Local Vet Dr. Mike Bonda Aids Last Chance Animal Sanctuary

Last Chance Animal Sanctuary is a local charity located in Bradenton, Florida. They provide love and care to kitties in need as they live the remainder of their lives at the sanctuary.

All cats/kittens are tested for feline leukemia, aids, heartworm, dewormed, flea treated, microchipped, receive their FVRCP and rabies vaccines, and are spayed/neutered. Many of the rescued cats require additional medical attention. That is where River Landings Animal Clinic veterinarian Dr. Michael Bonda comes in,


“I became involved with last chance through my client, Linda Litke, who is one of the volunteers and the main person involved with medical decisions on their cats when a medical concern arises.” 


Having been involved with Last Chance Animal Sanctuary for eight years, he has dedicated almost a decade to the cause and care of these felines. 


“The best part of working with last chance is being able to help with medical treatment and surgeries on the rescue and shelter cats that would not be able to have veterinary care elsewhere due to high costs and not being an owned pet.”


As you can guess, medical expenses and general everyday care add up. You can provide monetary donations towards any veterinary bills the shelter has with River Landing Animal Clinic. You may also donate any needed supplies from the shelter’s Amazon wish list.

For more ways, you can get involved just as our very own Dr. Bonda has— from adoption to volunteering— head on over to Last Chance Anima Sanctuary’s website!
