Ralphie's Surgery Fund

Ralphie is an 8 week old kitten who I have been fostering and bottle fed after his mother rejected him at 2 weeks old. Ralphie was born with a congenital condition called pectus excavatum. His chest is narrowed and his sternum is caved in. His heart is pushed all the way over to the left side and he does not have full function of his lungs. He needs surgery to expand his chest so that he will be able to breathe easier and live a normal life! The surgery rate is excellent with very few risks involved, the main risk being the anesthesia in such a young kitten. He will need this surgery done when he is 12 weeks old. My family has adopted Ralphie and is committed to helping him after the shelter refused to do anything further. We were quoted $1,500 for his surgery and it will be done by a very experienced surgeon who has done many pectus excavatum surgeries. Please help us help Ralphie!
