4-12016 Sweetie - cat with severe injury to jaw

SCOOP, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization is assisting a stray cat named “Sweetie” who the vet feels was severely abused by blunt force trauma to her face. The perpetrator is unknown. Various local rescuers went to a woman’s house (who had been feeding Sweetie for several months) in order to catch the cat on March 23, 2016. Sweetie was caught and rushed to the vet, Dr. Jennifer Jaax, at Pleasant Ridge Pet Hospital in Cincinnati where Sweetie had emergency surgery to literally put her mouth back together.

A hard object, such as a golf club, was used to strike Sweetie with such force that it swiped the side of her mouth, knocked out teeth, shattered the bone under her gums, dislodged her upper gums from the palette, and left her palette dislodged from the roof of her mouth and filled with infection. This cat suffered for over a week with this injury—unable to eat or drink. Bone fragments hanging from her mouth were removed, the open wound was cleaned of infection and other debris, and then the gums were stitched back together to the palette where the bone and teeth no longer existed. Dr. Jaax made new flaps for her gum and it took nearly 35 stitches to enclose the area. Sweetie ate the day after surgery!

Sweetie is now recovering with SCOOP. Her two week post op vet visit showed that she is healing very well! She also has responded positively to antibiotics for a respiratory infection.

4-13-16 Parvo puppies

Carolina German Sheperd Rescue Six now have parvo. Medical emergency and nightmare. This has the potential to sink my rescue. We cannot take on $5000 in medical bills. We do not have it. Of the ten pups surrendered to us, two have broken with parvo and another third suspected on the way to vet. I need help more right now than I ever have right now. These two are there now receiving treatment. Third on the way and who knows how many more will break with it. Please pray that none of the others break with it and that these two survive. Please consider donating so I can stay afloat. Or directly to vet. I am 501c3. Please share. Please tag. Please do anything you can. Thanks. Right now our goal is $5000 but that could climb depending on how many.

4-16-16 Zachary - urinating blood

I got a call from someone who had a cat who was urinating blood.  His owner is disabled and on a fixed income, with no money to spare.  We took him to the vet and determined that he had a severe bladder infection (Thankfully no stones or crystals).  He was sent home with antibiotics and special urinary food.  The bill was paid for by The Dollar Club and no other money is needed at this time.
4-18-16 Chloe - kitty with bladder stones

Chloe is a one year old calico kitty. Her best friend is a young boy with autism. They live with the boy's grandmother, who is recently widowed. Finances are tight, but they get by.  They got by. Then Chloe started having a pee issue. She was brought to the veterinarian, where an x-ray showed two huge stones taking up most of her bladder.  And that's when the vet called us. She got her boss to approve doing the surgery at $400 for Chloe, but for this family $400 might as well be $4,000,000. Chloe needs the surgery immediately if not sooner, and the office does not offer a billing plan. The vet hit me with a term I'd never heard before: Economic Euthanasia.  Oh Hell no! Not for the companion of an autistic kid being raised by his widowed grandmother.  Can you help? Donations can be phoned by credit card directly to the vet's office. Just say it's for Chloe's bladder surgery through West Side Cats!!  Edited to add: OK, I just talked to the vet's office. We are 1/4 of the way to Chloe's surgery! Chloe's last name is Mesaros, so when you call the vet's office just specify that it is for Chloe Meesaros!  Thank you so much, everybody! Please share this and remember no donation is too small! If 40 of us each pledge $10 Chloe will be saved and an autistic boy will keep his best friend!  (West side cats is a 501c3)

4-21-16 CHANCE dog attacked by another dog

While heading to the store, we noticed the police and ACO at a house. I stopped to see what was going on. The family's large dog had got in a fight with this little guy and sadly, this one lost We actually had to move the bed to get him, and when I saw him, I immediately rushed him to my vet. He had several wounds to his neck, so they gave him pain meds and got him stable. Once shaved and actually checked, the wounds were worse than thought. several were very deep and jaggered. He is still in the vet, due to some of the wounds having to be left open. His owners do not want him back. We need help with vetting. If anyone can help, we appreciate any we can get. Please share and remember, no amount is too small. every dollar helps these innocent creatures.
