Sal's Surgery - Cruelty Case
Homeward Bound WV urgently needs your help to save a stray and get him the surgery he desperately needs!
One of our dedicated pet fosters searched for days for a stray after being alerted the cat might be injured--likely a pet that was abandoned in her neighborhood. Finally he resurfaced and she was able to capture him and take him to the vet for assessment. It turns out his injuries were quite extensive including a severe fracture above his back left knee, a broken tooth, and he had been shot with a pellet gun (pellets still inside show up on the x-ray!). It's undetermined if these injuries are related in any way, but we do know Sal hasn't had a very happy life in his days on the street.
But, even though humans haven't been kind to him, he's still incredibly sweet and friendly after everything he's been through. He behaves so well even though he must be in a lot of pain.
Sal's surgery has been scheduled immediately and it's going to be a HUGE expense for the rescue. We will do everything we can to make sure this guy has a chance to be a healthy, spoiled cat with a family who loves him. So, we're asking for your help!
PLEASE DONATE TO SAL. We rely on public donations and grants to care for pets in our foster homes and 100% of your donations go directly to the animals! Sal is so deserving of a second chance! Please donate (there's no donation too small) and share his story with others!
Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause.

"I don’t know if I’ve ever met a more grateful ex-street cat. Sal has just been a dream to have. He loves to cuddle, play and lick you like a dog. He has had absolutely no interest in returning to the outside world. He loves his new life being an indoor-only kitty and enjoys his new kitty and puppy buddies! His leg is healing up very well! I’ve even caught him sprinting though the house!
Sal’s GoFundMe is still collecting donations from his surgery costs. The rescue took a huge financial hit trying to save Sal’s life and there are still many more out there that need help. Please donate or share! Thank you!"
Sal's recovery following extensive surgery to remove gun pellets and reconstruct his left hind leg has been going well. He’s still only putting slight pressure on his leg but is otherwise getting around great! He’s even jumping up on couches and the bed. His improvements have allowed him to meet and interact with the rest of his foster family including human and furry siblings. He's adjusted to being a house cat PERFECTLY! He seeks out attention from his caregivers and is an overall sweet, loving guy and SO deserving of his 2nd chance!
