Second Cat shot with an arrow in one week!
Ok guys we have a frightening update on the cat shot with a bow and arrow. We now have a second confirmed shooting case of a cat with an arrow in Caseyville, Illinois.
Partners 4 Pets received a call from animal control again, about a severely injured cat in Caseyville, Illinois. We're calling this survivor "Archer." You may not know we have a second case we just launched named Arrow. Both were wounded with a pink arrow. You can see Arrow's story HERE
Lake Animal Hospital is helping Archer as much as possible. As you can see from the x-rays, the injury is quite severe. We are hopeful this little guy can make a full recovery. It may be necessary to surgically pin the broken bones, but it is possible we may not be able to save Archer's leg.
A reward of $3K is being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for these horrific acts. The non-emergency number for the public to make a report is 618-277-3504.
As many of you know, this is the second such attack in a week. The first cat, Arrow, is still in the hospital, and is battling an infection. To date, Partners 4 Pets' medical expenses are about $1500, and with Archer's care, that amount is expected to double.
For now, we are focused on saving both cat's lives. We have partnered with Partners 4 Pets to help raise the funds needed for Arrow and Archer's care. With every shirt, bracelet, tote or hoodie you can give this abused baby a second chance at a pain free life full of love. This abuse needs to be stopped. Will you join us?
