People, look at what your thousand Dollars have done.
Three days ago this girl was in immeasurable pain. She was alone on the street, without food, without water, without shelter.
She was scared, she was lonely, she was hopeless.
When a lady who lives in the area trapped her, things appeared to start to be better. At least she has food, though it’s a cheap one. At least she has water, at least she has a shelter, though said shelter was a dog pen that must have smelled like hell for her.
Unfortunately, she was brought to see an incompetent vet who made her condition worse.
When I got her, I knew I was racing with time. She spent so much of her life trying to survive with meager resources, and her body was exhausted trying to hold off infection. On the other side, the holiday was coming. Businesses close, and so will vet offices for at least one week.
She didn’t have one week. She didn’t even have one day.
Then came this matching challenge that will save her life, and while we are helping her on-site, you paved the way for us. You made our effort possible, you give this girl the chance to reclaim her life. You give her the means to rebuild her future.
The cost for her surgery is USD 350, and the cost for the scalded cat’s treatment is USD 300. Matching the challenge gives us an extra USD 350 to provide adequate treatment for her post-operation; it also gave us enough to buy food for the shelter. For two months now the cats only have enough to eat once a day, but with the remaining USD 300 from the matching challenge they can then have enough to eat twice a day, at least for this week.
Thank you so much, all of you. Thank you beyond what words can convey. Thank you for giving this little girl her life back. Thank you for giving her the chance she deserves.
We need USD 600 to provide food and amenities for 160 resident cats in our sanctuary; most of them have permanent disabilities or terminal illnesses. We ended last week with USD 300 (out of USD 400 from my salary) We hope you can still be with us this week and help us raise enough to deliver this little girl toward full recovery.
