Imagine your eyelids folding into your eye and your eyelashes constantly rubbing against your eyes! For Oscar this is his life.

A life lived only on the streets, means that this six-year old boy has never received any care - and you can definitely see the hardships he has suffered on his face!

Nevertheless, Oscar is friendly, chatty, and outgoing. He is ready to heal and find his purrfect forever home.

He needs your help to correct the entropion he has in both eyes (eyelids folded inwards), which can result in blindness if not treated. Following this surgery and after recovering, Oscar will get to enjoy life with his forever family.

Oscar’s life on the streets finally caught up with him... You initially helped Oscar get the surgery he needed to treat his eye ailment; however, your support ended up saving his life!

Immediately following his surgery, Oscar was doing really well until one morning staff came in to find him vomiting and lethargic. It was touch-and-go as he was rushed back to the vet, where blood work showed that there was something off - an infection was attacking and destroying his red blood cells. Thankfully, due to the quick response by Kamloops BC SPCA staff and with your generosity, Oscar got the medication and fluids he needed to survive.

Today, Oscar is thriving in his foster home. He loves his treats and cuddles. And best of all? He is doing so well that he will be soon ready to find his forever family!
