So we need to…


So we need to talk about Lawrence. This was our little 8-week-old kitten that we took on last week after he had been presumably hit by a car. A leg was broken and his tail was mangled and he needs surgery. We posted on him and we are so thankful to all of you who donated for him, but we haven't raised nearly enough. We only raised enough to just barely scrape by with covering the x-rays and the initial vet consultation. We need to raise more than a thousand dollars more to cover his surgery which needs to be done urgently. When we took him in, we knew we were taking a risk. Cats don't raise as much money as dogs do. And black cats especially are largely ignored. People tend to see them as nuisances or part of the landscape of a community. It's easy to turn a blind eye for cats. We can't do that, though. It's not right. Lawrence is NOT just part of the landscape. He's NOT just a nuisance. He's a pet. He has emotions and desires. He wants to love on people and give them nose bops. He wants to sit on your face while you're trying to check Facebook. He's the same as any other kind of companion any one of us might have. He deserves not to suffer. He deserves to be cared for and he deserves to be loved. Don't get us wrong. He's extremely well-cared for right now in one of our foster homes. He just has that surgery hanging over him that we just can't quite reach, but need desperately to. So not only is Lawrence waiting, but this puts a kink for everyone else. Little easy cases we can generally manage, but we can't take on other major medical cases when one of our own is still waiting on treatment. It would be incredibly unfair to Lawrence. And there ARE major medical cases that need our help right NOW that we just feel so powerless for. Those are babies who REALLY need our help. Please. If you're at all in a position to help poor little Lawrence get his surgery, donate. If you're not, share. Or start a fundraiser for us. The sooner we can get him squared away (hopefully today 🤞), the sooner we can get back to getting more tough cases out of Animal Services. ♥️ - #dogsofinstagram#dogoftheday#puppylove#adoptdontshop#rescuedog#itsallgoodep
