Katie's Place - A Helping Hand for Diabetic Cats
We are so very excited!!!
Wild At Heart has now set up a Mix & Match Donation to help create and maintain a "Kibble Free Zone" at Katie's Place. This in turn will help educate potential adopters as to the huge benefits of a raw diet as well as get these kitties homes.
What is Katie's Place?
Katie’s Place is a volunteer-run nonprofit animal shelter in Maple Ridge B.C. They rescue and nurture small animals, adopting out those that they can and providing permanent sanctuary for the rest. The shelter is named after the cat who was its first resident and the rightful owner of the barn where it all began. Katie’s Place houses up to 125 cats with separate enclosures for new or convalescent cats and for the FIV/FeLV+ residents — who still hope for loving homes of their own.

Why a Kibble Free Zone?
Diabetic Cats.... Nobody Wants
They languish in shelter for years unless something is done.
A biologically appropriate diet for carnivorous cats is an absolute necessity to obtain the best glycemic control, weight control and the best chance of diabetic remission. When fed a proper diet, up to 90% of newly diagnosed diabetic cats may become non-diabetic and stay that way. **
