Helping Cats, One by One: The Story of Arastha’s Rescue

Arastha’s rescue is an inspiring story of one woman’s dedication to helping cats in need. Harnita, an independent rescuer who runs Arastha’s rescue from Medan, Indonesia, has done something incredible - she’s managed to rescue more than 50 cats off the street and care for them with her own resources.

But now, Arastha’s Rescue needs help. Harnita has spent a lot of money on vet bills for injured or sick cats who cannot get the medical care they need. She’s also opened her heart and home to homeless cats who need a place to stay.

The goal is to pay off the big vet bills that she has accrued over the years so that she can continue to provide medical care for street cats in need. You can help Arastha's Rescue by donating funds. Let's come together and support this important mission!

Harnita’s Story and How Arastha’s Rescue Was Founded

Harnita has dedicated her life to helping cats. What began as a small rescue effort has grown into Arastha's Rescue, an organization that helps street cats who need medical help. By rescuing cats that have been hit by cars, those who are victims of animal abuse, or sickly strays, she has given many lives a second chance.

Generously taking cats in and providing them with all the care they need until they are healthy again, she now has a total of 50 cats under her loving guardianship. This has led to the creation of Arastha's Rescue, an independent rescue organization founded by Harnita with the goal of providing medical care for endangered street cats in Medan, the capital and largest city of the Indonesian province North Sumatra.

A Closer Look at the Current Problems

With her tireless efforts and dedication, Harnita has taken it upon herself to help these cats - no matter how challenging the task may be. She knows that saving even one life is worth all the effort, but she's also acutely aware of how difficult it can be to pay for vet bills for so many cats.

Harnita adopted a cat named Oren, who currently has a vet bill of $180. Harnita is also handling the case of a scabies-afflicted cat, whose bill totals $75. Most recently, Harnita has been dealing with a cat that was hit by a car and required amputation surgery due to its leg being crushed in the accident. Furthermore, the surgery is quite pricey, so she has quite a lot of vet debt that she hasn't been able to settle yet.

Harnita has dedicated her time to caring for cats who have been in accidents. This is her special story; she rescues cats in agonizing pain after their accidents, providing them with the medical attention they need.
