Milo Needs Your Help

Milo has had a tough time so far in his short life. He was left behind by his owners when they moved, then neighbors took him in but couldn’t keep him because they were moving. This all happened in freezing temperatures. His sister had a terrible mouth infection which we have been treating and now poor Milo likely needs surgery. He has been throwing up all weekend and the fear is that he has something lodged in his intestines.

We do our best to help out area cats and we adopt them out for much less than we spend on each cat to FeLV test them, spay/neuter, vaccinate and treat for parasites. Additionally all the foster’s expenses are covered. To be able to continue to do this we would really appreciate help with some of these unexpected expenses.

If you are able to assist us with Milo’s vet expenses you may donate using the link below or call to make a deposit into our account at Milliron Clinic (where he was housed over the weekend for monitoring 740-592-4282).
