Kaylee found Gaffer, an 8-month old kitten, in a house with an apparently broken leg. The folks he lived with did not have the capacity to get him care. 
Kaylee brought him to a veterinary clinic right away, but lacked the funds to pay in full for the necessary amputation.

It is unknown how his leg was broken, but that is why I rescued him. I wanted to help him as he was in pain.

No animal should have to suffer what Gaffer has been through. Thats why Kaylee reached out to the McVitie Fund for financial assistance, to help cover the cost of his urgent veterinary care.  

Could you make a donation today towards the cost of Gaffers amputation and recovery? 🐱

Thank you for helping him.❤

Awwww

Poor baby😥

🙏🙏🙏🙏

People need to stop getting pets they can't or won't take care of It is criminal that has happened to that gentle being. NO EXCUSES PLEASE. i just donated for a dog named Ned. Same thing happened to him, causing his leg to be amputated. These situations make me angry. Most Vets will allow a payment plan.

Thank tou

Sad, truly sad .

Do not give this poor cat back to the so called owners. Get them for court, animal abuse.

Thanku for saving this little angel!! Blessings to all..

Poor Baby😢. Sending positive light and love❤️🙏

Poor cat

Jessica Yerxa looks like ozzy

❤️❤️❤️

People should try to not be judge others unless you know the full story…sometimes people do fall on hard times through no fault of their own, not everyone is neglectful. And not all vets allow charging, I've been with the same vet for over 30 years and they don't allow it anymore because they were screwed over so many times.

Hope he recovers quickly. Poor guy

Sweet baby

Poor little soul
