So it came as a shock on March 8th when Neko suffered a freak injury to his back when he dislocated a disc that pushed against his spinal cord and paralyzed his hind legs. After consulting with a Vet, the only options were emergency spinal surgery or putting him down. Understandably, Vanessa decided to give Neko a second chance rather than putting him down. The successful and remarkable surgery was carried out within a few days and Neko is on his way back to recovery. His hind legs are still weak and he requires daily therapy and medication. It’s going to take time and effort but Neko is going to be able to walk again and that in itself is a miracle.
We feel blessed about the good news about Neko's progress, however the surgery and medical care is a big financial burden for Vanessa and her family. I have decided to make a financial appeal among the Burgos and Torres families and all of our wonderful friends to help raise funds to help cover the medical expenses for Neko. The fund raising goal is $4000 which will cover most of the cost for Neko's surgery and medical treatment.
As a pet owner ourselves, and many of you are as well, I have faith that you understand why Vanessa decided to give Neko a second chance.
Any monitory gift you are able to give, no matter the amount is greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance and may God Bless you all!
