MEET THADDEUS

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.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

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.

Thaddeus is doing outstanding! He is moving around well with his right leg and loves to play. His newfound freedom of mobility has only made him more loving it seems.

This little guy is almost ready for his second surgery. The video below helps show what a big difference his surgery made! Can you help us fund the second one?

7/12/17 Update! Thaddeus had his first surgery yesterday! He is now recuperating at his foster parent's home. Here's what they had to say:

"Home from the hospital. Dr Vogt was pleased with the surgery. Knee is now in position from the 90% it was off. Bone cut, ligament tear repaired, new groove for his knee cap made and 3 pins placed in leg.
Thaddeus is now in step down at volunteer's private room. 6 wks of restrictions in the pet play pen. He did eat tonight."

Way to go Thaddeus! Just one more surgery to go! We still need your help to cover the cost of his surgery. Our entire budget comes from fundraisers and donations throughout the year! Thank you to everyone who has donated!
