very common in kittens, and it can cause upper respiratory infection, particularly when an animal is in a poor environment. Phoenix’s FVR was left untreated and became severe pneumonia. He had discharge coming from his eyes and nose that eventually sealed his eyes closed. He then was left with no sight. No one seemed to notice. His nose also sealed closed, making breathing difficult and causing him to lose interest in food because he could not smell. No one tried to nurse him to health or paid attention when he could not eat. He became more and more lethargic and dehydrated by the day. He could no longer walk and likely hadn’t eaten in a week, but no one cared. His heart rate was 250 beats per minute and his temperature was extremely low. He was dying. Finally, on what was likely his last day, his owner made contact with a rescuer. After hours of questioning, the owner finally agreed to surrender Phoenix.
Upon seeing his condition, Phoenix was immediately rushed to the hospital, where he has been since. It was shocking to see the state that he was in. This was not just a sick baby in need. This was a sick baby in need that people had watched suffer every day. They saw that his eyes were covered and sealed in a thick green discharge and that his nose was sealed shut. They saw that he was unable to eat or drink. They saw that he could no longer even stand or walk. Yet, they did nothing for those days, weeks and possibly even months while he struggled. Their last action of handing over the responsibility of a dying cat to Pathway was the only kind action that they ever did for Phoenix.
Now, we ask for your help. And, we are sorry to have to ask again and again for support, but it is the only way that we can continue to help defenseless babies like Phoenix. Phoenix has been hospitalized most of the week, and he likely will need to stay in the hospital a few more days. Phoenix’s lungs are riddled with pneumonia and his body filled with infection, but he is still fighting. Phoenix’s life has been one of daily suffering, but now he has a chance. An amazing family read Phoenix’s story and fell in love, and a wonderful home is waiting for him when he gets better. Please help us to give this gift to Phoenix.
Donations can be made online at: http://www.apathwaytohope.org/how-can-you-help.html, or mailed to A Pathway to Hope, PO Box 165, Hawthorne, NJ 07508. Each $10 that you donate gives you a chance to win a dog or cat raffle basket (will be shipped to you).
Thank you for any help that you can offer this sweet baby boy. No matter what, we will keep the promise we made to Phoenix late Tuesday night - he will suffer no more at the hands of humanity, and he will now know only kindness.
*** STOP SCROLLING PLEASE ***
You see the girl on the left? She’s my best friend from elementary school. The girl on the right? I’ve known her most of my life. They went missing yesterday and no one knows what happened. I don’t care if it doesn’t fit your blog type, I don’t care if you don’t even know where Bartlett is or if you even live my city.
Just please reblog this. Help us find them.
Update: They were supposedly last seen with a man. If they’ve been kidnapped or went somewhere with the man, they could be far out of my state by now. Please reblog this.
GUYS. THIS IS FUCKING SERIOUS.
My little brother is missing. His name is Keary Johnson. He’s 14 years old. He was last seen getting off the bus in front of our house in Castleton, Vermont… 4 hours ago. He’s autistic. Not severely, but it’s important to note here. His stuff isn’t at the house, meaning he never made it there. No one saw him go anywhere but walk up to our house.
Guys, I don’t care where you live… please PLEASE fucking signal boost this. I live 1,200 miles away and I feel so utterly helpless but I DO have 4,000 followers and I want to know that my little brother is found ASAP. Please guys I’m fucking begging you PLEASE. Castleton is very close to the New York border and only an hour from Massachusetts and New Hampshire, god forbid he was abducted he could be in either of those directions. So please, please please reblog and spread the word.
I’m sorry I don’t have a better picture of him.
today a red jetta was confirmed to be believed the car that “took” sierra lamar…
seriously makes my heart hurt ‘cause this is so close to where i live :c
Pretty far from where I am, but kidnappers tend to take their victims far so it’s harder to find them.
my friend is going to get kicked out of her house. she has nowhere to go and she is planning to kill herself tomorrow. she NEEDS to get out of where she is and she needs somewhere to stay.
if you live near south shore mass please inbox me if she could stay with you.
please please PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST
I am terrified.
I just made out this blog to spread the news on how the system of my country is, and also to make sure that we’re not alone on this situation. Hopefully this will get enough notes so that we can show up other citizens to start getting aware that this system also need changes. English is not my native language and sorry if this seems confusing, but I have got no other idea.
I live in Mexico, and here almost everything concerning sexuality remains as a taboo. So everytime someone sees people that are different, nasty comments about them are not missing.
I have this friend, Tonatiuh, he’s a transgender person, and when he found out about what he really wanted, fortunately he found no disgusting comments or compalints from any of his parents, friends, relatives, and professors.
People did talk about this. There were rude persons, but Tonatiuh didn’t care at all, for he knew he wasn’t alone and that the people who were important for him were truly supporting his decision. Back then he was really happy.
But just a few months ago, on December, it was Friday, when he was walking home, he encountered these group of boys who bullied him ever since he decided to become a male. At first he tried to ignore them, but soon they started going after him, and although he ran the fastest he could, they soon reached him and started bashing him. The whole thing ended up in a rape. They raped Tonatiuh and left him alone, on the floor, with no mobile phone nor money. Fortunately an old woman saw him lying there in the street and helped him out. Tonatiuh told his parents, and the next Monday they decided to go denounce these deliquents with the direction, they said they’ll investigate the case, the guys were found and they were punished and expelled. There was no trial, so they didn’t go to jail, they just stopped going to school.
Just on late February, Tonatiuh realised he was no longer having his period (because he has still female parts in his body) and got afraid, because he never had it delayed before. His chest was also incresing a bit so he decide to go consult the Doctor. He had some analysis and found out he was pregnant.
Her parents awaited no more and soon they raised a sue against those boys, but there has been a week and they’re still awaiting for an answer. However, it seems that the authorities have abandoned the case, as always, here in my country, left-behind cases are pretty common, and this is why people prefer not going and denounce things anymore. This might explain quite well why there’s lots of corruption in here.
Tonatiuh soon fell into a great depression, his notes decreased (he was an award-winning student), most of his friends left him, he started getting a bot agressive, soon he was not going to school anymore, he locked himself into his bedroom, starved, didn’t sleep and spent most of his days crying.
He has told us that he doesn’t want to live anymore. And I, his closest friend, am also very worried, and considered even moving to his house to keep taking care of him.
He also told me that he found a place where arsenic is pretty cheap, and that soon he will kill himself by sipping a glass of water with arsenic on it. I begged, cried, asked and even demmanded him to reconsider this decision, but his answer always was “Nobody will cry because I died, so, why am I still awaiting?”
I promised him and myself that I will show him that even strangers actually care about him, so he said that if this post gets over 50,000 notes in less than a week, he will try to re-build his life again, but if this doesn’t, well, soon you’ll find us,his parents, family, friends, classmates, fighting him to make him understand that he just can’t say to hell with this and end with his life.
I beg you to like and reblog this, whatever, just to make him understand that he is not alone, and that even strangers care about his existence.
Read the posts, they could still be alive! encourage them to keep going!
My mom told me to wait at home in case she comes back while my mom looks for her. I have never been more worried in my life.
