We are saddened to announce the death of MADN founding director, Thomas Parrish, on January 8, 2018. Tom served on MADN’s board since its formation in 2009, and most recently was our Board Parliamentarian, as well as chief editor of all documents. Tom will be sorely missed for his insights and expertise, and for the pleasure of his company. As one of his fellow directors so aptly stated “We are going to miss him and his wisdom and peaceful demeanor on the board.” Agreed.
Donations in Tom’s memory may be made by to MADN through our DONATE NOW Button.
This mama cat and her 4 kittens were abandoned in the yard at an empty rental house. After successfully trapping the family, they received medical care, and were taken to a foster home for love, socialization, and placement.
Jewel was adopted into a family with a dog and a 5 year old child. She is happily integrated into her forever home!
This precious dog was found wandering along Blue Grass Parkway and was rescued. When no one responded to the notices for a "found dog," she was adopted into her forever home.
Discovered alongside the road in a pile of trash when she was approximately 4 weeks old, this kitten was weak, dirty and had blood all over her neck. The volunteers who found her thought she was severely injured and took her to the vet expecting she would need to be humanely euthanized. Happily, she was not seriously injured, despite being starved and infested with fleas. After treatment, she was adopted into her forever home.
This is a kitten from a feral cat colony who was likely lost or abandoned by his mother and was not accepted by other members of the colony. The colony caretakers kept very close watch on this kitten and one weekend when the kitten seemed quite sick, a caretaker trapped the kitten and took him to the vet for treatment. He had a serious respiratory infection and required several weeks of care and supervision.
Fortunately, the kitten was young enough to become socialized and was adopted soon after his treatment, as you can see from this picture where he is settled comfortably into his new home!
These kittens were quick to learn litter box technique and relaxed into rescued life quite smoothly.
Mama cat and her kitten "Tuffy" have settled into their forever home! They enjoy the life of an indoor cat with a window view.
This beautiful cat was fed by a family in Woodford County whose property bordered the fields where he apparently lived. To this family’s great credit, when they moved, they made arrangements for him to be fostered and relocated to a new home.
This cat became homeless as a result of a divorce but was very lucky that the mother, who was unable to take her cat with her when she moved, nevertheless made arrangements for the cat to be adopted into another home so she was never abandoned to wander the streets.
This cat was found in a parking lot area where feral cats often congregate. He had been attacked and seriously injured. Thanks to MADN's support, he was neutered, his wounds treated, he was recovered in a safe haven, and placed in his forever home.
