In early June, 2019 Claus kitty from Plymouth suffered a horrific accident. He was found with severe head and face trauma leading to near blindness in one eye and a broken jaw. 


Without surgery he would lose his life. The cost of his critical care, x-rays, blood panels ultrasound & surgery was estimated at $5,000. Thanks to  some truly generous donors AHP was able to raise $1,700, a portion of the funds needed to  get his life-saving surgery. 


After a long recovery period he was finally able to have his feeding tube removed. The next step is a 2nd surgery to remove the wires in his jaw. And while he looks adorable with his little 'buttons' we know he is excited about leaving them behind to start his new life as a 'normal' kitty. Days full of love, happiness and plenty of naps with pleasant dreams. 


We hope you will consider making a donation to help cover a portion of Claus' medical care. Should we raise more than needed (always a wish come true) remaining funds will go back in to our 'Care Fur Angels' fund to help another pet in urgent need.
