FUNDRAISING AND UPDATES

thank-you-50k-raised

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!

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!
