Piper's Broken Leg

$800 of $800 goal

Raised by 4 people in 23 months
Piper is an 8 month old teen age kitten, and was turned into Animal Control with a broken back leg.  Animal Control is investigating for possible abuse.  Meanwhile Piper was examined by a vet.  The leg is badly broken - with multiple factures in the bone, not just a clean break.  So the vet recommended two surgeries - the first to put a pin in the leg to let the bone start to heal, and the second surgery to remove the pin and let the bone heal completely.  Meanwhile, the risk is very high that Piper could break the bone again if she was allowed to do normal activates like run and jump, and therefore in order to save the leg, she must be kept in a 3 foot by 4 foot crate for 6 to 8 more weeks.  While it breaks our heart to keep her in this crate, we at the Fayette Humane Society have known of previous cases where the animal was allowed to run too soon, the bone re-broke, and the leg had to amputated.  She has her whole life in front of her to run, but in order to save her leg, we must do this for now.  The vet has done the first surgery already, and in the end of June or early July the vet will do the second surgery (plus the spay).  Piper is very sweet and her foster family opens the cage and rubs her little head on a regular basis, so she knows she is well loved.  That is the only way to cuddle right  now and not risk injuring the leg.  Once she is healthy and ready to be adopted, we will place her with a super sweet family - we want to make sure she gets enough cuddling in the future to make up for the rough time she had in the past and the tough time she is going thru right now.

The FHS, staffed entirely by volunteers, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and is supported entirely by individual and corporate donations. Because we do not have a shelter, all of the animals we rescue live in temporary foster homes until they are adopted. We believe that all companion pets have intrinsic value and should be treated with the reverence and care they deserve.

Piper has had two surgeries: the first was to repair the broken leg by attaching metal rods to the bones. She had to be kept in a crate for two months to allow the bones to mend. The second surgery was to remove the metal rods. She is doing great! Unfortunately, she has to be crated for a little longer to allow the leg to heal and strengthen. Very soon, she will be ready for adoption. Piper is so sweet and is ready to enjoy running and playing again.

Thanks to all who have contributed to help us pay for her care. We still need to pay her bills so if you can contribute, it will help us continue to care for cats and kittens like Piper.
