Marge & Maggie - Young Cats with Broken Legs
What is the likelihood of 2 cats with broken legs coming to the shelter only a day apart? On Monday, Marge came in with her 3 kittens (old enough to be separated from her). The girls noted that she seemed to have something wrong with her leg and sure enough, her tibula is broken. The vet did X-rays, determined it could be wired. She was spayed at the same time. She also tested negative for FeLV/FIV. Her bill is $415. The vet said she mostly just needs cage rest and meds to recover.
The next day little Maggie was brought to the shelter in a trap with the comment that she appeared to have been hit by a car and a damaged leg. The girls got her out of the trap to let her settle down and to see how she moved around in a cage. She was very quiet and not bleeding, but it was obvious she was in pain. The vet determined that the top of the femur was damaged and needed to be cut off and that the tissue will grow back and heal the leg -- usually quite easily. He said it is one of the easiest breaks to heal. She needs cage rest and meds to recover. When she went to her cage, she scooted back in the corner with her blankie. Maggie weighs only 2 lbs. so she is still a young one. Her bill is $354 so far -- she was not spayed since he did not want to keep her under anesthesia longer than needed due to her size.
Can you help these girls cover their vet bills, please? In addition to the expenses that have already been posted, we anticipate follow-up vet expenses to assess how both girls heal. Grayson County Humane Society is a volunteer-only organization, and relies sorely on donations from public to continue their daily work helping abandoned animals like Marge and Maggie.

SPECIAL ADOPTION RATES FOR CATS & KITTENS AT LEITCHFIELD ANIMAL SHELTER
Thanks to a special donation to help with the expenses of cat adoptions, the Leitchfield Animal Shelter is able to reduce the usual $55 adoption fee to $20. This special rate will be available until the donation funds are depleted.
Only cats/kittens who are spayed/neutered and up to date on shots are available for this special adoption rate. You can apply online or at the shelter to begin the screening process.
You may view adoptable cat/kitten pictures and videos on the Grayson County Humane Society website at www.graysonhumane.org or visit the shelter any day between the hours of 8:00 and noon Central.
For more information, please call the shelter 270-230-8839, or email our adoption coordinators at GraysonHumane@gmail.com, or visit us on Facebook and leave us a message there.
PLEASE, if you rescue or are thinking about adopting, consider rescuing or adopting our pets, as we do allow out-of-state adoptions and rescues. TRANSPORT IS USUALLY AVAILABLE -- PLEASE JUST ASK!!!
While we do not have a specific kill date, when we are full, we have to euthanize. When we are not full, we do our best to love and care for each pet with all of our abilities.
However, our work force is too small for the number of pets we currently care for. Our shelter is full and when we look at these trusting faces we know the end is near for many of them.
Our shelter pets have been treated for whatever may have ailed them. They have been spayed or neutered. Some, sadly, have spent much more of their lives here than they have ever spent anywhere else. We can tell you about each and every one of them. Please just ask
They are our friends and they desperately need adopters or rescue. Our area simply does not have many adopters. Please consider offering a safe place to one of them today.
