Sweet Pea came to me one day in my yard. I found her sitting under my holly tree. She wouldn’t come to me so I had to trap her. I put her in a dog cage and we got to know each other pretty well in a couple of days. I noticed by then she was holding her hind right leg so I made an appointment at my vet’s office of Phoenixville Animal Hospital. I requested to see Dr. Thompson, she sees all my cats. She checked her over and discovered on her front right arm there were lacerations and abscesses. She then took an x-ray of the leg and found out that it was fractured.
To fix her leg or to amputate whichever we find best for her would cost at least $1,200 to $1,500 estimated. The doctor knows that I do not have that kind of money. I am just a small Rescue and I want what is best for Sweet Pea. I was sad that I couldn’t afford to pay for the surgery. The owner of the hospital, Dr. Galligher, suggested to call the Chester County SPCA. She talked to a fellow named Adam of the Board of Directors and they spoke for some time. Then, I was asked to talk to him and he told me that he would take on the case and all I needed to do was raise some money to pay for the surgery. I was so happy that they would do it and also only would cost me $600. So as of today, Sweet Pea has made a full recovery within 12 weeks in a dog crate, 2 weeks in re-hab in my kitchen, and the best I saved for last, she got a forever home. So whoever dumped this sweet little cat at my home, thank you! She is now with parents who will lvoe her and will take care of her for the rest of her life.
Thank you Dr. Thompson, Dr. Galligher, and Adam for your help.
