Critical Care Program

Many of the homeless animals that come to AniMeals are in need of urgent care, including costly surgeries or specialized treatments. We often witness suffering from serious illnesses due to neglect or harsh living conditions. Many felines have broken bones or life threatening injuries. Immediate emergency veterinary care is critical for their survival.
 
When these situations present themselves, and speed is essential to saving a life, no matter what time of the day or night it is, the cost is usually very high. It is important to get these animals stabilized as quickly as possible to ease suffering. 

 
These expenses are not your average every day medical costs. They are always emergency situations requiring extraordinary measures, including surgeries and treatments.

Your Critical Care Fund gift helps felines like 5-month-old Seamus, who was left outside of AniMeals in the safe haven box with a broken right rear femur. He was given pain medications until a veterinarian placed pins in Seamus' leg. He made a complete recovery and is now jumping and playing as he should at his age.  

Colby was also left outside of the shelter in the safe haven box with another cat and kitten. While in the ICU, he kept spiking an unexplainable fever that would come and go necessitating a trip to the pet emergency room. His symptoms, along with a positive feline coronavirus test, pointed to a diagnosis of Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). The Critical Care Fund helped AniMeals cover the cost of Mutian, a drug yet to be approved by the Federal Drug Administration. It has proven effective in the treatment of once life-threatening FIP. Colby completed his 84-day cycle of Mutian followed by 84 days of observation and is now looking for his new companions to take him home. 

Each year, 15 cats benefit from the Critical Care Fund. Thanks for considering a donation today!
