Gertie was shot with an arrow and had her tail chopped off.
We are trying to save a cat who was shot with a bow and arrow by a coward! Yesterday, our partners at Troy Animal Rescue went out to a call in a rural area of Troy, AL. A small cat had an arrow sticking out of his side. He was hurt and afraid so catching him was basically impossible. Rescuers knew without immediate care the cat would die. Now we are pleading for your help!
Rescuers had to set a trap and wait and watch until they we able to get the cat now named Gertie. It took hours but they were finally able to capture the cat and transport her to an Emergency Vet. Because it was late Saturday by this point the Emergency Vet had to come in after hours. Doctors knew if they didn’t take Gertie in for emergency surgery she would not make it.
Gertie not only had an arrow in his side, but also had half his tail cut off. Who did this? Why? We simply do not know. Dr Simmer performed surgery yesterday and removed the arrow and amputated his tail to allow it to heal. The wounds are days old meaning Gertie has suffered like this for some time. This was one of the worst weekends for animal abuse here.
We are here to help rise the funds needed for Gertie’s emergency care which will cost in the thousands. To help save Gertie please consider purchasing one of her shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below. We have partnered with TARP to create these animal saving products to raise the funds needed to save her!
