Foster Cat Freya With Three Broken Legs Leaves Hearts Broken Around The World (Tear Warning)

If you follow our social media pages and website, you’re likely familiar with our recent foster home abuse story. The heartbreaking tale of fluffy tortie Freya spread across the world just over a week ago. Suffering from 3 broken legs, the poor girl had been abused at her foster home. The team at A New Beginning Animal Rescue and veterinarian Dr. Kristie Ellis set to work, giving Freya the medical attention and love she needed. But poor Freya’s 10-year-old body was too battered.

Sadly, on Wednesday morning March 6th, Freya lost her battle and crossed the Rainbow Bridge. 

A New Beginning shared the devastating news on their Facebook page, clearly distraught. 

With totally broken hearts we have to inform all who loved her, that this morning, Freya gave up and crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

Everyone who met her (and even everyone who didn’t), loved her. All who took care of her and visited her, noticed the look in her eyes, the “Giving-up Look”, that look never changed all these days.

We are so devastated and we were so hoping to make her the most spoiled cat in the world but she just couldn’t hold on any longer.

We are going to have Freya cremated and would like to invite you to send some messages with her. We’ll print the messages and have them cremated with her. Her ashes will be returned to us.

PLEASE, we only want messages of Love and hope to accompany her on her final journey, there is no room for Hate.

RIP sweet, brave girl! You were loved so much! We are so sorry we failed you and couldn’t make up for it!!!

Over the last two weeks, Freya had been in Dr. Ellis’s care and received every comfort that they could provide her. 

The shelter continued to visit her and share all the updated on her prognosis. 

I saw Freya yesterday in person and spent some time with her just giving her Love.

It breaks mine and everyone’s heart to see just how broken she is, not just her body but her spirit too.

Please keep this sweet girl in your thoughts and prayers. I told her that so many people love her and that she will NEVER be hurt ever again!

When we wrote the original story, our amazing online family donated a staggering amount for precious Freya. Just over $5,000 was raised to contribute to her surgeries and aftercare! The world had been shocked at her unfortunately and completely avoidable tragedy. But just like the rescue group, NO ONE could have seen this coming.  

A week after the phone call was received alerting the shelter to her injury, Freya’s update was not what her caregivers had hoped. 

She is doing ok, about the same as yesterday. Her spirit is still very down and she has no spark in her eyes. She has been eating a bit better today. She is still being syringe-fed, but she showed a bit more liking to being fed. ~ March 1st, 2019

The police were officially investigating the case, but it was about to become a bit more dramatic. 

We are working with Police. We have forwarded all paperwork and x-rays, evaluation and letter from her vet etc. The case is now official and they are working on it.

Still, it was a surprise when on March 2nd, A New Beginnings received an upsetting phone call. 

Yesterday, we received an unpleasant phone call from someone who didn’t want to be identified on behalf of the fosters. The sole purpose of the phone call was to get us to say something that was not true and to intimidate us. I told the caller that this was now a legal matter and that I could not and would not talk to him about it.

He accused us of “Double-Dipping” by raising funds for Freya and yet trying to get the fosters to pay for the medical costs and he stated that this was illegal.

Tell that to Freya, because these aren’t minimal medical costs!

Photo: @anbrescue

The accusation was ridiculous, because A New Beginnings Animal Rescue fosters follow the same guidelines as others. 

Every foster is required to sign a Foster Agreement that states that, if one of our animals that is in their care gets injured, they would be responsible for the medical costs arising from this injury. If one or our animals in their care gets sick, the rescue will be responsible for the medical costs. This is standard procedure with most rescues and shelters.

Since we don’t know whether the fosters will own up to their responsibility, we started the fund-raiser for Freya. [This is NOT the fundraiser initiated by Cole and Marmalade]. If we are able to recover the medical costs for Freya from the fosters, any excess funds raised will be used to help other animals in need.

We also couldn’t wait with taking care of Freya and her injuries until this was determined. Worst case scenario is that this will go to court (independently from the abuse investigation), which would probably take several months.

So not only were they trying to save Freya’s life, they were being harassed. 

They resolved to fight harder for their dear girl, because that’s exactly what was important–Freya. Funds had been raised and were being put to use, keeping her from the pain of her injuries. She still wasn’t feeling great, so she was kept on pain medications. 

Dr. Ellis said she did well over the weekend, she is eating more and having more movement with her back legs and is pooping now. She just finished with her towel bath, brushing and leg massages. Fight baby girl!

Her many new supporters and followers were sure to send their prayers, healing purrs and love. 

Sending more healing prayers her way. We all love you little Freya and hate what was done to you. There are good people in the world and you are with them now. Don’t give up. ~ Debi Bouchard 

Sweet Girl! Get well little darling so you can live the good, happy life you were supposed to live! You will never be hurt or abused again. We all love you Precious Freya! Keep Fighting!πŸ’”πŸ™πŸ˜”β€ ~ Sandy Johnson

That was the last update before the soul-crushing, heartbreaking news this morning.

So now I sit here bawling at my desk writing Freya’s too-soon ending. She didn’t deserve this, and none of them do. She’d gotten through difficult times and found her way to a foster home. Eventually, she’d be picked by a loving family to live out her senior days in peace. 

Now, our last hope is that her memory and story serve as proof that there is justice in the world. Animal abuser need to be stopped so more lives aren’t lost.

Regardless of the outcome of the investigation and court decision, Freya has changed the lives of everyone who hears her story. She will go on in the hearts of all the foster felines of the world, joining them all in spirit during their happy ending adoptions. 

REMEMBER: ADOPT, DON’T SHOP; FOSTERING SAVES LIVES & SPAY AND NEUTER!

  2. Poor little girl! You had such a rough life, I’m so sorry you were too weak to fight anymore just when there were good people in your life. All critters deserve love, I’m glad you had it in your last days. My kitties are waiting for you across the bridge. 😒❀️

  3. This is the first I’ve heard of Freya and it has moved and upset me so much. The poor innocent sweet little soul should never have been treated like this. I hope the monster that caused this will get his punishment. Personally I’d like to brake his legs for starters. Got really emotional over this. Bless you sweet little darling, no more suffering just playing over rainbow bridge . 🌈😒😒😒😿😿😿

  4. The Foster Mom should no longer be fostering. RIP Freya. so sorry that you had to endure all this pain before you are at peace. Just know that you are are peace and no longer in pain. RIP.

  7. Rest in peace sweet girl. You were loved by many. Hopefully your case will help with cases in the future because it was brought to light.

  8. Many tears, but the love you inspired will live on I never knew You, nor did my two rescues but sending you love on your journey over the bridge from Chrissi Shadow and Tyty

  9. Safe travels Freya. You are a warrior <3
    I hope you find swift running, good hunting and a safe shelter when you sleep.
    A lot of little furballs await you to play, love, groom and have fun with.
    You are safe now, but will be missed

  10. Omg I bawling as I read this! I’m so sorry for you Frenya!!😿😿😿😿 You never stood a chance with all the abuse you suffered! Join all the other angels in Heaven ! And thank you to all the Drs and volunteers whom did their best! Karma is coming to these inhumane abusers!

  11. I am so very sorry to hear this news. I was so hoping with the tremendous care she was getting she would be able to overcome her injuries. At least she knew love in her hours of need. Thank you for you not giving up on her. And please bring the evil monster who did this to her to justice!

  12. Freya is a beautiful girl it just breaks my heart she passed. I use to have a cat that looks like her and I loved her. She’s with her family now and I bet she’s really happy.

  13. I am an animal lover. No pet wether cat or dog should not have to be abused. We need to stop all animal abuse. Rest in Peace sweet Freya.

  14. May God bless you and heal your body and your heart little Freya and take you safely over the rainbow bridge to a wonderful place meant for trusting souls such as yourself. May you join the many others in a world without pain and abuse and form kindred friendships with those already there, such as my kitties Lily, Rusty, Miss Kitty, Abbey, Pitterpat and Midnight. And my jovial cocker, Sable, who loved kitties too! It sounds like there were many who loved you and wished the best for your healing. May your struggles not go unnoticed.πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’—πŸ™πŸ»β€”Jana

  15. Our prescious Freya? You will always be in my heart. I have never met you but I love you as if you were mine. I am so very sorry this happened to you. I hope you felt the love that was in this world for you. There are many in the world that prayed and hoped you could recover and so heartbroken when you just couldn’t. Again I love you beautiful Freya.

  16. Dear Freya….I’m so sorry for all you went through. But I’m so glad your last days were filled with love, being surrounded by so many people who made every effort to help you. I cannot imagine the pain you endured before that. Thankfully, the last people you spent time with were kind. You deserved so much more than the trauma you endured. You look so much like my former Kallie that it’s even more heartbreaking bc I see her in you. Know that you are loved. That you mattered. I hope you find Kallie to play with, among so many other sweet babies who are waiting for you over the Bridge. Rest gently, baby girl. β™‘β™‘β™‘

  17. Please add this note for her..

    I am so sorry we have lost such a precious little girl much too soon! I am also sorry that your time here on earth was not filled with the love and joy it should have been, but I am so grateful for the loving care you received in your last days! May you return to us and have your heart filled to brimming over with love, care, kindness, and comfort.

    Rest easy sweet girl, your fight is over, but we will continue to fight on your behalf!

  18. RIP little Freya a shame you were taken away like this I truly wish that the person who did this is brought to justice they should feel ashamed of their actions my heart breaks knowing that people you trustedto foster you did this no wonder you gave up but at least you had love and care and comfort in those last days xx

  19. RIP dear Freya. Know that forever more you will run free and never suffer again. You beautiful cat, I will love you forever.

  20. I hope this “boyfriend” gets hung and this 80 year old woman would like to watch. What a horrible, horrible person and I hope he heads right to hell. That beautiful kitty deserved better and thank God for the people that tried.

  21. Freya, you were ready to go. You’d been through too much on your earthly journey. I know you took with you the memories of being loved and cared for the last few days when you crossed. Rest in eternal peace.

  22. Animal abuse laws need to be stricker everywhere! I can’t believe how some people can do this to a helpless animal who depends on people to take care it. Little Freya, look up my girl, Seal. She would love to romp with you! You are where no one can ever hurt you again.

  23. Darling little Freya, the only solace for us is that your suffering has ended. I wish you could have known all the love that is in this world for you before you had to leave, and I hope you are now happily running and playing with your friends that have gone before you over the Rainbow Bridge. Rest in Peace little one.

  24. Our Maddie looked a lot like Freya. My son loved that cat when I told him about Freya he would have done almost anything to adopt her. She would have been spoiled rotten.

  25. Sleep tight beautiful girl. You have touched so many hearts. So sorry you had to go like that but you knew love eventually xx

  26. Dear Freya, I am so sorry you had to go through what you went through. My heart cries… I pray you will recover in the great beyond and run and play and be held by angels… ❀❀❀

  27. May you rest in peace sweet Freya, I hope the sorry thing that calls itself a human is severely punished for what it did to you. At least you’re safe now and no harm will ever come to you again😿

  28. This killed my day. I donated what I could, hoping she would pull through, and shared her story. Poor old girl. I hope justice does find a way to do what it needs to – obviously if they’re being harassed, someone doesn’t just have a guilty conscience, but is just plain guilty. I’m glad she wasn’t suffering terribly, but it still breaks my heart, and now I’m at work crying for this poor little lost soul. Rest easy, Freya.

  29. I sit at my work desk with a red, stuffy nose as I try not to cry. Freya, may you chase butterflies and crackly leaves over the Rainbow Bridge. You were loved, even if you never had a chance to meet us.

  30. Freya- Such a BEAUTIFUL kitty! I am SO sorry this happened to you. I am just crushed that you went through all the pain and suffering that NEVER should have happened. I thought sure you would pull through but I think your spirit and body just had given up. I LOVE you! I had a cat – Tamatha who looked like you. Sweetheart kitty- like you. May you have peace now that you have crossed over the rainbow. So many people cared and loved you baby kitty! GOD BLESS YOU!

  31. I am sad. I left a man who abused me and my cat. This man deserves death in my opinion. We need better laws on the books. Sweet kitty you are free now from the pain. Know that all humans are not vial creatures. Cuddles and Mayhem, welcome Freya. Watch over her. Let her know when I get there I will love and cuddle her as if she was mine. Thank you to all that tried to help her and showed her love.

  32. Freya….
    God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be…..so he gently stroked your little paws and whispered come to me.
    So he wrapped his arms around you, and our Freya was now free.
    You didn’t deserve what you went through, so he finally gave you rest.
    God’s garden must be beautiful, for he only takes the best.
    Rest in peace sweetheart, go play beyond that Rainbow Bridge…you are loved more than you will ever know. Xx

  33. Please send my note with her too.

    Dear sweet baby girl,
    First I just want to apologise for the way you were treated and let you know it wasn’t your fault you did nothing wrong you didn’t deserve this at all. I know that you aren’t in anymore pain and are running around now with Ares, Sambo, and Mikey. (My little angel cats) Please know that you are forever in our hearts always loved and never forgotten. Love you xoxo

  34. Freya. You have a body to play, to jump, to catch. A body of a healthy and young pussy cat, one that won’t be hurt or fell neglect again, but love and kindness that has no end, you’re safe now in the garden of love with a rainbow view and forever everyone will be thinking of you xx

  35. Big huge hugs to you my dear girl. WE will all meet one day and may your life now be full of love. Seek out a tortie named Luna – she will take care of you ….Much love little one.

  36. Sweet Freya girl, I am so sorry this horrible thing happened to you. You did not deserve it, you were as innocent as a child, and couldn’t speak for yourself. I hope the wonderful humans who tried to help you made your last days a little less painful. And I also hope that you are someplace running happy and free, forever.

  37. May you play without pain and feel loved in a place where you can never be hurt again, RIP little Freya πŸ’•πŸ’•

  38. May God receive you in his tender care. I’m so sorry you were failed but you were truly loved. Rest In Peace Freya.

  39. Freya, you have the same name as my Calico. you are now free of pain and will be running the fields on the other side of the bridge. I wish you love and peace.

  40. RIP dearest Freya. Run fast and free over the rainbow bridge. You are God’s furbaby now and you will never feel pain again. Only love. ❀️❀️❀️

  41. Beautiful, sweet, brave Freya! You were a light in the world to so many. You are loved and will be missed. ❀️❀️❀️

  42. Freya I’m so glad your last days with us you had the Love you so much deserved. You will be free and no more pain and suffering and able to be with all the other Furbabies that crossed over to Rainbow Bridge.

  43. Rest well sweet angel you are joining a wonderful choir of fur babies, one of them my Squeekers who passed recently and many tiny foster babies who passed too soon without their Mommies. Find them and run free, no more pain or fear.

  44. Freya, you have the same name as my Calico. you are now free of pain and will be running the fields on the other side of the bridge. I wish you love and peace.

  45. My dear sweet beautiful FREYA …. I’m sooo sorry you had to endure the hideous horrific animal abuse that you did … but my love ..❀️. you now are whole & healthy w/ no broken bones ; no broken spirit … you can run freely in the green grasses of HEAVEN where you will be at complete peace & happiness. Surrounded by love & you will NEVER suffer any pain or hurt ever again! LOVE & kisses & hugs …,❀️..TANYA

  46. Such a dear little creature of God she was. So much like my little tortie. God will help the little soul accross the Rainbow bridge and keep her protected and happy. She deserves so much more. I have tears in my eyes but only love in my heart to send with her on her journey.

  47. Allerliefste Freya,

    Voeg je bij al die andere kleine engeltjes. Voel de liefde en warmte in jouw stromen. Zodat al het verdriet, alle teleurstellingen en pijn voor eeuwig zal verdwijnen. Onze liefde zal altijd bij jou zijn.
    Je bent prachtig Freya!

    Een liefdevolle kus van mij ❀️

  48. Hi, I’m in tears reading this story. All our cats are strays that are family. A few were feral have become family as well.

    I wish there were more stricter laws on animal abusers.

    Thanks for all you do.

  49. Freya you will always be remembered. I wish that I had met you and cuddled you at least once precious girl πŸ˜”
    Run free and play in the sun! ❀️

  50. Freya, I hope that your next 8 lives will be better and you are now feeling all the love that is out there for you. Rest in Peace little one.

  51. It’s not fair that this happened to you. RIP Freya & I hope they punish the person that did this to you.

  52. Freya….so sorry you had to suffer and I am sending you warm cuddles and love. If this world could have more empathy and compassion. You were beautiful on this earth…

  53. Dear Frey’s

You are the spitting image of my two loving twin girls Tiggy and Taz and I hope that you meet them over the Rainbow Bridge. I am sure that they will show you around along with their ginger brother, Tom. I am glad that you had some wonderful love and caring in your life. We love you!

    Love you little girl.

  76. Rest In Peace Sweet Baby Girl. May your wings carry you to Heaven’s Gate so that you may feel no pain and be free to run, chase clouds and play with Angels.
    God Bless You my sweet brave Angel.
    Time for you to soar higher than while on Earth.

  77. Oh Freya, sweet little girl, may you be safe on your journey across the rainbow bridge and be happy and pain free now β€οΈπŸ’”

  78. Bless you sweet girl and all those who comforted you in the final days. You are at peace and no longer suffering. I pray someone has taken action to remove all animals from this so-called foster and that all animal groups have been notified that this not a suitable foster. Unfortunately the laws for animal abuse don’t place enough value on animal lives so they fall short of delivering the punishment the offenders deserve. I hope there is some justice for Freya.

  79. I am utterly heartbroken. She looks so much like my cat Becky. Poor, sweet, Freya, I’m sitting here totally crying over this. I hope she knew how much she was loved by everyone and that not all humans are horrible. Peace, love and light, sweet girl.

  80. Sweet Freya, breaks my heart to hear about your plight. No animal should have to go through abuse. I fell in love with you right away. I love all animals. When my husband was alive we had all kinds of rescue animals on the farm. Now with my health I’m not able to continue. I still have cats and dogs. Most are rescued. When these have passed over the rainbow I will rescue more. Just know that you will never be forgotten and will always be loved. Thank you to all the wonderful people who stepped up to help you try and recover. Not everyone has evil in their heart. Go with love ❀️ sweet baby.

  81. Poor sweet little girl. Your deserved so much to have a loving home. I know God must have a special place for his little furry creations. My heart is broken for this little girl. To have not only the physical injuries but to have he spirit destroyed. May you now be in a place where you only know love and can run, explore and play like the beautiful cat you are.

  82. Run free sweet Freya, there are so many friends waiting for you at the Rainbow bridge. You will be missed and you are loved even more now as you can feel the love of all that have gone before you. Wait for us Freya we will see you when our time comes because if you aren’t in heaven then I want to go were the animals go!πŸ’–

  83. Asking Fairmont and spooky cats that have made the rainbow bridge crossing too, to find you and be with you, as you are enveloped in love and peace

  84. Freya , you were loved and your little life meant so much to so many. Run free little girl and never hurt again. We are so sorry this was done to you. You never deserved it!

  85. Rest in peace Freya so sorry you had to endure what you went through but no more pain baby girl your in the loving arms of our creator.

  86. Run sweet girl, pain free now.. I am so sorry this happened to you, you never deserved this. You will have so many wanting to meet you up there, my self included. Give them tortitude as you wait for us. Much love baby girl!

  87. Fly high sweet Freya. Such a sweet girl may you now find peace and know how much we all loved you xxx my heart is broken for you.

  88. This is a poem that was given to me when I lost my Beloved Misty
    and would like to share it with you.

    It Seems That I’ve Reached Heaven, Or It’s Doorstep At Any Rate,
    And Been Winding Round St. Peter’s Ankles By The Pearly Gates,
    I’ve Plucked The Angels’ Hapr-Strings And Made A Merry Sound,
    But It’s Plucking At My Heartstrings That You Are Not Around.

    So I Think I’ll Sit And Wait Here, Just Outside The Door,
    And As The Souls Come Floating In, I’ll Tap Them With My Paw,
    And When You Seek Admittance, They’ll Rename This Place-
    It Will Become Purradise, and These The Purry Gates!

  89. My heart is breaking to read all of this. Most importantly for Freya. Run free sweet baby for now you are whole again. Know you were loved by many. God will vindicate you and all abused animals. β€πŸ’”β€

  90. Poor Freya, you deserved so much better. But you were loved by many – from those who cared for your broken body and spirit, to the thousands who sent prayers and healing vibes for your recovery and hope for a loving “retirement”. Sadly, that was not to be. Now you’re free from pain, sweet girl. Rest peacefully in love and light.

  91. I am so sorry humans failed you’re so terribly. That in your time of need you couldn’t even find safety love and care in a foster home. I understand your hope and soul were broken beyond repair and you had to go. I will honor you and all the others by continuing to take into my heart and home kitties like you who have been left at the wayside in this world. Thank you for becoming an angel for all the rest of the homeless hurting kitties out there in the world.

  92. Dear little Freya, I am so sorry you had such a sad life and so much pain. But know that you are loved by many and God loves you. Rest in eternal peace and love, beautiful creature of God.πŸ™

  93. May she finally Rest In Peace and run along with the other cats and dogs. I pray that the person who did this get caught and punished. πŸ₯ΊπŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’”

  94. Dear precious Freya,
    You are in all our hearts as we grieve together. You are a beautiful girl who knew love from your rescuers and doctors and all who were part of your caregiver team who did all that was humanly possible to help you heal and recover. You gave your all and so did they, and I am sure you felt the caring and love from them and all of us who grieve for your kitty soul that was so innocent. You will never be forgotten and you will be in the company of Tiger, our beloved cat from Texas. Bless you and all those in your company and everlasting thanks to those who were there with you every step of the way..

  95. Run free sweet baby. We love you so much,lots of sunshine,cat nip and treats. RIP Sweet girl.β€οΈπŸ’‹

And you are going to know love, proper kitty spoiling, and gentleness like you never have! Because there are a lot of people there who love animals, and they will love to make you purr. I will look for you when I get there, and we will sit and enjoy the sun together. ❀

May your passing serve as an eye opening lesson on ways to improve all animals lives. You are in a better place now to frolic with the angels, our hearts are broken, but our eyes are open sweetheart.

  109. Dear, sweet Freya, I am so heartbroken. I am so thankful that you were surrounded by so much love and care during your fight! You will be forever loved and remembered! Thank you to all who helped, in any way, Precious Freya! Run free, sweet girl over the rainbow bridge- you will be in good company! No more pain. RIP!

  110. At least you knew love and peace at the end.. and hopefully that’s all you remembered….

  111. 😒 Freya is pain-free now. She is running happily. I hope justice will be done

  112. Bless you sweet girl and all those that cared for you in your final days. I am comforted knowing you are at peace and no longer in pain and that you saw that there are humans capable of kindness and love in the end. I hope an alert has been sent to all animal groups regarding this “foster” so no one ever places an animal with this abusive and heartless person. May there be justice and a deserving punishment for them.

  113. Sweet little Freya, you remind me of my dear Patches. May you rest in peace and feel no more pain. Run free and feel only love for you in kitty heaven! πŸ’”

  114. Rest easy baby girl. My heart breaks for you having to endure the abuse that no living creature should ever experience! I will hug my 3 kitties a little tighter today in your honor. I know you are in a much better place where there is no more pain.

  115. My heart breaks for you little girl. At least you knew love and warmth at the end. There could have been so much more but i hope you’re running free and basking contentedly in the sunshine now over the rainbow bridge xxxxx

  116. As angry as I am about how hurt Freya was by folks who were supposed to love & care for her. I’m so sad right now that her spirit & body were both broken beyond repair, in spite of all those who did their best to help her. I’ve been crying for the past 10 minutes or so, because that sweet girl was murdered, and those who tried to help her, have been threatened. Freya did not deserve to be beaten, no animal or person does. I know Freya’s an Angel now, no more beatings, and pain, and I’m thankful for that, and thankful that the Vet & those good people who helped her, did their best to love & care for her. Freya will always be in the hearts of those who knew her. RIP sweet Angel Freya. GB You

  117. That poor baby! 😭. Your journey on earth is too soon over. May you Rest In Peace over the Rainbow Bridge forever safe.

  118. Freya had looked so beautiful and sweet! I just wish I could have met her and even taken her in to live with my two cats if circumstances were different and I owned a house or condo.

    May you rest in peace sweet baby doll. I am sending you hugs and kisses. Maybe you will meet some of my prior cats who had also crossed the rainbow bridge into Heaven. They were awesome too.

  119. Dear Sweet Freya, You received so much love in your last days. I am heartbroken that your previous experiences were so heartbreaking for you that your spirit was unable to overcome them. You’ll have no more pain now. My hope is that you’re smiling & frolicking where you are now. So much love for you, Freya. πŸ’œ 🌺 πŸ’š πŸŽ‡ πŸ’œ

  120. Poor Freya, you deserved so much better. You will have it much nicer now. I believe that all cats go to heaven and you will be loved and be able to run and play again.

  121. I’m so sorry Little Freya You certainly deserved so much better out of life. May God Bless You and Dr. Ellis always and forever. Thank You Dr. Ellis for taking such good care of Freya

  122. Dearest sweet Freya,

    You will feel all of us who have sent love, there are so many giving to your spirit right now.

  123. Sweet Freya, Rest In Peace and know you were loved by so many who tried to help you and care for you in your time of need. I know my sweet kitty boys, Mel and Mac, were in that joyous crowd who greeted you as you scampered across the Rainbow Bridge 🌈 to your forever home in Heaven . ( a joy your abuser has forfeited due to his heinous and unspeakable actions)
    Love you, sweet girl…

  136. Final update on Freya’s case:
    To some of you, this might come as a shock and some of you might have expected this to happen:
    Since we are located in Utah and Utah is on the sad 42nd place of all states in the US when it comes to animal rights and protection, THIS CASE WAS CLOSED because they didn’t get a confession from either one of the fosters. Both were brought in by police and interviewed.
    Even with all the evidence, the case was “circumstantial” only and would have been thrown out by our so insufficient court system. Even though the animal control officer wanted to do more, he stated that because of Utah’s laws, he couldn’t. They said that anyone (landlord, handy-man or any other person who every was in their home) could be a suspect.
    We are very frustrated and angry about this, but to be honest, we expected that! It is infuriating that in Utah, you just about can set an animal on fire and even if it does go to court, the judge will tell the person “Now, that wasn’t very nice, don’t do it again! Case dismissed.”
    Unless a law is passed that states that whatever you are doing to an animal that will be done to you, nothing will change! Even with slowly better laws being passed, enforcing them is the key! There is nothing anyone can say, that we haven’t said already (including some choice words) and because they were not found guilty in any court of law, we can’t even share their names with anyone, even if we wanted to because we feel that it’s necessary to warn other rescues.😑
    We now need to go forward and focus on what we can do for these sweet innocent souls and help as many as possible and protect them from this kind of evil humans!!!!

  137. Poor sweet baby. This is so sad. How can people be so cruel to animals? We live in such a sick world. 😿

  138. Freya I am heartbroken that these horrible things happened to you to the point that you couldn’t hang on anymore. I don’t know how anyone could have hurt your sweet self. You only deserved love, care, food, a real home of safety, tenderness, protection and kitty fun in your life. I hope your little soul knows that the vets tried to save you, and that people around the world were cheering for you. Run free now baby, fully restored on strong healed legs, and be happy now forever surrounded by sunshine warmth and kitty friends in the afterlife. We love you sweet Freya.

  139. I love you. Know that you were loved here and missed. Run free at the Rainbow Bridge little one. <3

  140. Dear Freya,
    I’m sorry your life on earth was not very ideal, and I’m sorry that you had to be treated like this. I am so glad that you passed at the paws of the wonderful workers in the shelter you were in. I send my condolences to the workers at the shelter, and I hope that your time in Heaven will be better tenfold at least.

  141. Freya, I am so sorry you had to ensure such torture. It was not right. You are in heaven now and no longer in pain. I hope you are at peace. I hope your soul is filled with warmth and love. Rest in peace. ~Karma~

  142. Very very sad 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
    Rest in Peace dear 😭😭😭😭😭😭
