this is clayton. he was adopted from the same shelter i adopted both my cats from and he needs your help:
"My name is Clayton. I was born in a foster home to a pregnant cat who had been brought to Standish as a stray. My foster mom said I was the sweetest kitten, and I quickly found a wonderful forever home. My life was perfect. Then, one day a horrible thing happened. I tried to stand up and walk, but I couldn’t. Every time I tried to get up and walk, my feet splayed out to the side and as hard as I tried, I could not walk.
My owner took me to the vet and was told that I have a congenital condition that can be cured by surgery and that my prognosis is excellent. The vet said I have two luxating patellas, which means my kneecaps are dislocated. My owner was so happy to hear that I would be fine, but then his joy turned to tears when he was told how much the surgery would cost.
The estimated cost of the surgery was thousands of dollars, so my owner turned to Standish for help. Of course, Standish agreed to help and immediately talked to the vet and negotiated the lowest price for the cost of my surgery. My owner has already spent a substantial amount of money caring for me and will continue to do so, but he cannot afford the entire amount necessary for me to walk again. Standish has some funds available for veterinary expenses for extraordinary situations such as mine but still needs to raise additional funds before I can have the surgery. CAN YOU HELP ME BY MAKING A DONATION TO STANDISH FOR MY MEDICAL EXPENSES? Any amount will help and be greatly appreciated.
