Update: Dakota is doing great on special food and daily medication – she is now ready for adoption!

When Dakota first came into our care, she was covered in scabs and missing a lot of her fur.

DAKOTA is a sweet, calm lap cat. She wants nothing more than to keep you company all day long!

Dakota came into our care from a local shelter with skin issues. She had scabs all over her neck and chest and her skin in this area was infected. She was also missing a lot of fur on the bottom half of her body. These photos were taken a month or so after coming into our care after her treatment had made a lot of progress.

There are a lot of allergens that can cause Dakota’s symptoms. Addressing them and ruling them out is a time consuming process. Dakota has made many trips back and forth to the vet. She’s a real trooper. After almost a year in our care, with careful monitoring, Dakota is almost ready for adoption. We have figured out what treatment she needs and she has been without symptoms for a while. Dakota will need to stay on special prescription food and allergy medication. She’s a good girl – chows down her medication in her food. So its easy to give her the treatment she needs.

If you would like to help us care for Dakota, please consider being her Guardian Angel.

Thank you Shelley for being Dakota’s foster mom, and Janet and Emily for being her guardian angels!
