Raven's Fund

Raven's Fund

Poor Raven has been through the absolute wars.

First, the tiny kitten suffered an enormous abscess on her shoulder and limped in pain.

Then, she came down with a dreadful case of cat flu.

And now – an infection is eating away at the bone on Raven’s shoulder, and she can barely walk on her right leg.

Currently 4-months old, Raven came to us as an orphaned stray with her littermates three months ago.

She lost her mum at such a young age, and while we’ve been doing all we can to help her, things have only gotten harder for this darling little girl.

Raven has spent the past several weeks under the watchful eye of experienced RSPCA vet nurse and foster carer Jodie.

She’s been treated with multiple courses of antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and pain relief.

Things were starting to look up.

But a couple of weeks ago, Raven started to limp again – and another X-ray revealed that the initial abscess on her shoulder had infected the entire joint.

Our vet team has worked hard to save Raven’s leg.

They cleaned, clipped and bandaged her initial injury, then recently placed her on a 3-week course of antibiotics to see if this would stop the infection.

But Raven has showed few signs of improvement with daily care, and will likely need her leg amputated to free her from pain – and save her life.

Will you help this brave girl get the expert care and attention she needs to get better, once and for all? Our vets estimate the total cost of her treatment and recovery will be $1500.

Please donate today to help get us there.

* The goal for Raven’s fundraiser includes surgery to treat and remove her injured leg, the costs of x-rays, antibiotics, pain relief and rehabilitation, as well as the costs of desexing, vaccinations and microchipping. If her medical costs are less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals in need.
