Gift In Your Will

Leaving a gift to YCR is a great way to save the lives of cats and kittens for years to come. You can make a difference to cats like Lorne. This poor little girl came to us after being found in a garden with what looked like injuries to her back legs and hips - most likely done by a car. She could barely walk and needed urgent care at the vets. She also had one of the worst cases of fleas we have ever seen, and with her legs being so badly damaged she wouldn't have been able to scratch and must have been so uncomfortable and in so much pain. 

We rushed her to our vets as soon as we got her and they realised very quickly that she had severe breaks on both sides of her pelvis which needed to be treated by a specialist. We knew without treatment Lorne would not make it, so we sent her off to see the specialist vet. They told us the type of surgery Lorne needed would be very complex and later on we found out that it was one of the most complicated operations they had done for quite a long time.

Poor Lorne had to have pins put in both sides of her pelvis, and her pelvis repaired, as well as 6 weeks of cage rest. The surgery cost us £4,000 and on top of this we also paid for her food and stay with us along with other medications that she needed. This was all before we got her neutered, chipped and treated for fleas and worms. 

Thanks to legacy donations we can pay for these treatments and ensure that cats like Lorne do not get put down. We want to give every cat and kitten a chance to live life to the full and in happy forever homes.
