Cats Meow Feline Fosters, Inc.: Emergency Medical Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
An Emergency Medical Grant in the amount of $920 was used toward corrective eyelid surgery for a male kitten named Simon.
The corrective eyelid surgery was needed for Simon so that he would be comfortable, and so that his vision would allow him to enjoy his life. It also made him adoptable.
How many pets did this grant help?
Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Simon came to us from the local animal control officer after he was surrendered to the shelter. At that time, shelter intake was closed, so he came directly to us. A local vet could have corrected a condition called entropion, but Simon’s condition was eyelid agenesis, which required him to see a veterinary office that specializes in disorders and diseases of animal eyes. Following his recovery and follow-up with the veterinarian after the surgery, Simon was adopted!
The surgery has allowed Simon to see better so that he can run and play in comfort.
