You Helped Save These Adorable Cats

Chiarra was found with a ruptured eye.

Your donation to the Petfinder Foundation’s Emergency Medical Fund has helped countless sick and injured pets — including these four adorable kitties!

Chiarra
The sweet 5-month-old kitten was found alone in a Pennsylvania parking lot, one eye ruptured due to infection and the other in bad shape. Taken in by Cherished Cats Rescue Alliance in Lewisburg, PA, Chiarra received good nutrition and care and, with help from our grant, surgery to remove the ruptured eye and repair the remaining one. After recovering, she was quickly adopted by a local family. Read Chiarra’s full story here.

Foster was abandoned in a box with a broken pelvis.

Foster
Foster was abandoned in a box in a vacant lot. He was cold, thirsty, hungry, and terribly injured. Paws of Hope in Stevensville, MI, rescued him and took him to the vet, where x-rays revealed that he had a broken pelvis and dislocated femur, most likely from being hit by a car. With help from our grant, Foster had a complicated surgery to treat his injuries. Three months later, he was adopted, and is thriving today. Read Foster’s full story here.

Marvel was thrown out of a moving car.

Marvel
Marvel was cruelly thrown out of a moving car, injuring his front leg. Under the care of Happy Tails Rescue in Chatham, VA, it became clear that the leg would require surgery, as Marvel was dragging it and it was becoming swollen and abraded. Our grant enabled Marvel to get his foot repaired to prevent pain and further injury. Today, he’s been adopted and can now walk normally, run, play and jump. Marvel has been adopted! Read Marvel’s full story here.

One of Gypsy’s rear feet was missing.

Gypsy
The 6-month-old long-haired calico was brought to Helotes Humane Society in San Antonio, TX, because her owners could not afford the care she needed. She’d been found with one of her rear feet missing and the other partially gone. The shelter’s vet said Gypsy needed part of her leg amputated to relieve her pain. Thanks to our grant, Gypsy got the surgery she needed and was adopted soon thereafter. She doesn’t let her disability hamper her life, and enjoys lots of love and affection in her new home. Read Gypsy’s full story here.
