Success Story
Cat or Dog


Sheba is a five-year-old cat from North Carolina. She was in foster care looking for her forever home when she suffered a fall. At first, it was believed that Sheba would overcome the injury from a fall with tender love and care, but fate had other ideas.

She was adopted by a loving mother who lives on Social Security and was disheartened to learn that Sheba needed $4000 surgery. Without surgery, Sheba would have an ongoing head tilt for the rest of her life. She needs surgery so that she can live her life to the fullest.

We are looking for your help to please help this poor kitten and her mother overcome this injury. With surgery to correct the head tilt, she will live a happy and normal life. You have the power to not just make someone’s day but literally make their life. Every dollar helps.

Thanks for caring.

Sheba is doing well!

Sheba's ear healed well and while she does tend to tilt her head out of habit, she is doing much better.

The rescue who helped organize this case said:

I have been a cat rescue volunteer for almost 15 years. In that time, I have seen a lot of animals that needed serious medical help. It can be heartbreaking when you don't have the money needed to help innocent lives. Our rescue in NC helped a sweet female tuxedo kitten this past year that had a major head tilt from a large inner ear polyp. The diagnostics and surgery to repair the ear was astronomical to a small volunteer organization. We even found a good family for the kitten, but had to ask For the Love of Alex for funds to save little "Sheba". This organization stepped up with speed and grace. They were tuned into the details of our case, and made getting the medical help smooth and efficient. It meant the world to the adopters, the kitten and the volunteers. For the Love of Alex fills a huge need in the rescue and animal lover community. I am so glad to know they are in existence to help the desperate and complicated cases. Good communicators and big hearts!! Thanks so much.
