Simi

The skin was completely torn off of Simi's little chin. Now at only a few months old, Simi requires reconstructive surgery to repair his chin and some of his teeth, which were damaged in the injury. How did this horrific event happen? Well he was found on top of the motor of a semi-truck. It is suspected that he was injured while seeking warmth beneath the vehicle. Upon hearing Simi's little mews and seeing the blood, the driver rushed Simi to the vet. Despite all his pain (even with medicine), Simi remains sweet and would love nothing more than to snuggle all day, every day. You can help Simi get the surgery he needs to repair his jaw. You can give Simi a happy ending. ID#: 445032 *Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Simi until he’s ready for adoption. If his medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in his name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.

Artura

Like many of the other 55 cats Artura arrived with, she suffers from giardia, upper respiratory infections, and severe dental disease, which causes her intense, constant agony.

Toby

The collar was so deeply embedded into Toby that the flesh around it was swollen and oozing with the infection that set in. Found with the collar lodged under his left front leg, he had obviously been stuck for a long time. It was good news for him that he got caught in a TNR (trap neuter release) trap at a local feral colony - he is definitely not feral! When staff found him they immediately took him to the vet. Toby loves everyone and he needs your help to cover the cost of the emergency surgery required to remove the embedded collar and to ensure he gets the medicine he needs to make a full recovery from the infection raging through his little body. You can help Toby heal. You can make Toby purr! ID#: 445853 *Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Toby until he’s ready for adoption. If his medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in his name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.

Bella

Found with her paw caught in a trap, Bella's paw with broken and skinned. To make matters worse? She needed urgent surgery, but couldn't get it because she's from a rural area and the weather prevented any flights from leaving. She went two days without proper care. Finally the weather cleared and Pacific Coastal Airlines generously rushed her without any cost to Comox to get the treatment she desperately needed. The absolute agony that Bella felt can only be understood by someone who has had similar trauma. Yet, for those of us who have not, we can only imagine. Despite this pain, Bella remained outgoing and endearing to everyone she meets. She needs your help to cover the surgery and to help her through followup care. You can be Bella's hero. You can free her from suffering. ID#: 446173 *Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Bella until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.

ID#: 446723 *Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Ron until he’s ready for adoption.

Ariel

Ariel was found hiding piled up with all the other cats in her room, terrified of all humans. She was our very first intake of 56 cats, and as soon as we began to handle her, she began to purr, despite her previous hesitation, and quickly became the greeter and ambassador for everyone else in her room. Ariel arrived very sick: she had giardia (a nasty intestinal parasite that causes diarrhea and is highly contagious to other animals, including humans), severe dental disease, and an upper respiratory infection that caused not only severe congestion but also painful, swollen eyes with significant discharge. She needs your help to get the surgery and extensive medical care she requires to heal. Ariel wants nothing more than to be loved and you can be the person who shows her the love she's long been denied. ID#: 441970 *Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Ariel until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.
