Meet Spectra

Last month, a sweet stray cat was brought to the APF after being hit by a car in Niskayuna. She was clearly in a lot of pain and needed immediate lifesaving medical attention. Our staff acted swiftly, providing emergency triage at the shelter and then transferring her to a veterinary hospital for immediate surgery.

Upon assessment, we found that Spectra had suffered irreparable damage to her right eye, both of her ear drums had ruptured and she had multiple facial bone fractures.

Spectra received the critical medical care she required and returned to the APF to rest up. She is now healing nicely and is expected to make a full recovery.

Spectra was given the second chance she so deserves because of supporters like you. When you donate to the APF, you become a hero in the lives of animals in need. Spectra is happy and comfortable and has a great future to look forward to thanks to YOU.
