Sometimes cats don't land on their feet. And when they do it isn't always pretty. Snaggletooth recently found this out the hard way after failing to land a jump. He ended up with a severally broken back leg requiring expensive surgery.

Snaggletooth first came to us last year as a stray. At some point in his life someone cared enough for him to ensure he was neutered and tattooed. But by the time he came to us the tattoo had faded and couldn't be read so he was stuck with us. He's a sweet, loving, relaxed guy and sometimes his bottom left tooth ends up being in front of his upper lip so we dubbed him Snaggletooth. 

Life on the streets was rough for Snaggletooth and it took it's toll. At 10 years-young he had high blood pressure, a heart murmur and was mildly anemic. But with some care and attention he was doing well, until disaster struck.

Snaggletooth failed to land a jump and severally broke his right back leg. In fact he broke it so badly a specialist had to come in to install a plate and pin the leg. As you can imagine, this type of surgery is very expensive, not to mention the ongoing care while he heals. We estimate the final total will be in excess of $3,000. 

Will you help us pay for Snaggletooth's care by donating today?

VOKRA’s mission is to end cat overpopulation and homelessness. We rescue, heal, then place cats - first in our network of foster homes, then in carefully matched, loving, forever homes. We are a passionate, volunteer-driven charity with extensive cat care experience. We believe that no kill is the only responsible approach to rescue, that Trap-Neuter-Return works and that cats are AWESOME! You can learn more about VOKRA by visiting www.vokra.ca.

Medical costs account for approximately 50% of VOKRA's budget. All extra funds raised will go directly towards helping fund other emergency surgeries as needed.

Snaggletooth before & after Snaggletooth's foster Bill has him set up in comfort and is ensure he gets plenty of rest and food while he recovers.
