How many pets did this grant help?


Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.

Kissa was found in the middle of a major highway in the pouring rain. The people who picked her up called one of our Purr Partners volunteers and asked if we could take her. This volunteer took Kissa to our vet, and it was obvious from her injuries that she had been thrown from a moving car. One of her eyes was severely damaged and there was road rash on her face, plus one side of her face was deformed. She was also very sick with an upper-respiratory infection. The vet treated her with antibiotics and recommended removal of her eye. We had to wait until she was four months old so she could safely be sedated long enough to remove the eye. The surgery went well, and after a period of recovery, she has been adopted into a wonderful forever home.
