Crazy Cats Animal Rescue: Emergency Medical Grant Report

How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?

The $882.76 emergency medical grant from the Petfinder Foundation was used for the veterinary evaluation of Bravo, a tiny kitten found alone and with terrible eye infections. Bravo was examined by the veterinarian used most often by our rescue and by a board-certified veterinary ophthalmologist. It was determined that Bravo's eyes needed to be removed and the Petfinder Foundation grant covered the expenses associated with this surgery.

This Petfinder Foundation grant enabled Crazy Cats to save a helpless kitten who desperately needed veterinary attention to survive. As a no-kill rescue, being able to provide the best care for our animals is at the heart of our mission. Bravo recovered beautifully and is now available for adoption.

Bravo was found as a tiny kitten in a mall parking lot by a good Samaritan. He was alone and had horrible infections in both eyes. Crazy Cats Animal Rescue was called to his rescue. We immediately took Bravo to our veterinarian for an exam. Our vet referred Bravo to board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists. We were advised that Bravo’s eyes had ruptured and would need to be removed. The specialists believe that Bravo has never been able to see and darkness is all he has ever known. His survival is miraculous. He was fostered by the director of Crazy Cats, where he ate well, grew fast, and became very social. Happily, Bravo is otherwise healthy and has an excellent chance for a great life in the right adoptive family. When he was big enough, Bravo was neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and became available for adoption on Petfinder (you can meet him here). An Emergency Medical Grant from the Petfinder Foundation made it possible for Bravo to get the best possible care for his eyes. Thank you, Petfinder Foundation, for your trust in Crazy Cats and for your support of Brave, a brave, spunky survivor who has stolen our hearts.

UPDATE Feb. 1, 2020: “Our boy Bravo was adopted this weekend! It has been six months and a lot of care, but I’m happy to say he’s finally found his forever home. I’d like to say thank you to all of our supporters who donated to his care when we took him in and to the Petfinder Foundation for his emergency medical grant that allowed his visits to the specialists and his eye enucleation surgery.”
