Meet Chubbs! He is the most adorable, fat kitty that we have ever met. His owner lost his home and was living in a car. Chubbs had a long term condition called megacolon that could not be managed. Sadly because of his owner's situation, Chubbs was left to die in a friend's basement. The owner called us for weeks asking for help with his dying kitty. For weeks we offered to take him in, most likely for euthanasia to end his suffering.
When he arrived to us, he had lost 9 lbs (a whole cat!) and weighed in at a mere 27.7 lbs. He was in such a sad state. Still sweet, but quiet very uncomfortable and unable to walk.
After a few moments of thought and trying to decide what would be best for Chubbs, we made the decision to take him straight to surgery and give him a chance. That evening, he underwent a radical surgery to remove the diseased colon. For the next 4 weeks, it was not a pretty sight as the body learned to adapt. To put it politely, Chubbs could never be too far from his litterbox.
Today, he is doing so well. His personality is incredibly sweet. He is able to walk and has even a 'light' step when it's dinner time. Enjoy this video of him getting his daily weigh-in!
Thank you for all of your support to these dear creatures.

Moonshine presented to us through the ER; pregnant with a broken leg and left in an apartment for an unknown period of time as the people had moved. She smelled very heavy of cigarette smoke. Her blood work showed dehydration incompatible with life! However, her babies were determined to still be alive on ultrasound and likely about 45 days old. This small video is not very exciting. She was tremoring due to very high levels of potassium as a result of dehydration but otherwise showing no movement. We hope to show you improvement over the next 72 hours. Thank you for helping us help pets like Moonshine.

Topaz arrived to us the other evening in terrible condition from another ER. He was passed around between family members, became ill and was brought to an ER in MA for euthanasia. The staff there called to see if we could please take him in. We reaching out to you to see if you can please help us with him. On ultrasound exam it was found that Topaz had many stones blocking his bile duct. This was causing him to be very yellow and sick. Dr. Gordon was contacted yesterday and arrived early this morning wearing her flowing yellow cape with the letter 'S' (for surgeon) and quickly got to work. She removed 7 stones! Topaz received a blood transfusion from our hospital cat Pilgrim (she was abandoned at our facility Thanksgiving day about 5 years ago!) and is in ICU now. We have our fingers crossed for him. He's a lovely boy.

Larry presented to the ER (for the 3rd time) for urinary obstruction due to stones. In simple terms, he could not pee. To be quite honest, we were very surprised that Larry was still alive having been taken out of the ER 2 months ago while having almost complete urinary obstruction. Last evening Larry was taken to surgery to relieve the obstruction and remove the stones. Unfortunately Larry's kidney values were too high to register. We are hopeful that this is a temporary issue related to the blockage.

Thank you for helping Larry!

WOW!! Great news for Molly and her Dad!! I'm so pleased to see such a response from everyone. I was thinking maybe the left over funds could be put aside and used for other Vets and their pets! They have done so much for all of us and deserve our thanks and support when they need it. Happy Holidays to all Vets and thank you so much for your service to this country and the sacrifices you and your families have made. Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!!
