Wanted to give everyone an update on Leo! It's been a long road for this little one. The surgery went well but there was a reaction/infection that followed the surgery to put in the plates and screws. It took a few weeks of treatment for this to finally get better. But, in the meantime his leg has healed beautifully! Last week he began putting weight on the leg. The next day after putting weight on the leg, he figured out he could run!! He is now using his leg/paw normally and is running and playing with his feline friend - and the foster mom has decided to adopt him! He is so attached to their other cat that they do not want to separate them - and of course, they have fallen in love with this little guy. We were hoping to get a video of him up but he now won't sit still long enough for that :) Thank you everyone for helping to make this little miracle happen!!!

Little Leo needs your help!
Leo came into our shelter with a severely deformed back paw. It makes it hard for him to walk. He has been seen by an orthopedic specialist and there are only two options for him - either remove the leg or reposition the bones with plates so he can walk normally. We want Leo to be able to walk normally and have use of all FOUR of his legs/paws. He is a sweatheart and has a purr for everyone he meets. He doesn't know he has a handicap and we want to fix it so he won't have one.

The orthopedic specialist has agreed to discount the surgery to reposition the bones and install the plates. Even with this discount, plus the cost of x-rays and care, the cost is $1,900.00. We need your help to get the funds we need to help Leo.

Please consider a donation to our shelter for Leo. All funds raised through this campaign will help with medical costs.

Through adoption, spay/neuter, wellness clinics, training, educational outreach, and a pet food pantry we help nearly 10,000 pets a year. This is a very expensive endeavor to help so many and we need your help on this special little one!
