Iris & Braille eye surgeries

Iris and her equally gorgeous brother Braille came to us as kittens with serious eye issues.  They had been born without upper eyelids and their lashes were constantly rubbing against their corneas, causing painful  inflammation and infection.  

At the Montgomery County SPCA , we pride ourselves on providing vet care for treatable conditions.  Iris and Braille have each had several eye surgeries, which saved their vision and  greatly improved the quality of their lives.  But, even with rescue discounts, these surgeries have been expensive and came at a time when we have significant vet bills for other animals too.  

Please help us with the cost of these eye surgeries so we can help the next Iris & Braille!   

Founded in 1973, the MCSPCA is a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer organization that relies entirely on donations. We embrace the "no-kill" philosophy and our animals are cared for in foster homes until adopted.

As you can see, MCSPCA foster cat Iris likes to be right in the middle of the action! She and her brother Braille are happy, healthy cats now -- thanks to the surgeries that corrected painful eye deformities they were born with.
We are over half-way in our fundraising to pay for these surgeries. Can you help us get the rest of the way to our goal?

Happy New Year from Iris & Braille!

We got some wonderful year-end donations toward our gorgeous white duo's surgery expenses and we're now over half-way to our goal. If anyone would like to get a head start on their 2016 charitable tax deductions, the fund is still open for donations. :-)

Thank you again for your kindness in donating and/or spreading the word!

Hope everyone who celebrates Christmas had a lovely day! We are so grateful for the support we've gotten through this GoFundMe campaign. So far $2,215 in donations, which puts us *almost* half-way to our goal.

If anyone is looking to make a year-end donation (think TAX DEDUCTION!!), the MCSPCA is a 501(c)(3) charity and we survive solely on donations. We do **not** get funding from the ASPCA or the county. So please keep us in mind. :-)

We have now raised $1,265 of our $5,000 goal. Some year-end donations would really help move us closer to the finish line! The MCSPCA is a 501(c)(3) charity, so donations are tax-deductible.

Thank you to all who have donated and/or shared this appeal!
