On #GivingTuesday, November 28th, 2017, We Will Be Raising Money to Help More Animals Like Cody

Cody came to us from Perry County Humane Society, a no-kill shelter in southern Illinois who didn’t have the means to keep him at the time. We had Cody here about a week when we observed that he would sometimes limp when he was walking. Our volunteers also noticed that while he would try to run around and play, after about 5 minutes he would plop down and not want to get back up. We took him to the orthopedic vet where they discovered that he had a torn acl. They also found that his kneecap was not where it was supposed to be; they believed some sort of blunt trauma completely moved it.

In an effort to save more needy cats and dogs in Chicagoland and beyond, we will be creating an emergency medical fund to ensure cats and dogs brought to our shelter will be able to receive life-saving veterinary care without hesitation. The fund, called the Mowgli Fund and named for an abandoned cat with medical issues who was saved by WSHS’ efforts, will be started with an endowment from a longtime donor with further funding collected from individual donors and grants throughout the year. An initial outreach appeal for the fund will begin on #GivingTuesday, November 28th, 2017.
