Rocky – Helped Oct. 2015

We have a cat story for national cat day! Waiting for an update from the owner and vet, but Rocky here should be going home today. An application came in Tuesday late afternoon. We approved right away as Rocky here had a blocked urethra with a bladder already about 4 in. in diameter! The bladder could have burst at any time. He was catheterized and the vet said they felt he was unblocked but wanted to keep an eye on him for another day.

Desi here has been on Clavamox for two weeks and it has not cleared up his UTI infection – he is still urinating blood. The owner applied for help as she cannot afford further treatment. We are happy to help Desi via our general vet care fund for additional treatment, and he goes in tomorrow (Friday)!

Ezra here was shot in the front leg for having roamed on a neighbor’s property. It’s so hard to keep personal comments from these posts sometimes! His leg was completely shattered. The blessing is that it missed all organs. So lil’ Ezra of just a year and a half is going into surgery tomorrow for an amputation. Because of the severity, the entire shoulder to the scapula is going to be removed. Thank you for your good vibes and thoughts, as always. That’s why we post before the surgery, if we can, to have all of that love sent their way.

Sweetie – Helped Oct. 2015

Meet “Sweetie!” She had broken her back leg and needed pin surgery for which we happily were able to assist! The owner actually paid for the majority of the surgery before she contacted us. She unfortunately busted her stitches once already, but so far she is happy to be home!

Gracie – Helped Sept. 2015

Gracie is a companion pet for a young, U.S. Marine with PTSD. She was chasing the cat down the stair and broke her femur completely – a clean break!  She was almost euthanized because the owner could not afford the cost the ER vet quoted him. The next day he found us through a web search, and we immediately were able to get her the surgery needed! He drove her to one of our orthopedic vet partners and  the owner’s monetary contribution was reduced to a reasonable $240.  Gracie is now home and happy!
