Rescue kitten help

diaphoni rescued a wee kitten from a bad situation and the little guy apparently has a crushed paw. They are on a very fixed income so are trying to raise the $800+ to have the leg amputated so he will be out of pain and danger and get on with the rest of his new life as a beloved house kitty (to which he is taking quite well despite his injury).

Local rescue groups have provided some of the money, but they are trying to raise more to at least get onto a payment plan with the vet so he can have his op soon.

Flyer here with pix of the cute little fella. Good thoughts and signal boosts are welcome if you don't have any spare cash.

Tell them to ask their vet about Care Credit. Not all vets accept it (or have even heard of it), but those that do can usually help with the application process. Yes, it's a credit card, but when that's the only option for necessary veterinary services, it can literally be a lifesaver. It can also be used for human medical needs, assuming the caregiver accepts it.

G'day I just happened to be cruising through a mate's friend page and saw this. diaphoni lives in a remote area and her vet doesn't accept Care Credit, it was one of the first things they tried. The nearest vet that does, is several hours away. =/

The good news though, is that many people have seen her plea passed around lj, twitter, and facebook, and have been able to toss some spare change into the hat. She has enough to get him the surgery and set up a payment plan to pay the rest.

I'm delighted to hear that the little guy is getting his op!

C, they live in the north coast boonies, so their care options are a bit limited. If they were a bit closer in, I'd certainly send them to simplykimberly's vet, who takes very good care of rescue kittens.

Hm. Is there a link for sending money? Address? A paypal button would probably get them a huge chunk of that $800+ - has someone seen one of those? I know Serene has had really good luck setting up a paypal route, and I'd gladly click and send some money that way.
