Candy came to us as a “feral” cat through a local TNR group to be spayed. She had a previous femoral fracture which caused Quadriceps contracture (read more about this condition here.) She currently has little to no use of her back left leg.
Once Dr. Davis examined her, it was determined that while Candy was under-socialized, she seemed to be a good candidate for adoption and could live a healthy life once her leg is amputated. Rather than releasing her, we are keeping her and will find her a home.
Candy is currently very scared. We can only hypothesize how she received this injury, to begin with, and then she had to survive on the street while it healed improperly. Our staff are already working hard to make her feel safe while she stays with us.
We are currently asking for donations to cover Candy’s surgery. Thanks to the volunteers who trapped her, and donors like you, she can receive proper care, and hopefully, find a home that will give her the time and love she needs to blossom like the sweet girl we know she is!
