Life Saving Surgery For Ripley

$825 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 37 people in 11 months
This is Ripley. For the past 6 months we've been taking care of her and her daughter Newt while looking for a forever home for them. She is a super friendly cat despite living on her own for a long time. But she is ready for a new home. Except for one thing.

We took her to the vet and found out she has a serious wound she'd been hiding under her leg. An injury that, if left untreated, will be fatal. Even in so much pain, she is still super friendly and never lashes out- even at the vet or when forced to take pills. But to heal her requires an expensive surgery- one the vet tells us needs to be done very soon (within a week would be ideal). Most potential adopters would likely not want to take on such a burden, and taking her to a shelter would get her euthanized instead of treated.

We want this sweet girl to have a chance at a loving home. So we turn to you for help. Any contributions would go directly to her surgery and giving her a chance at life. Please don't let this sweet life end too soon. She has so much love to give. Any amount will make a difference. And maybe her forever home will be with you. But she definitely needs a helping hand before that can happen.

Thank you for your help and please share this with any cat lovers you know. Together we can save Ripley.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed so far! Ripley is recovering well... but as the Governor says "You have to pay the bill!" We have about 10 days before we have to pay for the surgery and we still have a ways to go. Please donate if you can and share this with everyone you know... especially cat lovers! Everyone has been so supportive... we just need a bit more to get over the finish line!

Here's the situation on Ripley! She had the surgery yesterday... she's recovering well. Not happy with the cone, but what pet is? I'll be taking her back on Monday to have the drain removed and again in a couple weeks for removal of the sutures. I did finance the surgery to give more time for donations, so we still could use some help to pay for this. We're more than halfway there! Please share with friends! Every bit helps! And thank all of you who have already donated and shared! You are awesome!

We've reached more than half of the needed funds for Ripley's surgery. We have already scheduled it... she goes in tomorrow morning. We couldn't put it off any longer. We are working out financing so we have a bit longer to pay... please continue to share and donate! Good thoughts for tomorrow are appreciated!
