Xaviers x-rays have been taken to a panel of orthopedic surgeons in California who are going over his chart at vet conference. His condition is very severe and the vets who have viewed him thus far in B.C. are unable to confirm if this surgery will in deed be the best thing for him or if amputation is a better option.
We are hoping to hear back from the specialists in California, we are taking this as far as we can to ensure we can do what is right for our little Xavier, if surgery is not an option we will have a custom hind leg set of wheels made for him, to ensure he can still get around with out any pain!

cross your fingers, and hope for good news!!

We will keep you posted!!
Thanks for all your support!

Xavier is now a 6 month old kitten, who came to us as a stray, he suffers from severe luxating patella's and requires surgery to live a pain free life, this condition gets worse with age, so the earlier we can do the surgery the better for this sweet little guy!
The quote from the specialist is $4500.00 per leg, after the surgery Xavier can live a long happy life and move like normal cats with out a life of pain and find a forever home!

The Richmond Animal Protection Society (RAPS) is a no-kill organization that operates two shelters in Richmond, British Columbia, including the RAPS Cat Sanctuary which is one of North America's largest with over 700 cats currently in our care our sanctuary runs with the help of our amazing volunteers, and by donations from the generous public.
 The other is the Richmond Animal Shelter (an open-admission shelter) which means that we never turn an animal away, including injured wildlife. At RAPS no animal is ever killed due to lack of space, treatable illness, physical defect, age, lack of training or bad behavior because we believe that every animal deserves a chance to be loved and cared for. RAPS has also worked for over 20 years to reduce pet overpopulation by spay and neuter initiatives such as trap, neuter, release and by providing low and no cost spay and neutering for the community.

With your help we can continue to help these animals in need. A little bit goes a long way! Please help us help Xavier!!
