Cat sedated before having head removed from dryer vent mount

The Animal Foundation, Nevada’s largest animal shelter and pet adoption agency, was called to a home by a woman who asked for assistance after finding the stray with his head stuck.

Animal Control officers decided to bring the cat to the shelter so the cat could be sedated before the team used bolt cutters to remove the mount.

The cat wasn’t seriously injured and only experienced a bit of swelling to his face. The decision was made to neuter, vaccinate and ear clip the cat while he was still under sedation.

    I am very low income. My cats have never been outside in 12 years. The Colony I was talking care of was was wiped out by Drunken Republicans and meth heads and satanic believes. There’s only 4 left out of 30cats. Agencies need to pull together with the big one who is trying to raise 5million now. I know of a smaller rescue and TNR are doing just fine.
