Milo's Emergency Medical Fund

We have recently taken in some very hard and extreme medical cases. These beautiful cats would have died on the streets or in the shelter if we hadn't have stepped in.

The veterinarian bills have been staggering for these precious souls and we are reaching out to you our Milo's family for some help. Let us tell you about each kitty:

Little Lou is only 12 weeks old and at only 6 weeks he was visciously attacked by a dog and when he was found he was taken to a high kill shelter. We rescued him and thought the abscess he was left with from the attack was the only damage but that wasn't all we found out was wrong. He was dripping urine consistently. The vets discovered that in the attack his urethra had been crushed and had strictures from scar tissue. He had the surgery and is now in the hospital recouperating. We hope for a full recover for this little tiny guy.

Clover is a 12 year old purebred British Shorthair, she too was pulled on her last day at a kill shelter. She had ear mites, terrible URI and her nails had grown into the pads of her paws and her mouth is so bad she cannot eat without pain. She's currently at our veterinarian getting care and will be having a dental early next week.

Patches was rescued by a kind man who was feeding strays at the local airport. He noticed Patches nose and got him to his own vet, the test results came back positive for cryptococcus (you can read about it here: he is currently at our vet undergoing treatment. He's not eating so we may have to place a feeding tube until the medications start working. The medications he has to be on for at least 6 months and cost $200/month as well as regular vet visits and blood tests.

Basil was also rescued from a high kill shelter. Dumped their by his humans. He became terribly ill with a shelter URI and spent over a week at our vets being treated. He came home but had a continued issue with a URI partially because of his deformed (but adorable) nose. He underwent surgery this week to hopefully make the nostrils bigger so he can breathe easier.

Ginger was brought to our veterinarians office by a good samaritan who saw her on the street with her nose bloody and odd shaped. We agreed to take her and like Patches (and our boy Skimble) she tested positive for cryptococcus. She will be on the same medications/protocol as Patches, again her medications will be about $200/month with frequent vet visits.

Every dollar is deeply and greatly appreciated. We cannot rescue these angels without you and without Milo's these cats would have died on the streets or in the shelter. Now they have a second chance at a new life but only if we can continue our mission to save injured, sick, cats with birth defects, seniors and those that have been abused. Please help by sharing this and again every single cent will go to their care and is tax deductible.

Thank you!
