Officer Discovers Cat Missing Leg
FOR IMMIDIATE RELEASE - (St. Catharines, ON) December 16, 2014 - Responding to a cruelty complaint, a Lincoln County Humane Society Officer discovered a cat with a missing leg that was allegedly not being treated for its wound.
The cat was voluntarily surrendered to the Lincoln County Humane Society and immediately transported to an Emergency Clinic for emergency treatment and amputation surgery.
Late last night the surgery was performed and this morning the cat, nicknamed ‘Trooper’ is doing well. “Trooper has a long road to recovery, but his prognosis is good” said Kevin Strooband, Executive Director or the Lincoln County Humane Society.
The LCHS spent over $1,000 for this surgery and expects to spend more to maintain the health of this cat. “We felt this surgery was the best choice for this kind cat, who deserves to be cared for in a loving home”, said Kevin Strooband.
Trooper, who received 40 stitches, will be recovering in a foster home until such time as he can be placed for adoption.
An Ontario SPCA investigation continues into Trooper and his wounds.
