Madaac’s FIV Fundraiser

$150 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 4 people in 10 months
My name is Tara and I’m looking for help to pay for my cats surgery. His name is Madaac. I adopted him from an agency where I was told and given paper work regarding his upper respiratory issues, scratched corneas, FIV positive and was told he was missing most of his teeth due to the FIV virus. 
The facility told me he was fine and there were no other known issues. Madaac was there for 1 month and when he was given to me he was skin and bones. This means he was not eating well. Per the facility it was due to stress. 
On the first day I had him I noted he was responding in pain while eating. How did the facility not know this? I called them and they said he was just agitated from meds he was forced to take. A few days later I noticed blood in his mouth and an odor so I called to schedule a vet appt. the day before his vet appt blood was dripping out of his mouth along with brown discharge. 
When his vet took a look they noticed he had roots exposed in his mouth and teeth brown below the gum line. This was not fresh or something that happened after I adopted him. The facility never disclosed this. I have a scheduled surgery for him for 8/10 to remove the rest of his teeth. He will never have to suffer dental pain again and we can go on focusing on just keeping him safe from other things associated with FIV.
The surgery is 380.00 at Greenfield veterinary Clinic in Greenfield/Milwaukee Wisconsin on 27th Street. Phone number is 414-282-5230
If donations run over the amount I’m working towards then I have discussed with the vet clinic to have funds left in Madaac’s account to go towards other owners who are stuck in a tough spot as well. By giving you all this info it allows you to call the clinic and verify for yourself that this surgery will be taking place and the cost of this surgery. You can donate directly to them without concern of me running off with free money considering this is not an organization fund me account. 
If 400 people can donate 1.00 we will me this goal! Please help. Madaac needs your help as well. Other pets in need could benefit from the donations as well. 
I thank you and Madaac thanks you!

Madaac has gone through a lot since his surgery. He’s had his ups and downs and I’m still not giving up on him because he hasn’t given up. I recently switched his vet since it’s so much closer. We are going all in this time around and I’m not walking out of the clinic with out stronger meds, probiotics and what ever he needs. The blood tests alone will cost around 250.00 not including the vet visit and new meds we need for his eyes. If you can help towards anything it would be great. Otherwise his vet is the Bayshore Veterinary Clinic in Shorewood, WI. You can call and ask to put towards Madaac’s account directly. If we can find 300 people to donate 1.00 this would cut a lot of expenses so I can focus on his monthly meds. Madaac is a fighter and he always pushing harder. His appetite has grown and his energy has picked up some but we recently noticed him limping up the stairs and with all the meds going into his eyes we believe he might be losing his sight as well. As long as the vets continue to say he is not suffering then as I said before we will keep fighting for this handsome lil prince. Please help me fight for him

Antibiotics are clearly working well in his system. This is the first time I have seen him jumping up on random tables. The teeth are still causing random shocks of pain but less now that the infection is getting under control.
