Help For Lolly Needed

lollyupdate

Lolly Update: Thank you to everyone who donated to Lolly’s care – you are all awesome! We have good news to share. Lolly is ready to be moved into a foster home! She will need another 4-6 weeks of cage rest while her broken paw heals. She is eating on her own, is gaining weight and is no longer in pain.

linelollyThis past week, our volunteers have had another terrible reminder of the dangers that balconies pose to cats.  Lolly, a one year old female Maine Coon, fell from a 15th story balcony, lacerated her leg, broke her front paw, and dislocated her jaw.  Her owners were not able to afford the care she needed.  She was surrendered to Toronto Animal Services and transferred to TCR to continue care. Please help TCR with Lolly’s care by making a donation.

Because of these very serious injuries Lolly sustained, she has been unable to eat on her own and needed a feeding tube inserted to help get her the nutrition she needs. Pain management has been difficult for the vets as Lolly’s injuries are so complex and severe. Several vets were consulted on her care and she was transferred to the Veterinary Emergency Clinic (VEC) for surgery with a specialist.

Lolly is still in the care of the VEC but will be transferred back to a TCR clinic shortly for post-operative care.  Her care has been expensive.  Lolly’s vet bills are estimated at $5,000.  Please help us get Lolly back to health so she can enjoy a long life by making a donation today.

Update: Our Volunteer Centre

TCR-VC-Announcement7In April, we announced plans to open Toronto Cat Rescue’s first ever Volunteer Centre. We asked for your help in raising $50,000 to support the renovation costs of getting the Centre up and running this summer.

We have an exciting update! Our awesome community came together and quickly raised $15,000 for the project. Then, something amazing happened. Inspired by the goals of the Centre and the momentum of the fundraising so far, one of our volunteers stepped up and pledged to donate the remaining $35,000! 

Thank you to each and every single person who has made a donation – no matter how small or large – towards this project. You’ve helped make it a reality.

Renovations for the Toronto Cat Rescue Volunteer Centre are now well underway and we expect to open it this summer. Stay tuned for updates on this exciting initiative and the incredible difference it will make in saving more lives.
