Urgent bladder surgery for Brewsky

Brewsky needs a life-saving bladder surgery

Update: We received an invoice for the surgery from the veterinarian, and the cost is a littler higher than anticipated, at $2553. Thank you for your donations to reach this goal!

When Brewsky became lethargic and wasn’t able to urinate, his guardian Don became concerned about his best friend. They are very close and Don quickly realized this behaviour was not normal.  Living as a very low-income person, Don knew he would not be able to pay for the full costs of Brewsky’s care and reached out to the Vancouver Humane Society for support.  Once we confirmed funding, he brought Brewsky straight to the vet. 

The vet determined that Brewsky is dealing with un-dissolvable bladder stones that will need to be removed to allow him to properly urinate again.  They are completing the costly cystotomy surgery, and hopefully Brewsky will be able to go back home soon.

Don told VHS, “I’m really grateful for your help. I’ve been walking around here like a lost pup! I never dreamed that a cat would be my best friend. He’s a people’s cat, he’s so social it’s incredible. He’s like a dog! I spend a lot of time with him.”

Brewsky 9 years old and truly is Don’s best friend. Can you help Brewsky get better by donating?
