Max Needs Your Help!
Max, a sweet 6-year-old cat, was found as a stray by a Good Samaritan in Painesville Township on May 14, 2020. The Good Samaritan contacted us and reported that they had noticed Max had severe damage to his eyes. It was imperative that we evaluate his condition immediately. It was then that our Humane Agent was dispatched to go pick Max up and brought him to Lake Humane Society.
Upon examination, it was found that he suffered trauma and/or infections to both of his eyes. His left eye is shrunken and non-functional. The right eye has adhesions on it which means his body tried to repair the eye on its own. Due to the severity of his condition, Max will require surgery on both of his eyes. Our Veterinarian feels that one eye will need removed but the other may be functional; however, she will not know for sure until the time of the procedure. Max is currently being treated for an upper respiratory infection (URI), which is delaying his surgery.
Once Max has completed his treatment and is healthy enough to undergo surgery he will have his operation. For the time being, he is getting plenty of TLC from our staff while he continues his treatment and awaits surgery. He is a very loving kitty and will be available for adoption once he recovers.
Max's care can cost upwards of $1,500. This estimate includes the medication and treatment for URI, his operation, and recovery and post-op care. In addition to his extensive medical care, LHS will neuter and microchip Max, as well as provide him with preventatives and initial vaccines.
All donations made to this fundraising page will be designated to our Angel Fund, and 100% of your gift will go toward Max and his lifesaving care. Once these animals have fully recovered, any excess funds will remain in our Angel Fund and will be used to help the next animal in need of extensive or emergency medical care.
We can't give these loving pets a second chance without you! Please donate today and save lives.
Pets Who Have Gotten A Second Chance At Life
Thanks To The Angel Fund and Donors Like You
Auggie came to us in 2017. He was found barely hanging onto life and was one of the worst cases of malnutrition LHS has seen. In addition to his malnutrition, he suffered from severe dehydration, anemia, and infections all over his body.
A good samaritan brought Lucy to LHS back in December of 2019 after she was hit by a car. She suffered multiple abrasions and trauma all over her body and it was determined that her front leg was paralyzed. Due to her paralysis, she underwent surgery to amputate her leg.
Nemo came into our care in 2018 after breaking both of his front legs. Splits were not enough to heal his injuries and was required to go into surgery which included a bone graft, placing external plates and screws on the bone in order to stabilize his legs while they healed.
On behalf of the animals, staff, and Board of Directors at Lake Humane Society, I would like to extend my sincerest gratitude for your donation. Your compassion and generosity are truly appreciated. Without your loyal support, we cannot continue to care for the thousands of homeless, abandoned, and injured animals of Lake County.
Thank you for supporting our cause and making our lifesaving work possible.
