FUNDRAISING AND UPDATES

Are you ready for a spooky tale, complete with skeletons?
Warning - gruesome detail ahead! Mr Floof was recently brought into foster care by Perth Rescue Angels trapping team, after a business in an industrial area reported seeing him around their premises. His foster carer soon noticed something odd with his leg - it appeared to be injured, possibly broken, and may even require amputation. The team at Paws & More Vet Centre examined his leg and took some x-rays and were gobsmacked to discover that Mr Floof already took care of that himself! It's likely at some stage in his life Mr Floof chewed off his own leg... his handy work is pictured below. Although we can't know for sure, it's quite possible that whilst living on the streets Mr Floof injured his leg or become stuck, and faced a very spooky decision. We're so glad to report that Mr Floof is thriving on three legs and slowly adjusting to life in foster care. Although Mr Floof doesn't need to go under the knife, many of our foster cats and kittens face health issues (or false alarms) that can become costly - proven by the fact that 95% of our expenses are vet bills! To help our cats who are not as lucky as Mr Floof, please consider donating to our current fundraiser.

Thank you - $50K Raised!
Can you believe 2022 is already past the halfway mark? This year has absolutely flown by for us here at PRA, and as the saying goes we have been having a lot of fun! We’ve held some fantastic events including our weekly adoption events at pet stores around Perth, as well as some very special visits to universities, senior centres and more with cuddly kittens in tow! We’ve managed to match a massive 921 cats and kittens to their forever homes up to 30 June, and among them are some pretty special cases who have really beat the odds. In May we launched a fundraiser seeking donations towards the vet bills of some of our cats and kittens with high medical needs – these animals truly needed a lifeline and we are so glad we could provide one. We set a goal to raise $50,000 – a big ask, but this amount meant we could offer a safe haven to cats battling serious illness, injury or sometimes both, and give them the second chance they deserve. We are so thrilled to announce that we reached our target – $50,875 to be exact! We’re absolutely blown away by the generous and ongoing support of the PRA community and want to give our heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated! If you would like to contribute to our cause, donations can be made at any time online or by bank transfer. Every dollar helps!

Can you please help give Norman a 'leg up'?
Meet beautiful Norman. One night we received a call from one of our supporters alerting us to a kitty that desperately needed our help. Someone had posted on a local Facebook page that a black kitty was injured and they were having trouble catching him. Our supporter and her husband plus 3 other good samaritans managed to catch the little dude and rush him to the local vet where they provided first aid. The injured kitty was transferred to our friends at Paws & More Vet Centre where the nurses named him Norman. Norman was in shock and severely dehydrated when he arrived at our vets so once he was stabilized, he had his X-rays and we realized the extent of his injuries. Norman had severe pelvic fractures, with the pelvis being displaced and fractures in 4 to 5 areas as well as his pelvic canal being completely shattered. He required specialist surgery so off he went to our friends at Drovers Vet Hospital who performed major orthopaedic surgery on Norman. He had 4 plates placed and unfortunately he also had to have his tail amputated. Norman is now comfortable in his foster home and so far is making a good recovery thanks to his foster carer Tracey. We think Norman has never been owned and has always lived his life on the streets. Now, he knows love, warmth and a full belly. He still has a long way to go in his recovery and his injury has left us with a $4000 vet bill to go with his new hips! If you can donate to Norman’s vet bills you can donate with PayPal or by direct debit: Commonwealth Bank Perth Rescue Angels BSB: 066-161 AC: 10709139 Ref: Norman Every dollar counts! No donation is too small.
