Update: April 2013
Great news for all of Champ’s supporters! This brave cat, who came so close to losing his life, has improved tremendously. Although he is still in our Emergency Care Unit, his jaw has healed very well, and he is able to eat on his own. Our veterinary team reports that the wire in his mouth will be removed very soon, hopefully within the next few days.
Champ hasn’t yet had the surgery to remove his eyes, since they aren’t causing him any discomfort at this time. It’s possible he may need this surgery in the future, and if so, we will provide him with the best care in the world.
Although Champ will never be able to see again, we know fully expect that this survivor will adapt well to his new condition.
Once we determine that Champ’s jaw is fully healed, he will go up for adoption.
Many thanks to all of you who donated so generously to help Champ survive his ordeal!
When North Shore Animal League America rescued this sweet Siamese cat from a municipal shelter, he was perilously close to death.
The cat, whom our rescue team named Champ, had been hit by a car and left gravely wounded on a roadside. His injuries included head trauma, a broken jaw and severe damage to both of his eyes.
Despite Champ’s slim odds of survival, our medical staff worked tirelessly to save him. They immediately administered medication to alleviate his pain; next, they wired his jaw shut so it could have a chance to heal properly. Then, they inserted a feeding tube so Champ could receive essential nourishment to help him gain back his strength.
Our veterinary staff monitored Champ around-the-clock, concerned that the impact of the crash might have caused neurological problems. Day by day, he is growing stronger, and he shows no signs of brain damage.
But Champ isn’t out of the woods yet. Sadly, the injuries to his eyes were far too severe to be repaired, and he will require surgery to remove them.
Won’t you please help?
Although Champ will never see again, this resilient cat will thrive under the care of a loving adopter who has another cat to help him adapt.
Please donate today so that we can provide Champ, and other innocent animals like him, with the treatment they so richly deserve.
On behalf of all ailing and abused animals, we thank you for generosity.
