Ranger was taken in by The Stray Connection. He was found to have a luxating patella, which is basically an out-of-place knee cap. He required an expensive surgery to have any hope for a decent quality of life. We kicked in $500 to give him that. Ranger is on his way to happier trails!
Little Trinket was rescued as a stray and taken in by The Stray Connection. She had a terrible ulcerated eye that had to be removed. We sponsored this surgery, and Trinket feels so much better!
Little Abe was taken in by The Stray Connection. Upon being vetted, he was diagnosed with a condition where the intestine folds in on itself. He was in a lot of pain and required immediate emergency surgery. He’s now doing great in foster care while he heals.
Stud Muffin was found as a stray with a broken hip, injured leg, covered in fleas, and his tail was skinned nearly to the bone. The Stray Connection took him in and had him put back together with $300.
Petunia is one of two kittens dropped off at a dog rescue in a rural Tennessee county that has no shelter. She had a prolapsed rectum and required surgery. Thankfully, The Stray Connection (TSC) stepped up to help and took her straight to the vet for surgery. Petunia has since had two failed surgeries, so TSC asked us to help them with one last ditch effort. We think Petunia is worth it!
Little Orphan Annie was taken in by The Stray Connection. While in foster care, she developed a luxating patella, which is a displaced kneecap. The surgery cost over $1,400. We were able to chip in $300.
Pop Squash was hit by a car. His left hip and right knee were fractured, so he had to have surgery on both legs. The veterinarian is very optimistic that he will make a full recovery and be able to walk. Pop Squash’s recovery will require six weeks cage rest. Then he will be up for adoption!
Bullseye came into the stellar rescue, The Stray Connection, weighing about one pound and blind. One eye was diseased, had ruptured, and was painful, so he needed surgery quickly. We were able to sponsor the surgery. Now, he has a great spirit and seems much happier having the painful, ruptured eye removed. Bullseye will soon be available for adoption.
This little kitten weighed just over a pound when she was rescued from a trailer park colony. She was sick, and one eye was so infected that it was completely distended from its socket and riddled with parasites. The Stray Connection took her in and named her Grace. Unfortunately, the eye couldn’t be saved, but she is much more comfortable and will do just fine with one eye. The rescue will ensure she gets a family who will keep her indoors.
Buttercup came to The Stray Connection from a shelter. She also brought six kittens with her. When they were weaned, her job was not done. Seven orphans came into the shelter, and they needed nourishment from a nursing cat, so Buttercup raised all of them, too! Unfortunately along the way, she got an eye infection that turned nasty. Her eye ruptured and could not be saved, requiring removal. We sponsored this needed surgery. Buttercup will be adopted to a loving indoor home as soon as she has fully recovered.
