We recently moved out of the city to a home on 40 acres. We have been quite surprised with the lack of love individuals have for their animals. It is not uncommon for us to awake to abandoned dogs and cats. However, the last abandonment was very heart-wrenching.

Early one morning, as my daughters went out to clean their horses' pens, they quickly returned with a kitten. She was darling — black with gray stripes and white whiskers. However, there was one problem: her front leg was completely broken. She could only drag it along as she walked. More than likely it broke when she was tossed from the vehicle. Now we weren't just facing trying to find a home for this precious animal, but also trying to find how we could get her surgery.

We called many veterinarian offices seeking a discounted or donated surgery, but had no success. We even drove to many clinics, hoping if they saw her they'd have compassion. That, too, was a failure. Finally, on our way to the pound we decided to stop off at ACT Spay/Neuter Clinic in Stockton. With great delight, Dr. Jill was working. She took the kitten, performed the surgery (amputation), and placed her in a loving home.

Through this experience my daughter now wants to become a veterinarian, offering hope for these unfortunate animals. If compelled, please send ACT a donation at 327 E. Alpine Ave., Stockton, CA 95204. They have been such a blessing to us, as I'm sure to many others.
