ORANGE — Freddy’s Rescue, a newly opened animal rescue in Bridge City, suffered a loss when Crispy passed this week.
Crispy, a kitten, suffered burns so severe it’s tail and ears had to be amputated in hopes of his recovery. The reasons for the burns are still under investigation by Vidor Police Department according to Amber Guillot of Orange.
Guillot said the burns the kitten suffered were significant.
“We thought he would make it,” Guillot said. “We are holding the vigil to bring awareness to animal abuse in the area.”
Freddy’s Rescue opened to the public five months ago.
A gofundme page at https://www.gofundme.com/ww4sfct8 was been set up to raise funds for medical expenses of the animals brought to the center. Currently the funds will assist a rescue dog named Sister.
When Sister originally arrived at the shelter it was believed she was suffering from injuries from being hit by a car. Further examinations discovered she was shot and has spinal damage and is paralyzed.
The group will hold a fundraising Car Wash beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday at the HEB parking near Dairy Queen in Orange.
“The Car Wash was to help raise funds for Crispy’s vet bills,” Amber said. “Now the funds are for Sister’s vet bills.”
