His Story

Bobby was a beloved house pet who loved to ride in cars and was living happily with the cats and dogs in the household until he was seen by someone passing by and was reported to Animal Control officials in 2008 when he was two years old. He was taken to a shelter that called Mollie Hogan. As soon as she saw him, she knew she had to bring him home – He was so cute and affectionate!

Bobby’s previous family took very good care of him except for one thing: they had him declawed. In the process, not only were the claws removed, but the tips of the paws as well, making it impossible for him to climb and very uncomfortable to jump or to walk very far. He now lives at Wildworks in a large space equipped with soft blankets on the floor, toys, and a ramp up to a sleeping shelf to help his sore feet. Declaw repair surgery, which would allow him to walk comfortably and to jump again, is available, but it is expensive.

Bobby desperately needs your help and support.

In order to give him the best care possible without the surgery, we must give him medication for the pain in his paws every day, which adds up fast! Any donation to Bobby will directly go towards making sure he has the best and most comfortable life possible. Bobby thanks you in advance!

If you would like to meet Bobby yourself, consider taking a "CatWalk" class. Bobby loves having visitors!

Look who's a fan of Bobby!
