Because cats with feline leukemia virus (FeLV) are highly contagious and suffer shortened life spans, most shelters euthanize cats afflicted with the disease. Though cats with FeLV cannot be cured, they can live painlessly for several years when monitored. Austin Pets Alive! (APA) advocates for and protects abandoned and homeless pets through a variety of aid programs designed to prevent shelter euthanasia.
APA shelters FeLV-positive cats in individual enclosures so that they can live out the remainder of their lives in comfort, without the risk of infecting other animals. Infected felines cannot live in normal shelters due to the contagious nature of their illness, so they must move either to specialized shelters or adoptive homes. APA requires additional funding to build more cat enclosures for FeLV-positive cats, with the goal to prevent unnecessary euthanasia.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help prevent the euthanasia of FeLV-positive cats in shelters. If G-Team members raise $450, then Austin Pets Alive! can build one FeLV cat enclosure. Each additional $100 raised will fund two weeks' worth of food and litter for rescue cats.
