Injured Kitten Needs Help!

"Pirate" is lucky to be alive. She is a 6 week old kitten who was found running down the barrier in the middle of the Trans-Canada highway earlier tonight. Not only was she scared and infested with fleas, but one of her hind legs was completely severed. Later named "Pirate" by her rescuers, this little girl is in the veterinary hospital awaiting surgery to amputate the mangled end of her leg. With such a terrible injury this little girl is very lucky to have survived.

"Pirate's" rescuers are fundraising to be able to pay for her surgery. If you would like to make a donation to help "Pirate" please contact Michele at 250-217-8776. The staff of Central Saanich Animal Hospital are caring for "Pirate" so if you would prefer to make an anonymous donation you can contact the vet at 250-652-4312 and ask to make a payment toward "Pirate's" bill (major credit cards, debit, and cash accepted.)

Update August 30th/10: Pirate's rescuers just sent us an update. Her leg was successfully amputated last week by the doctors and staff of Central Saanich Animal Hospital and Pirate is now at home and is recovery very well. Her family would like to thank all of the rescue groups, as well as all of the individuals, who donated to make Pirate's surgery possible. They are thrilled with the outcome and couldn't have offered Pirate a second chance without the generosity of all of those who helped her.
