Urgent: Help Us Save Frank

We urgently need funds for an emergency amputation for a local cat in need. A partner rescue called yesterday on the scene with the distressed daughter of a woman who passed away days before very unexpectedly, but no one knew.  Once discovered medical personnel began going in and out of the home.  The woman had several cats who were clearly in a state of extreme mental distress and they began escaping from the home. This is when the rescue was called, but it was too late as young Frank in all his blind fear ran into the road and was stuck by a car catastrophically breaking his hind leg.

“We need to reach out to our people because they are compassionate, generous and this amputation surgery needs to happen right away, Frank is in great pain.” He is with our vet who is doing her best to manage his pain with medication.  The Quartet Veterinary Hospital in Cary, NC is graciously discounting the cost surgery by 10%, but the cost will reach $3000.00 and the aftercare is easily going to exceed another 1000.00.
