Yesterday Salisbury City Animal responded to a call of a cat being hit by a car. When the cat was evaluated during intake at our shelter, we determined he had injuries that we could not medically treat at our facility. As of Saturday morning, this white and black male cat which we have named Milo, is at Johnson-Mckee Animal Hospital in Salisbury, Maryland.
Milo's femur is badly broken and has separated from his pelvis. He is scheduled for surgery to amputate the back left leg. Johnson-McKee has graciously agreed to perform the surgery for free if we cover the cost all other treatments Milo receives at their office.
It is our duty to cover Milo's medical needs, but as a small, local non-profit we can only fund this procedure through donations from our community. We also need help spreading the word to find Milo's owner- if he has one. As of now he is considered a stray and will be held as a stray for 6 days per county law. We will not accept any applications for Milo until stray-hold is over and he becomes available for adoption through our facility.
We are asking our community to please give what they can, even if it's just a few dollars. We also need our supporters to share this post so we can find any owner and learn his true name if he has one. He was found off Route 13 in Salisbury at Peninsula Roofing.
We extend the most sincere THANK YOU to City Animal Control for responding to this incident so quickly and to Johnson-McKee for so generously performing this surgery. For more information on Johnson-McKee is available at www.johnsonmckeeanimalhospital.com.
