The Second Chance Fund has been a part of many great success stories over the years. While we would love to feature each and every one, we're happy to say that there are just too many to post! Here are a few stories to help give you an idea of just what The Second Chance Fund is all about.
Tina was a sweet, 5 week-old kitten that was found motherless, wet, thin and sick. She was brought to LVC where she was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and suffering from malnutrition. She was treated with antibiotics and after weeks of foster care, made a full recovery. She has found her forever human and is adjusting well to her new home!
Pebbles was a 1 year old, spayed female domestic shorthair kitty. She was surrendered to Lodi Veterinary Care after being attacked by two dogs in her home. Pebbles had multiple bite wounds and a broken jaw. The Second Chance Fund accepted her into the program where the medical team repaired her fractured jaw and tended to her wounds. She has found her forever home with her foster family and is loving her new lifestyle!
Pirate was found as a stray kitten on a dairy farm with significant respiratory and eye disease. He was brought to Lodi Veterinary Care and admitted into the Second Chance Fund. Because of the condition of his eye, it was thought that he would likely need to have his eye removed. However, after many treatments and tender loving care, he has made a miraculous recovery and will likely remain visual in both eyes. His new parent may need to find a different name for him, but Pirate is still appropriate because he stole the heart of his foster Dad and earned himself a forever home! He was adopted upon his recovery and joined the group of successful Second Chance Fund Stories.
Edwin was a dashing young cat who was found on a farm with a severely injured back leg. The farm owner brought him to Lodi Veterinary Care where he was accepted into the Second Chance Fund. Radiographs revealed a broken leg leg and the only course of treatment was to amputate his leg. Edwin quickly adjusted to having only three legs and made a remarkable recovery. Throughout his ordeal, Edwin remained a loving and affectionate cat and was quickly adopted to a family who cares for his special needs.
Frosty Paws was a sweet, 14 week old kitty who was found on one of the coldest days of the winter by a good Samaritan. He presented to LVC with a respiratory infection and frostbite injuries to his paws. In addition to his injuries, Frosty was born with abnormally formed eyelids, which makes it seem like he is squinting! This condition is not painful and just adds to his cuteness! After antibiotics and extensive healing of his paws, Frosty Paws made a complete recovery. He remained a sweet and loveable kitten throughout his treatments and was quickly adopted by one of LVC's Equine doctors. He has found his forever home with a little girl who loves him dearly and has a furry roommate who keeps him company!
