Jade - Help to fund life changing surgery

UPDATE POST SURGERY - Surgery went well and she is home doing regular phsio.  She is back twice a week now for ongoing physio for approx 2 months.  If you can help cover ongoing costs, please donate what you can. x

When Jade came into our care she had a badly healed fracture to one of her rear knee joints.  She had learned to move/walk in an unusual way to compensate for her injuries. At the time it was felt that it was in Jade's best interests not to operate but to manage her mobility, knowing she may need intervention in the future should her mobility deteriorate.  Due to this, sadly no one wanted to adopt Jade, so she has remained as a sanctuary cat under the care of HappyCats Rescue.  However, recently, Jade's mobility has been getting increasingly difficult. After initial investigations from our vet, a referral to a specialist Veterinary Referral Centre has been arranged for Monday 11th December, for further investigations and scans to see if she is suitable for surgery (this surgery could be quite complex) to improve her mobility and resolve her pain issues.  All options will be considered for Jade to give her the best chance of a quality of movement and a pain free life.

The financial costs for Jade with the initial scans for Jade at the specialist Veterinary Referral Centre are currently estimated at around £2K. Future costs for Jade are currently unknown as this will depend upon the treatment, but could be in the region of £6 - £8K.
These costs will make a big dent into our financial reserves. Should this appeal raise more than is initially required then these monies will be set aside towards future veterinary costs.
