Help PAWSGH Care for Helpless Animals Like River the Kitten

She was cold and scared.

A small kitten, unable to move her back legs.

There she was, sitting helpless where someone had cast her aside, in the side yard at PAWS of Grays Harbor.

As soon as we saw her, we rushed the kitten inside PAWSGH, and gave her an examination.

As well as her useless back legs, her tummy was badly distended—almost completely impacted with something like small rocks or gravel. We named her River, and treated her condition as best we could, but we didn’t know if she was going to make it through the night….
