Thaddeus's Knee Surgeries


Thaddeus is a friendly 1 ½ year old male cat. He loves to be held and petted.

Even with his sweet personality, he was abandoned at a local animal hospital. After noticing that he had difficulty walking on his rear legs, x-rays were taken of his hindquarters and legs. The x-rays and an examination by Dr. Vogt, a veterinarian surgeon, revealed that he has congenital bilateral luxated patellas. Essentially, Thaddeus’ kneecaps are in the wrong place and make it extremely painful for him to walk. He desperately needs surgery.


Your donation will get Thaddeus the medical help he needs! Over the next few months, Thaddeus will undergo two surgeries, physical therapy, and lots of TLC. Your help will give him back a good quality of life and make him ready for his forever home!

We can’t do it without your help!

No amount is too small. Even $10 or $25 will help get us to our goal of $7,000.
