Cali was found in someone backyard unable to see and unable to breath!
Posted by Second Chance Rescue NYC Dogs on Thursday, March 28, 2019
Rescuers received video of this critically ill kitten found in someones yard in NYC. He is barely surviving. Volunteers couldn't believe their eyes when they first saw Cali. How on earth did Cali survive this long without any help?
Cali cannot see, his eyes are covered in dried mucus and crust. Cali cannot breathe, his nose has no passage ways and he resorts to mouth breathing to take in air. As scared as he is, he allows our volunteer to approach. They are ready to fight for his life!
Rescuers immediately rushed Cali to the emergency vets. He came in extremely dehydrated, loaded with parasites and a severe upper respiratory infection. The doctor is aggressively treating Cali. Despite him being so sick he was so affectionate to volunteers and the doctor. Our hearts are at ease knowing he’s in the care of professionals.
Time is of the essence. Care for critically ill animals is expensive! Second Chance Rescue is asking for your support in getting Cali’s vetting and transporting bills covered.
UPDATE 4-5-19: We wanted to share some great news! Cali is doing much better. The first 48 hours were very nerve wrenching for everyone. He was weak, lethargic, exhausted, not eating, not drinking.... However, today he finally ate some food and he’s drinking enough water on his own that the doctors are planning to remove the IV. He’s still on antibiotics and we certainly have some time to go but Cali is a strong boy. SCR is still need of your support.
We have created the animal-saving products below to help raise the funds for these procedures. Please consider purchasing one of these items and share her story to help give Cali the second chance he deserves!
