Gabby is one of many special needs cats VOKRA cares for each year. The cost of medical care and rehab for these special cats is high so we could use your help today. We estimate it will take $2,000 to provide Gabby with the best quality of life possible.

Gabby’s a girl with a wobble. The official term for her condition is Feline Cerebellar Hypoplasia, or CH for short, and it’s a neurological condition that results in walking and balance problems. This condition doesn’t get worse, it’s just something she was born with, and despite being unable to walk normally she’s healthy and can climb any cat tree out there!

To help strengthen Gabby’s back legs, her foster mom Becky does physiotherapy with her daily and has seen a vast improvement in her mobility. Due to her intensive regime, Gabby’s now able to support herself and walk a few steps without being aided. Yah Gabby!

We estimate it will cost $2,000 to provide Gabby with the best possible chance at a normal life. This will pay for a specialized diet, a harness to help her get around, acupuncture treatments and all her medical expenses. Special needs cats like Gabby have increased medical costs and, as a volunteer-driven non-profit, it’s a real challenge to find extra funds.

Will you help Gabby walk 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 other special needs cats like Gabby.

A big thank you goes to Anaïsa Visser for creating Gabbby's video.
