Need Help Re-COOPER-ating
Organized by: Dena Sozio Silverman
A sweet, loving pet was the victim of a hit and run car accident on Wednesday July 30th and is now struggling for his life.
After losing many loved ones over the past two years we just cannot bear to lose Cooper like this, so we are doing everything we can to save him.
Cooper is in the animal hospital right now in critical condition. His lungs are very bruised and are actually leaking air into his chest cavity. The doctor has "tapped" his chest for air 3 times and now needs to put in a semi-permanent chest tube that will help improve Cooper's breathing temporarily. Then he will need surgery if his condition doesn't resolve (it might).
Cooper is also dealing with a nasty fracture of his femur, which will not heal on its own. Amputation might be necessary. Surgery to save the leg is still on the table, but not until his breathing situation is more stable.
He has to be transported every night from the animal hospital to an emergency veterinary clinic, adding to the already extremely high cost of keeping our kitty alive.
We have already paid over $2800 for initial care and it hasn't even been 24 hours yet.
Any amount of money that you can spare will help us. Please contribute as much as you are able and we will be eternally grateful. Help save a life today.
