Extraordinary Care

Above and beyond care requires loving hearts and donations to enable these extraordinary needs to be met.

Willoughby

Feral guy with a gash on it’s neck

Update 11/22/22:

Our feral colony caretakers have definitely seen it all injured and sick animals recently.  Cats that live in these colonies get fed by FHS but getting medical treatment is just beyond our means to provide.  These cats have a very hard life and we try to help them as best we can.

This big boy has a big gash on his neck.  Our colony caretaker is trying to trap him to get him to the vet for treatment.

If you have a heart for these cats which have a very hard life, please consider donating to his surgical costs.  We estimate his surgical needs to be around $400

Save SommerSomerby

One last chance for SommerSomerby

Update 11/4/22:

We found out more information about Sommer – turns out – he as found around Peachtree City Somerby Assisted living community.  The residence fell in love with him so we’re going to call him Somerby.

He still can’t decide between head butts and food and is very affectionate.  One of his ailments is Rodent Ulcers (read more) which is treatable but is a nasty infection and may require surgery to get his jaws in working order.

Sommer was originally brought to the vet for euthanasia but then Sommer started interacting with other cats and headbutting the staff for attention.  He has a hard time deciding if he likes being pet or being fed.

He was put on antibiotics and other medications yesterday and will be reevaluated on Tuesday 11/1/22.  We are asking for two things, 1st we need donations to help with his constant medical care and 2nd a willing foster home with no other pets in the home which is calm with low activity.

Sommer has medical issues but his spirit is 110%. He needs constant medical support right now to make an anticipated recovery. Without this care, he doesn’t have a future.

Mirabel has another surgery! 

Her story:

It’s been almost ten months since the devestating bite wound which almost cost her her life. Now she is almost full grown and we have been keeping an eye on her scar. As she has grown, it has stretched pretty badly over her left eye. So much so, that she can’t use that eye. It’s pulling her nose and the upper part of her right eye to the left and it is causing a few issues- when she sleeps in certain positions, she cannot close her eye!

So she is getting essentially a plastic surgery with the veterinary ophthalmologist to release tension in the scar around her eye.

So let’s get her scar “fixed” and Mirabel ready to find a new home! 

We have been quoted $2500-3000 for the surgery and it’s scheduled for mid-October. We need funds to allow us to do the surgery!

Pepper

Let’s get rid of these bladder stones!

Pepper is a little girl who came to us last week with her housemate due to no fault of their own, and while they have been doing well, something seemed wrong with Pepper- she was squatting to pee all the time! 

One X-ray later and we found out why- she is FULL of bladder stones! Pepper needs these removed, both for her own comfort and because if she reaches the point that she can’t pee, then that’s a big medical emergency! 

We need you help!

We have been estimated that surgery will cost about $700-1000 to remove her stone and get her one the road to recovery.

Can you help us?

Puddin

Poor, Poor, Puddin

We have a lady we have been working with trying to help her since May.  As it turns out, Puddin needs to have a dental procedure and our regular community assistance vet cannot do it.

We were able to find another vet which can do the surgery but the cost is going to be around $1,200. We originally agreed to pay up to $500 for her and if more was needed, we would turn to you for help.

The owner has saved $300 towards the surgery herself, so we need $400 to get Puddin the dental surgery she needs.  Can you help?

Puddin’s mom writes:

Puddin is 9 years old angel. She came to me when she was roughly 3 years old from Fayette Humane Society.  She had a rocky past, as you could tell she had lots of freshly healed wounds, was extremely timid, and looked like she had just made it through whatever was ailing her thanks to Fayette Humane. At the time I had had my job for year or 2 and was confident on staying for a while as it was a recently booming business and I was doing really well. While i was doing well financially, I managed to keep a decent money flow and I was able to take care of everything in my life care-free. I was steadily getting more hours as well as bonuses. Life was sweet.

Then came covid. Again, I was doing well for a while but business slowly started to slow down and the doors eventually closed for good. I was devasted.

So with my last but of my savings account I paid off whatever bills I could in advance, and i made sure Puddin was continuing to be spoiled rotten with regular vet visits, dental treatments etc.

One of the last big investments I made was into Puddin’s teeth. She had to have about 5 or 6 teeth pulled, and other various dental related procedures and upkeep.

That was 2020, and after the doors to my job closed i didn’t get hired at a different job until late 2021.

I can’t work full time any longer, as it was affecting my home life as well as my 2 children. I make “okay” money now but it’s nowhere near what I was making before at my old job.

Now I’m in debt, and once again Puddin needs more dental treatments, and I’m scared to death. One of her canines needs to be removed, which is connected to her sinuses which complicates the entire procedure and makes it 10x more expensive.

Puddin is a healthy happy girl outside of this and my goal is to give her the life that any animal deserves and I am so guilty for not being able to provide for her in that way currently.
