10–3-13 Ginky - Kitten with broken femur
Ginky is 6 months old and has sustained a serious injury to his leg. He has a broken femur and he needs expensive surgery. His mom has been trying everything to raise the money to save him. Unfortunately, we are very low on funds and are working to pay off a huge bill for vet care and spay/neuter from the beginning of the year. The price for Ginky's surgery was quoted as $1700.00. We are getting a second opinion, but orthopedic surgery is expensive.
Note that your donation is for Ginky and that it comes from a member of The Dollar Club.

10-04-13 Franklin - tiny kitten hit by car
Tiny Franklin was hit by a car! Hehad a severe degloving injury that has been stitched closed, but he has a SEVERELY twisted leg as you can see in this picture, and it is very swollen!!! Too swollen in fact to even xray at this point. He was given a shot for pain and antibiotics for infection, he has to go back in a few days once the swelling goes down to re evaluate and see what we can do with him. He is very sweet and deserves to live! Donations are going to be needed to provide the necessary care and treatments he will need to help him make a full recovery. He has a long road ahead of him..

10-11-13 Lucky - Tiny kitten with dislocated shoulder and intestinal problems
He was found alone the day he was born w/the sac still attached to him on a friends porch. His formula is too rich for him and has been changed and is being closely monitored. His shoulder is dislocated and he isn't pooping on his own at all. He will need further diagnostic testing to make sure his intestines are ok and he doesn't have any birth defects. He is being fed every 4 hours and kept on a heating pad. We need lots of prayers because we are not giving up on him.

10-12-13 Little Dude Max - very sick puppy
Little dude max was stolen as a puppy and found 5 months later. Suffering from an ear infection, skin infection/dermatitis, flea and tape worm infestation, kennel cough and missing 3/4 of his hair! The kennel Cough developed into pneumonia and he was rushed to Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty Emergency Clinic where he was immediately admitted into Intensive Care! He was given IV fluids and antibiotics, and Oxygen tubes were stitched into his nose and head, after he got a tracheal wash! Our poor baby was literally fighting for his life! We had just gotten him back after all these months of worrying, we were heart sick worrying about him all night. Just two night in intensive care cost close $3,000! Plus he needs follow up X-rays, blood work, meds, etc to ensure his recovery. We will do everything to save this boy.

10-16-13 Butterball - cat beaten with a bat
Butterball appears to have been beaten by a baseball bat. She is hanging on but actually looks a little worse. Some of the swelling in her brain and ruptured eye has gone down but the crushed and broken bones in her head has caused infection and more swelling. Because her jaw is broken she still has to be syringe fed every day. However, despite the beating she took at the hands of a human she is still just so sweet. She likes being petted and will stand to rub against your hand as you pet her. She truly is precious!

10-23-13 Ivy - severely neglected kitten Located in England (Beloved Ivy has passed away)
Ivy had a very poor start in life, which saw her mother and litter mates pass away due to severe neglect. Because of severe scarring and wounds around her ears and tail, we have reason to believe that they have been tampered with - either for aesthetic purposes or through cruelty. Ivy, sadly, is failing to thrive as it is at the moment, and has been moved to foster care in the hopes that very intensive care will help this girl blossom. She is likely to need a lot of medicinal help and veterinary care in the coming weeks and months. Little Ivy has been to see the vet and been given a checkup and a jab to assist with getting over the cold she has, after some examination of ears and tail its thought she has ischemic necrosis, this is, Necrosis caused by hypoxia resulting from local deprivation of blood supply. it can be caused by a few things but the vet is inclined to believe its from thermal or chemical burns.
As a result of this once Ivy is 100% assured free of the cold she has and is settled down she will need BOTH ears cutting and the dead flesh removing and the tip of her tail will have to be amputated

10-24-13 Texas Siamese Rescue - desperately need funds to remain open
The original founder died 2 summers ago, leaving 200+ cats, unpaid bills/tax returns behind. A huge MESS to sort out but we did. Paid everything we could, one by one; reduced the cat population by 50%; caught up on medical needs, became a cage-free facility. The new directors even went as far as selling their mobile home, moved INTO the rescue, so to use the proceeds of the sale to fund operations, feed cats & keep the dream alive. But - then we found out about the secret 2nd mortgage. The founder had borrowed against the property; owing $244k on it. So, we scrambled again, sending what we could to the private lender in NY who holds the deed. A year ago, he made us an offer: raise $40k of the $244k by year's end, & he'd forgive/write off the rest; we would own TXSR free & clear. Working our collective butts off we got to work. By Dec. 2012, we still had a long way to go. The lender generously gave us 1 more year. But ONLY 1 more. it's all due by this Dec. 31st or we hand the place over Jan.1, 2014. NO exceptions. We've since raised a LOT more; but still need 8k or so - in 2 months! Otherwise, we'll have to clear off belongings & people immediately (and 2 wonderful women will be homeless). Animal control no doubt will be next to arrive, to "take care of the rest" - we simply don't have enough places to move 100+ kittens & cats. The thought of their fate at the local pound is unbearable; these are cats we've promised a new life to, grown to love (some of them have been with us for many years), each of them with their own quirks & personalities & adored as if they were our personal pets. 2 months til deadline & no more extensions. Looking back, any sane person would've probably tossed in the towel & said "forget it!" 2 years ago. Each day brought another new crisis to fix/deal with/pay for. We've cut all the corners we can financially. We continue fundraising. even when donations seem scarce. Because a promise is a promise & every cat here deserves to have that promise kept. That's why all of us stayed.
