Urgent appeal: Stu needs your help.
Stu is a survivor.
He braved one of the most horrific injuries ever seen at the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS) and today, he needs your help.
Stu is a majestic tabby cat who was discovered by business owners in the Glen Huron area on a bitterly cold February night. Located in an isolated spot, it appeared that Stu had been dropped off.
One week later, the parents of a dedicated GTHS volunteer visited the business and asked about Stu when they saw him. Knowing he needed help, they jumped to action to get Stu the urgent medical attention he needed. His front right leg was critically injured.
Stu was rushed to the Thornbury Veterinary Hospital where he remained an affectionate and loving soul throughout his entire stay. Once stabilized, he received the life-saving amputation.
Stu’s leg had been so severely injured that Dr. Justin Levy of Thornbury Veterinary Hospital said he had never seen anything like it.
“He was walking on a stump of bone. His radius and ulna bone were completely exposed”, explained Dr. Levy. “He had either been trapped or something had chewed the muscle and soft tissue away from his bone”. Despite this, he was a sweet cat and easy to handle.
In total, Stu’s entire rehabilitation will cost over $3000. Please be a Guardian Angel to Stu.
We estimate that 20-30 pets will enter the Guardian Angels program this year, leaving the GTHS with approximately $32,000 in medical expenses. In the absence of federal or provincial government funding, we rely on the generosity of supporters like you to help us continue to provide abandoned, neglected and abused domestic animals with a second chance at a happy life.
