Help Stubby the cat receive medical care!

Stubby

The above is a picture of Stubby, a 4-year-old cat in need of medical care. I received the following message:

My name is Ria, and I’ve created an LJ on behalf of a sweet little guy named Stubby. A friend asked me to provide a temporary home for Stubby, as well as try to find him a forever home, and I was happy to oblige. I knew that Stubby hadn’t been to the vet in a few years, and would need to be caught up on his vaccinations and receive a clean bill of health before I could find a forever home for him.

However, when I took him in for his exam, the doctor determined that his oral health was deteriorated to such an extent that Stubby would need to undergo extensive surgery to extract all of his teeth and repair the damage to his gums and jawbones. As you can imagine, that kind of surgery is very, very expensive, and I if I had the means to pay for it on my own, I would do so in a heartbeat. That’s where you come in…

I’ve created a website called http://www.freewebs.com/surgeryforstubby, where you can learn a little more about Stubby as well as make donations in any amount to help cover the cost of the surgery. For every $5 donated, you’ll receive an entry in the Thank You Raffle for a chance at the Grand Prize of a $50 SuperCertificate to http://www.GiftCertificates.com

My fundraising goal is $1,200…any money raised that exceeds the goal amount will be donated to SICSA (The Society for the Improvement of Conditions for Stray Animals, which is a wonderful no-kill shelter here in Kettering, Ohio.

I’m asking for your support as I try to improve Stubby’s life. Several people have told me to “just put him down, it’s not worth it”…as far as I’m concerned, this is not an option. He’s only four years old, and with this surgery, will lead a long, happy life. Please consider donating…even $1 will help! Even if all you can do is share the website with your friends and fellow animal lovers, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you for your time, and thank you for all the work you do to help our furry friends! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.

I want to make it very clear that my one and only goal in creating the website and corresponding LJ is to raise the funds necessary to get Stubby on the road to health and happiness. I am not affiliated with any shelter or rescue group…I’m just one person trying to make a difference in one animal’s life, in any way that I can.

Sincerely,
Ria K.
