Help Raven get Surgery

UPDATE 12/19: we got raven out of the ACC today and went to the vet where they examined here and said she would be okay! she’s going to heal for a few weeks until she goes for another check up to see if it is going good or if there is anything more serious going on. They scared me thinking to get her back it would be thousands, which it wasn’t so i’m so thankful for that. i couldn’t have done it without all the support from all of you and the donations♥️ I’m stopping the donations right here, everything all together was around 500$ and I payed out of pocket today because i didn’t have time to withdraw the money (which would have gone to my moms account then she would have to send back to me) but I’ll keep this saved up for the upcoming appointments she has or if she needs something more serious done. again thank you all ♥️♥️♥️ I will also post the receipts from the hospital once i get home. ORIGINAL POST: WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Raven is my little Tuxedo kitten in possible need of an emergency jaw surgery. I rescued Raven when she was 3-4 Weeks old. Abandoned by her mom I had to bring her to school with me and make sure she bottle fed every 3 hours. I took care of her everyday from then on and she has become like my daughter. I lost Raven 12/14 while i was at work, i soon realized it was because i accidentally left the window open and she likes to climb out to the fire escape. I looked all over for her, i posted on multiple websites i checked craigslist , went around my neighborhood calling for her. I posted her on nextdoor where many people gave me advice and even tried to look around for her too. I went to animal care and control on Monday (i worked all Sunday) and she wasn’t there. the search continues with me looking at 2 am for her while having finals the next day and putting fliers around the block. Today I go to the ACC and she’s there but they tell me her jaw is broken from the fall. They told estimated the amount it would take for me to take her out which somehow came to be $430 (this is an estimate and i’m not exactly sure why it’s that much, i’ll ask tomorrow). Then they tell me they did take her to the SPCA when they brought her in so i went to get an estimate of how much that visit cost and they told me almost $400. After i would take her out of the ACC they told me i would have to take her to the emergency room which is already $115 plus everything they will do which they estimated would probably cost between $1,000-3,000 all together. We don’t know what exactly will happen in the emergency room if she will have to have her jaw wired (they said that’s about $1k) or not. I’m heartbroken because i am only 17, i do work part time because i’m in high school, but that’s barely enough to cover me taking her out of the ACC. My mom recently moved away also so i’m living on my own, she’s willing to help me but again we’re not sure how much everything is. I know this is hard but i don’t want to surrender her, she is already bonded to my 2 other cats and she’s been with me her whole little life, and is scared of new people. I’m asking for help if anyone can please help me bring her home, if you have a pet you know how heartbreaking this all is, especially for me to have to worry about money like this just to keep my baby. Anything would really help, i’m so lost because i don’t have that kind of money on me and i just want her home with us as soon as possible.
