Help Helga

Only five-months old and found alone and limping from a dislocated hip, little Helga was desperate for medical care and love.

This baby needs your help to get the surgery to repair her hip and help her walk -
and more importantly, play - pain-free. The surgery you give her, means she will grow into a healthy lady with no mobility issues.

Constantly purring and super affectionate, Helga is the definition of a lovebug. Her favourite place to cuddle? Your neck. The closer she can get to you, the happier she is.

You can help Helga heal and ensure she goes on to find her forever cuddle partner(s).

Helga is recovering well from her surgery! It is as though she didn't have surgery at all. She needs to stay on cage rest for the next few weeks, which is proving difficult as she wants to be active! She is allowed to come out for supervised playtime, but no jumping or climbing! She is still as snuggly as ever and happy to curl up in your neck.
